This quick meal prep starts with easy to find ingredients:
Publix grocery store has a wonderful butcher who helped me out with the stew meat. I selected a lamb roast and asked the butcher to trim off the fat and cut it into stew meat. This is a huge time saver plus you get leaner stew meat.

Special Notes Irish Lamb Stew
I did not cook the potatoes in the Irish lamb stew, instead I cooked them separately in a pot of boiling water adding them to individual servings. Since I do not eat white potatoes, I omitted them because of my anti-inflammatory diet.
I attended a cooking demonstration last night and I watched the instructor use a paring knife to slice veggies. It would have taken her half the time if she had used the proper knife. Meal prep is a joy to me as long as I have the proper tools to get the job done efficiently. This video shows the proper way to cut carrots. Please notice the knife.
