It’s St Patrick’s Day so why not celebrate with Irish stew inspired meatballs, colcannon & champ?!
To make the meatballs – mix together minced lamb + finely sliced spring onions + chopped parsley + S&P
Roll the meatballs in flour and fry until golden
Drain off any excess fat
Cover the meatballs with lamb stock and braise until tender
Add a sprig of thyme if you like
Add baby carrots 15 minutes before the end of cooking time
Prepare a batch of creamy mashed potatoes
Add cooked kale for the colcannon
Not forgetting the traditional ‘well’ of melting butter!
Add sliced spring onions for the champ
Once the sauce has reduced to a gravy consistency serve generous portions alongside the champ & colcannon, & sprinkle with fresh chopped parsley
A slice of buttered soda bread to accompany is a must, and a Guinness, if you’re in the mood!
“May the luck of the Irish enfold you”!
