Irish inspired lamb stew


First of all, I must say that it isn't an authentical recipe. The recipes I read asked for cooking the stew in the oven. However, I decided to make it faster and made it on the stove. My husband loved it because it was really delicious, I loved it because it was so easy to make!!!

What we need:

400 gr of lamb ( shoulder part)
2-3 carrots
1 big onion
2-3 cloves of garlic
2-3 potatoes
2 l lamb stock or water
thyme
salt and pepper
parsley
oil
2 roasted tomatoes

What we have to do:

1. Cut lamb into pieces, season with salt and pepper, some thyme. Fry the pieces with some oil in a pot until light brown. Remove the meat from the pot.
2. Cut vegetables into pieces. Put chopped onion and garlic into a pot and saute for 2-3 minutes, then add carrots and potatoes. Mix it and put the meat in. Pour the stock, add some more seasoning and thyme. Bring it to boil and simmer for 30 minutes. Then add peeled and finely chopped roasted tomatoes ( or you can use fresh ones). Mix it all together and simmer again for about 10 minutes. Vegetables and meat should be soft by now.
3. Garnish with parsley and serve. It is a dish on its own! Enjoy!!!
