    LastBaron's Note:

    A traditional Irish stew, as handed down by my grandmother, who was born and raised and is now buried in Bangor, Co. Down, Ulster. This recipe has been modified slightly, as indicated in my comment below. This is a good, hearty stew, whcih is excellent fare anytime there's "a chill in the air."

    1. 1
      Combine flour, salt and pepper.
    2. 2

    3. 3

    8. 8
      Thicken gravy, if necessary, with cornstarch-sauce slurry.
    9. 9
      :In Ireland, the lamb used is*never* boneless.
    10. 10
      A stew is, by Irish tastes and sensibilities (and very much contrary to the American perception thereof),*not* an elegant dish, but rather a working dish that can be made and left unattended while good Irish lads and lassies are out toiling in the fields, tending the lambs and sheep that are used in this dish, or following other gainful pursuits and pastimes.
    11. 11
      The bones have been removed here to adjust this recipe to more molly-coddled American tastes.

      FYI two things: A.) Bones are very nutritious and have been removed from American tables by grocers. Just try to find a knuckle now. AND B.) I bet your grandmother never used canola oil, unless this isn't really traditional. Canola oil has only been around since the 20th century. In spite of your obvious dislike for Americans, I thank you for your contribution and forgive you your prejudice. Good luck.
