There's nothing more warming on a cold, wet day than a simple Irish stew made with lamb and potatoes. This is my mum's recipe.
I used 5 medium sized potatoes and still think it was a bit too much. Maybe the author used 8 very small potatoes. Anyways, I had to double the amount of chicken stock to accommodate the amount of potatoes. With only salt as the seasoning, I found the stew quite bland so I added thyme and rosemary. It is comfort food, nothing elaborate about it, nothing that jumps out at you flavor-wise. - 15 Mar 2012 (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
not a favorite. Recipe was very bland, no seasonings other then salt. While it was easy to make, I love lamb, this was not a favorite with my family other in my oldest chid. And I wasn't sure how much parsley or leeks to add. So I just added a few tablespoons of each and hoped that I added the right amount. - 19 Mar 2012 (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
Loved this recipe - Added leeks at the same time that I added the onions, which made for some very very delicious flavoring! - 18 Mar 2012 (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
