Big Irish Lamb Stew

3 lb Lamb shoulder
1 qt Cold water
1 md Onion, sliced
1 Celery top
5 1/4 oz Consomme
1 sm Garlic clove, crushed
1 ts Brown sugar
1 Parsley sprig
1/8 ts Thyme leaves
1 Bay leaf
1/4 ts Pepper
2 Potatoes, raw *1
12 sm Onions, whole, parboiled
6 Potatoes *2
1 tb Salt
2 c Cooked peas, *3

*1 finely shredded and peeled. *2 cut into walnut sized pieces. *3 Fresh, canned or frozen.

Trim bones and skin from meat and cut into 2 inch pieces. Place all trimmings but skin in heavy saucepan with water, sliced onion and celery. Simmer slowly until all flavor is drawn from trimmings and bones, about 30 minutes if bones are small. Strain, reserve liquid for stew, adding consomme.

Brown meat in heavy skillet with fat. Place in stew pot; add garlic, brown sugar, parsley, thyme, bay leaf and pepper. Add shredded potatoes and boiling broth to cover.

Cook slowly, uncovered, to reduce broth, about 1 1/2 hours. (liquid will be slightly thickened and shredded potatoes entirely dissolved.)

Add whole onions, potato pieces and salt; cook 30 minutes. Serve in tureen with circle of peas around edge.
