There are some recipes that I have to borrow from, for some reasons that I don't have in my files. Many good Recipes that I read about Irish Lamb Stew but I don't know which is best. I am sure some of you foodies already have one--care to share? Ok, Happy Patrick's Day! Bon Appetit.

TIPS & NOTES
Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days or freeze for up to 1 month. | Equipment: 6-quart slow cooker
Tip: To clean leeks, trim and discard green tops and white roots. Split leeks lengthwise and place in plenty of water. Swish the leeks in the water to release any sand or soil. Drain. Repeat until no grit remains.
