  • 2 pounds lamb shoulder cubed
  • 8 medium potatoes sliced/unpeeled
  • 3 Spanish onions sliced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme or
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 cups water


  • Using a sharp knife, trim excess fat from meat.
  • Put a layer of sliced potatoes into large stew pot, followed by layer of onions, and then a layer of the cubed meat, sprinkling parsley, thyme, and salt and pepper between the layers.
  • Continue layering and sprinkling, ending with a layer of potatoes on top.
  • Add water to pot, cover the pot and bring contents to a boil.
  • Turn down heat, and gently simmer until meat is quite tender, about 1 1/2 hours.
  • You may have to stir from time to time and add a little water to keep liquid level up.
  • Be careful not to overdo it, however. Irish stew is thick and should not drown in its own broth.
