Stove top Lamb Stew

Sunday, November 11, 2018
Lamb stew is one of my favorites and we all love the series Game of Thrones in our home so we make this as a traditional meal every week.

What's that have to do with Game of Thrones? The foods they eat in that fantasy series is awesome looking.

Their foods consist of varieties of mutton (sheep) stews, goat, wild boar, many fruits like honey melons, pomegranates, plums.

We watch that series religiously every Sunday on HBO and this week I made this lamb stew to feel a little more like that fantasy made up time period.

The series is addicting and our whole family is huge fans of Game of Thrones.

Of course, the series is coming to an end and has been so much just fun, it's such great family time.

The family also loves lamb and coming up with new ideas for me like this one.

This recipe just may be the one we have just about every week until the end of this final season.

Lamb Makes A Great Stew

I love lamb pretty much any way it's cooked, as long as it's tender.

This stew is fork-tender and perfect every time.

We use either Guinness Beer or red wine to cook it in that makes it tender and juicy with so much extra flavor!

Growing up my mom made lamb stew often and I was always happy with its unique flavor over any other meats she ever made and it was so delicious.

Now I make it often, especially on cooler nights and winter.

Right now it's dedicated to our favorite series and family night.

Games of Thrones Fans

Game of Thrones is an American fantasy drama television series created by David Benioff and D. B. Weiss.

The show is filmed in Belfast and elsewhere in Northern Ireland, Canada, Croatia, Iceland, Malta, Morocco, Scotland, Spain, and the United States.

The series premiered on HBO in the United States on April 17, 2011, and will conclude with its eighth season, which will premiere on April 14, 2019

It's been two years since the last season!

We look forward to it every week and try to recreate foods that seem to fit that fantasy time period created.

It's always sad to see a favorite series end.

We also are big fans of Sopranos and that was a total Italian food story.

We loved to cook all Italian foods when that series was still on also.

Sunday was is our  Funday and back then we ate a whole lot of pasta!

Comfort Food and the Last Season

Since this is the last season of the Game of Thrones, I plan on making foods similar to what the series had.

Lamb is one of our all-time favorite meats, and this stew is easy and delicious.

We sure will miss this great series but have certainly enjoyed every episode.

If you love Lamb!

We love all kinds of lamb prepared in different ways.

You may remember another favorite above call Lamb Shank Cabernet?

This lamb stew is a hearty bowl of delicious old fashioned flavors.

Easy to make and it doesn't matter what kind of tv show you're watching, it's a great comfort food period.

The shoulder makes a great stew but you will have to sear the shoulder in oil and garlic then cool cut it up and place the boneless meat into the stewpan.

It's economical, a tasty part of the lamb for stew, just a little more work if you aren't using the leftover leg of lamb or lamb stew meat already cut up.
