    Leslie in Texas's Note:

    This recipe comes from an August 1986 issue of Bon Appetit that featured an article titled "An Irish Ramble" that included recipes from Houses and Hotels in Ireland. Americans usually use lamb shoulder for Irish stew, but in Ireland neck slices are the thing. And here's some advice every good Irish cook heeds; "A stew boiled is a stew spoiled," meaning, keep the kettle at a simmer.
