delicious! i love barley and lamb so this was a no fail recipe, plus being able to throw it all in the crockpot before going to work is an added bonus! the only change i made was to sub the turnip for 2 potatoes which i cut into chunks and added. this is a keeper

Absolutely love this recipe! We served it with pickled red cabbage which cuts through the richness of the lamb perfectly. Also some crusty bread to sop up the lovely juices!!! Yum!

Lovely recipe, I used Guinness instead of the dark beer and served it with creamy mashed potato, which was very well received by the whole family. Also the smell wafting through the house all afternoon as it cooked was fabulous. Thank you x

Oh my, this is good! We made this on the stovetop and it didn't take long at all. I used left over lamb meat from roasted leg of lamb and just added it at the end until it was hot. We used guiness for the beer, but I think it was too bitter. Next time, we'll try murphy's or something not quite as dark. Thanks so much for the recipe!

This is a lovely, rib-sticking winter stew and just the ticket for some tough lamb that we had on hand. We needed to double up on the thyme, salt and pepper for fuller flavor.

This recipe contains ingregients that I love. . right down to the beer!! So I knew this would be a winner for me before I made it. I used fresh mint leaves instead of parsley. Thanks for the recipe Geema.

I also used potatoes and didn't have thyme so used sage leaves. Really enjoyed and easy to make in the crockpot.
