Irish Stew in the Slow Cooker

Ooh eh eh!
Did I find the most amazing recipe for slow cooker Irish Stew!  It’s THIS ONE from The Home Based Mom off Pinterest, God bless you Pinterest for making my supper dreams come true.
I followed her non-alcoholic version as I didn’t have any Guinness in the house, but NEXT TIME…that Guinness is going in!!  I made some adjustments with the quantities of stock/meat because I only had 600gm of lamb knuckles at my disposal, and the recipe turned out DELICIOUS!
Here’s what you need:

  • 1/2 C  flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 600gm lamb knuckles
