Irish Stew

1½ LB cubed lamb
¾ cup onion-sliced
1 ¾ LB peeled sliced potatoes
1 tsp. salt
¼ tsp. black pepper
1 bay leaf
2 cup hot stock or water
1 tsp. chopped fresh rosemary
¾ lb. sliced sweet potatoes
2 Tbs. finely chopped parsley

  1. In a heavy pot place a layer of potatoes, meat and onion. Season with salt and pepper, then repeat twice, ending with a layer of potatoes.
  2. Add to the pot rosemary and bay leaf, and pour over the stock.
  3. Slowly bring to a boil. Cover and simmer slowly for about 1½ hours. Shake pot periodically to keep the potatoes from sticking.
  4. After 1½ hours, add sweet potatoes and parsley. Cook for an additional hour.

It is done when all the moisture has been absorbed by the potatoes and the lamb is tender.
