We make no apologies for not always specifying exact weights and measures - just follow your instincts like we do - it really is THE best way to create new recipes and dishes!
For the meatballs:
Mix together 500g of minced organic lamb, 4 finely sliced spring onions, a bunch of parsley (chopped), and season generously with sea salt and black pepper.
Take a portion of the mixture and using your hands, roll into a ball the size of a large walnut.
For perfectly round meatballs though we use our fave new gadget: the scissor action 'meatballer'!
A must for all true meatball lovers and less hands-on cooks!
Once you've prepared all the balls, roll them in seasoned flour, shaking off any excess.
Then fry in plain oil over a medium-high heat until golden.
Lower the heat and drain off most of the fat left in the pan, leaving a tablespoon or so.
At this point you an either continue cooking on the hob or transfer to the oven if you are using a suitable hob-to-oven casserole.
Cover the meatballs with pre-made or shop-bought organic lamb or beef stock.
Add a couple of thyme sprigs and a bay leaf to the pan, cover with a tight fitting lid and braise until tender (around an hour).
Around 15 minutes before the end of the cooking time add prepared baby carrots.
Increase the heat to medium, remove the lid and reduce the sauce until it has a gravy consistency.
Serve generous portions of this delicious and hearty 'Irish meatball stew' alongside champ & colcannon.
Finish with a garnish of freshly chopped parsley.
Prepare a batch of creamy mashed potatoes just how YOU like them, and divide into 2.
For the colcannon add shredded cooked kale or cabbage to one portion, not forgetting the traditional ‘well’ of melting butter!
For the champ, add sliced spring onions and stir through.
A slice of buttered soda bread to accompany is a must, and a Guinness, if you’re in the mood!
Enjoy & “May the luck of the Irish enfold you!"
