DIRECTIONS

  • Cut the meat into good size chunks.
  • Peel the vegetables and slice thickly.
  • Chop the parsley.
  • Choose a pot with a well-fitting lid and put in the ingredients in layers, starting and finishing with potatoes.
  • Pour in the water and season to taste.
  • Cover and put on a very low heat for about 2 1/2 hours until the meat is tender and the potatoes have thickened the liquid.
  • The dish may also be made with lamb, in which case it requires only 1 1/2 hours cooking time.
  • I prefer to make this in a crock pot and let cook all day or over night, it lets the flavors blend extra well.
  • If using mutton let cook on low for 8 hours, with lamb only 5 hours will make an excellent stew.
