Well, I should start by saying that I didn't use Irish whiskey, as I couldn't find any, so I used Scotch. But even so, the stew needed at least 1/3 a can of tomato paste for flavor, as there wasn't a ton there, and even though I tossed the lamb chunks in flour and browned them beforehand, it really wasn't very thick. I think with modifications, this could be a really nice recipe - the whiskey is a good background flavor.

A standard slow-cooker lamb stew with the addition of a shot of booze. Hardly original, but the booze does not spoil it - nor does it add that much to it. An edible dish, but not worth MY time to change from my tried and trusted recipe I have been using for years. I emphasise that this reaction is based upon MY taste characteristics. Others may find this good, particularly those who have not had a lamb stew before.

We had it for a St. Patty's Day party and it was awesome although I did change it up a bit. I added 1/2 cup of dry white wine and upped the Irish Whiskey (Jameson). I also used yellow boiler onions instead of cut yellow onion. Everyone loved it and the woody flavor from the whiskey was an interesting touch. We served it with Irish Soda Bread and it was great!
