Irish Stew with Lamb & Potatoes

Thank you Robb Walsh

Prep: 35 m
Ready In: 5 h

 “Traditional Irish lamb stew is made with inexpensive shoulder or neck cuts of lamb, but for possibly the best Irish stew you'll ever make, give this version made with leg of lamb a try. Choose a bone-in cut to make the rich, flavourful broth for this healthy lamb stew. Requiring just a handful of ingredients and 35 minutes of active time, this lamb stew isn't just tasty—it's also easy!”

Ingredients
• 1.5kg leg of lamb with shank bone, trimmed
• 1 large gold onion
• 1 small bunch fresh parsley, stems and leaves separated, plus more for garnish
• 6 sprigs fresh thyme, stems and leaves separated
• 2 bay leaves
• 6 cups water
• 1kg potatoes, peeled, halved and thickly sliced
• 1¼ teaspoons salt, divided

Directions
1. Preheat oven to 200°C
2 Cut meat off the leg of lamb and cut into 1-inch pieces. Refrigerate. Place the bone in a roasting pan. Roast until browned, about 40 minutes.
3. Transfer the roasted bone to a large saucepan. Peel onion (reserve skin), slice and set aside. Add the onion skin, parsley and thyme stems and bay leaves to the saucepan. Add water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to maintain a simmer. Partially cover and cook until any meat is falling off the bone and the stock is brown, about 1 hour. Strain the stock through a fine-mesh sieve into a bowl. (Discard solids.) You should have 4 cups stock.
4. Preheat oven to 120°C.
5. Arrange half the potatoes in a large ovenproof pot. Sprinkle with ½ teaspoon salt. Top with the reserved meat, sliced onion and parsley and thyme leaves. Sprinkle with ½ teaspoon salt and top with the remaining potatoes. Sprinkle with the remaining ¼ teaspoon salt. Pour in the stock.
6 . Bring the stew to a simmer over low heat (do not boil). Cover the pot and carefully transfer it to the oven. Bake until the meat is very tender and the potatoes and onions are very soft, 2 to 3 hours.
To make ahead: Refrigerate stock (Steps 1-3) for up to 2 days. Refrigerate stew for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 3 months.

Thank you Adam Dolge via eatingwell.com

Prep: 20 m

Ready In: 7 h 20 m

Browning the chicken and sautéing the aromatics before everything goes into the crock pot is key to building the flavours in this version of this popular curry.

Equipment: Slow cooker

Ingredients
• 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
• 1 kg boneless, skinless chicken thighs, trimmed
• 1 cup chopped gold onion
• 2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger
• 1½ teaspoons grated garlic

• 1¾ cups water
• 1 cup long-grain brown rice
• ¾ teaspoon kosher salt

Directions
1. Heat oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook until golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Transfer to a 6-quart slow cooker.
2. Add onion to the pan and cook, stirring occasionally, until translucent, about 4 minutes. Stir in ginger, garlic, garam masala and cardamom; cook, stirring constantly, until fragrant, about 1 minute.
3. Transfer the mixture to the slow cooker. Stir in coconut milk, broth and tomato paste. Cover and cook on Low until the chicken is tender and cooked through, 7 to 8 hours.
4. About 40 minutes before serving, combine water and rice in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Stir and cover; reduce heat to low and simmer until the rice is tender, about 30 minutes. Remove from heat and let stand, covered, for 10 minutes. Fluff with a fork.
