One-pot cooking (using only one pot to cook a whole meal) doesn’t get much simpler than Irish stew. Traditionally, you use mutton for Irish stew. You cook it for hours, adding onions and potatoes and even carrots. Because many shops and butchers don’t sell mutton, you can also make it with lamb. To give it extra flavour, add thyme, parsley and bay leaves.
