Lean lamb is layered with potatoes and other veggies and baked to fork-tenderness. A perfect main dish for a St. Patrick’s Day dinner, and a great way to introduce kids to a new meat.

Ingredients
2 lbs. (1 kg.) boneless lamb shoulder, cut into 1 inch (2 cm) cubes
4 medium potatoes, sliced 1/2 inch (1 cm) thick
2 medium onions, sliced 1/4 inch (.5 cm) thick
2 stalks celery, sliced 1/4 inch (.5 cm) thick
4 medium carrots, peeled and sliced 1/4 inch (.5 cm) thick
1 tsp. (5 mL) salt
1/2 tsp. (2 mL) thyme
1/4 tsp. (1 mL) black pepper
1 cup (250 mL) water
2 tbsp. (30 mL) chopped fresh parsley

Cooking Instructions
1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (160 degrees C).

2. In a large Dutch oven or covered casserole, layer the ingredients in the following order: lamb cubes, sliced potatoes, sliced onions, sliced celery, sliced carrots, sprinkling each layer with salt, pepper and thyme.

3. Add the water to the pot, cover, and slowly bring to a boil over medium-low heat.

4. Let simmer for 5 minutes, then transfer the pot to the oven and bake, without lifting the lid or stirring, for 2 to 2-1/2 hours or until the lamb is tender.

5. Sprinkle with chopped parsley, stir very gently to mix (the potatoes will be very soft) and serve.

ah I've learned the BEST TIP EVER for st patricks day - DONT GO TO AN IRISH PUB!!!

They end up packed to the gills (especially on a saturday) and you can't move, you can't get to the bar and you sure as hell can't talk. And dancing? forget it!

So we're going to a non-irish pub (the leedy). we went last year and it was great - green beer, guiness, people.. but not CRAZY packed! we have a big crew going so we can chat, and the best thing - at the end of the night we danced our butts off!
