Lamb Stew, Colcannon, and Roasted Baby Carrots

This dish seems far more complicated than it is. It made the 1/2 hour active time mark with ease. It does require a slow cooker, though, and some night before or morning prep.

 

Lamb Stew

  • 1 lb lamb stew (shoulder) meat, cubed
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 1 carrot, peeled and chopped
  • 2 T olive oil
  • 1 T flour
  • 1 packaged sliced fresh mushrooms, ideally porcini
  • 2 T tomato paste
  • 1 can or bottle Guinness or other dark beer
  • 1 bunch fresh rosemary

1. Sautee first three ingredients in olive oil in a large skillet, until lamb browns. Add flour and cook 2 minutes.

2. Put skillet mixture and all other ingredients in a slow cooker and cook on low for 6 hours. Remove rosemary,  salt to taste, and serve. 

Colcannon

  • 3 large potatoes, peeled and cubed, either Yukon Gold or russet
  • 3 slices thick-cut bacon, cubed
  • 1/2 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cups green cabbage, shredded
  • 1/3 cup whole milk
  •  1/4 cup butter

1. Place potatoes in a saucepan with enough cold water to cover. Bring to a boil and cook for 15 to 20 minutes, until tender.

2. While potatoes cook, sautee bacon in a large skillet until brown. Remove with a slotted spoon. Add onions and cabbage to skillet, and sautee until translucent. 

3. Drain cooked potatoes, mash with milk and butter, and add bacon, cabbage, and onions. Salt to taste.

Roasted Baby Carrots

  • 2 bunches baby carrots, tops cut so just 1 inch of greens remain
  • 2 T olive oil
  • salt

Toss carrots with olive oil and salt. Place in a foiled roasted pan. Roast at 375 for 40 minutes.

Fun Facts

The longest place name in Ireland is Muckanaghederdauhaulia, in County Galway.

An odd Irish birthday tradition is to lift the birthday child upside down and give his head a few gentle bumps on the floor for good luck. The number of bumps should allegedly correspond to the child’s age plus one.

The original Guinness Brewery in Dublin has a 9,000 year lease on it's property, at a perpetual rate of 45 Irish pounds per year.
