I am Craving for Lamb Stew!

If I were to choose what I would like to eat right now whilst I’m recovering from the flu, (Mercifully, no: it’s not the dreaded AH1N1!) it would have to be the Irish Lamb Stew from Secret Recipe.  Trust me: it isn’t like any lamb stew you may have had in the past unless you’re the type who can actually make the sort of caldereta to make even the angels weep.

Imagine: a lamb shank cooked till the meat practically falls off the bone and melts in one’s mouth, its very substance adding body and savor to the dark gravy around it.  The dish comes with the usual accoutrements of stew: carrots and peas in the gravy and a crisp-chewy cloud of mashed potato on top.  (I keep wondering if there’s any dark beer in the gravy.  If there is, wow is all I can say. :D) 

It’s big enough for two – even three – people to share and you can opt for either a freshly baked bun or a cup of buttered rice to go with it.  (I vote for the rice.)  Seriously: you will find yourself gnawing the bone by the end of the meal and wishing you ordered another one – even if you’re already well-sated by the first!
