Irish Stew

The second one in the stews. soup series from the weekend. Not exactly what purists would call an Irish stew, but inspired from it.

Ingredients (Serves 3):

  • Mutton- 200 gm (I actually was buying mutton for a kebab recipe, when I chanced upon the idea to do a stew with the bony parts. So dressed the meat away from the bone for kekab's and used the remainder for the stew)
  • Carrot- 1 large, diced
  • Potato- 1 large, diced
  • Raddish- 150 gm
  • Onions- 1 large, chopped
  • Garlic- 4 large cloves, chopped
  • Pepper- 2 tsp 
  • Parsley- 1 handful, chopped
  • Salt- To Taste

Preparation ( 1.5 hrs):

Cut mutton into small pieces. For the bony pieces, leave a little meat around the bones while dressing. In a large sauce pan, add  mutton, potatoes, onions, pepper, garlic and salt. Boil on high for 1 hr.

Add in raddish and chopped carrots. You could use turnips (didn't get them at the supermarket, hence used raddish). Simmer on medium heat for 1/2 hour. Throw in parsley for flavour and your stew is ready to serve.
