    Derf's Note:

    This is comfort food. Serve with Irish soda bread and a mix of carrots and peas. This stew can also be cooked in a crockpot, layer the same and cook on low for 8 hours.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 lbs boned lamb (Lamb is traditional) or 2 lbs boned beef, sliced, 1/4 inch slices (Lamb is traditional)
    • 2 lbs peeled potatoes, thinly sliced (a mandolin slicer works best)
    • 3 large onions, thinly sliced
    • salt and pepper, each layer to taste
    • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley
    • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme or 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
    • 13 ounces water

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Trim the meat, leaving a little of the fat and slice.
    2. 2
      Season the meat and veggies with salt, pepper, 2 teaspoons of parsley and the thyme.
    3. 3
      Layer the potatoes, meat and onions in a large casserole, starting and finishing with a layer of potatoes.
    4. 4
      Add the water and cover tightly.
    5. 5
      Cook in a preheated oven at 275 degrees for 2 1/2 hours, shake occasionally to prevent sticking, and check liquid now and then.
    6. 6
      Do not add unless absolutly necessary.
    7. 7
      The potatoes will thicken the finished stew so it should not be too runny.
    8. 8
      Just before serving, remove lid and brown the top under a hot broiler and sprinkle with remaining parsley.
    9. 9
      The potatoes on top should be nice and brown and crisp.

      Dorothy, I was just going to post this recipe but I see you beat me to it. This is an authentic version that is simple and quick. The meat is not browned and requires just potatoes and onions. In my version I use bay leaf instead of thyme, 1 cup beef broth and 1 cup beer instead of water and I don't brown the potatoes. Current food trends seem so dependent on a long list of ingredients and strange parrings. It is so wonderful to eat such delicious simple food.

      This was very easy to make. I used my crockpot and cooked all day long-was ready right after the football game! Great flavor with just simple ingredients.

      This stew was amazing! It took about 10mins to prepare. I used lamb and let it cook slow all afternoon. By dinnertime the wonderful aroma had me on my knees! I would recommend this recipe especially to the guys out there who want a REALLY easy way to make a dinner that lasts for 2 days of breakfast, lunch & dinner ;)
