Ingredients

3 tablespoons Olive oil

4 slices Center-cut bacon

5 pounds Lamb stew meat

2 cups Mushrooms, quartered

2 Large carrots, roughly chopped

5 Garlic cloves, smashed

2 Vidalia onions, roughly chopped

1/4 cup All-purpose flour

4 cups Beef stock

1/2 cup Sherry

3 Bay leaves

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Method of Preparation

In a large pot over medium-high heat, add the olive oil and bacon. When the bacon begins to lightly brown, remove it from the pot with a slotted spoon and set aside. Add the lamb and let the meat brown on all sides, about 3 minutes per side. Remove the meat with a slotted spoon and set aside. Chop the bacon into 1/4-inch pieces.

Add the mushrooms, carrots, garlic, onions and bacon to the pot and stir. Mix in the flour. Add the beef stock, sherry, bay leaves and lamb. Add salt and pepper and cover the pot but leave a vent for the steam to escape. Bring the mixture to a simmer and simmer until the meat is tender and falling apart, about 2 hours.

Serve over your favorite pasta or potato
