Irish Lamb Stew




In honor of St. Patty’s Day being right around the corner, we wanted to share a recipe for a traditional Irish meal that is both healthy and tasty! Even if this holiday is not for you, this meal certainly can be! Impress your friends with this slow cooked meat and let them know that it’s healthy to boot.
Ingredients
2 pounds boneless leg of lamb, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces 1 3/4 pounds white potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces 3 large leeks, white part only, halved, washed (see Tip) and thinly sliced 3 large carrots, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces 3 stalks celery, thinly sliced 1 14-ounce can reduced-sodium chicken broth 2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme 1 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper 1/4 cup packed fresh parsley leaves, chopped
Preparation
Combine lamb, potatoes, leeks, carrots, celery, broth, thyme, salt and pepper in a 6-quart slow cooker; stir to combine. Put the lid on and cook on low until the lamb is fork-tender, about 8 hours. Stir in parsley before serving.
Tips & Notes
Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days or freeze for up to 1 month. | Equipment: 6-quart slow cooker
