  • 2 md Waxy potatoes
  • -- peeled and quartered
  • 2 md Russet potatoes; peeled

  • Salt and pepper; to taste


1 sm Bunch Italian parsley

*Strip leaves from the thyme sprigs, to equal abt. 2 tb. of fresh thyme.

**Cut carrots diagonally into 1/2" thick slices.

***Cut celery ribs diagonally into 1/2" thick slices.

Tie bay leaves, thyme and allspice berries together in a piece of
cheesecloth; set aside.

Brown lamb on all sides in a large (at least 8 qt.) heavy stockpot over
medium-high heat, 8 to 10 minutes. Add the onions and garlic and cook,
stirring frequently, until onions begin to turn translucent, 3 to 4

Add the cheesecloth bundle, wine, horseradish, Worcestershire and all the
vegetables to the meat, crushing the tomatoes with your hands or a wooden
spoon. Season generously with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, then
cover, reduce heat to medium, and cook until potatoes are tender and lamb
is falling from the bone, about 3 hours. (You can also transfer the stew to
a preheated 350 F. oven and cook it there for the same amount of time.)

Remove cover and continue cooking the stew until it has thickened somewhat
but is still soupy, an additional 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Remove the cheesecloth
bundle and season to taste, adding more horseradish if you like. Mince
parsley; sprinkle over stew. Serve immediately.
