This is Emerald Isle penicillin: a rich stew that'll cure whatever ails you. In traditional fashion, nothing here is browned first, just all stewed together.
Prep Time:30 min
Ingredients
  • 2 pounds boneless leg of lamb, trimmed of fat and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 3/4 pounds white potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 3 large carrots, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 3 stalks celery, thinly sliced
  • 3 large leeks, white part only, halved, washed and thinly sliced
  • 1 14-ounce can reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1/4 cup packed parsley leaves, chopped
Directions
Combine lamb, potatoes, carrots, celery, leeks, broth, thyme, salt and pepper in a 6-quart slow cooker; stir to combine. Put the lid on and cook on low until the lamb is fork-tender, about 8 hours. Stir in parsley before serving.
