Irish Lamb Stew
Recipe from EatingWell

Lamb stew is Irish penicillin: a rich stew full of potatoes, leeks and carrots that'll cure whatever ails you. In traditional fashion, nothing here is browned first, just all stewed together. To keep it healthy make sure to trim the lamb of any visible fat before you cook it.

MAKE AHEAD TIP: Cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days or freeze for up to 1 month.
