Hearty Lamb Stew With Mushrooms and Carrots

READY IN: 1hr 35mins
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

This recipe will feed 3-4 people, it can easily be doubled, and is best if prepared a day ahead, refrigerated and warmed the following day. I have made this stew many times, it is wonderful! Serve with hot cooked egg noodles. I like to add in some frozen peas also.

I halved the crushed red pepper. Very good with mashed potatoes. Might add green beans next time. I actually made it with Ram instead of Lamb, but the taste was very comparable.
