Cutco knives opened a local store here recently. Since my roommate is a
devoted Cutco user we attended their grand opening and got invites to their
Taste of Ireland presentation, and  we got the following recipes. We also
got to try everything except the cabbage, and I was able to talk to the chef
about adapting the recipes to sight-impaired needs.
Below are the recipes for Irish Grilled Cheese Sandwiches, Fried Irish
Cabbage with Bacon, Irish Lamb Stew, and Irish Bananas. Note that in the
bananas he used Jamison Irish Whisky, and it was very tasty. These would be
great things for your next year St. Patrick's Day meal if you want to serve
something besides the very Irish-American corned beef and cabbage. I still
need a good Colcannon (sp?) recipe.
All recipes are in Meal Master format. A legend of abbreviation codes is at
the end of the recipes.

Preheat oven to 350°f. Wash lamb and pat dry. Season with salt and pepper.

oven-safe soup pot over medium heat. (This should take about five minutes,
turning chunks to brown evenly) Set meat

Arrange potatoes on top (they don't have to be 

submerged). Season with salt and pepper. Cover pot. Transfer to oven. Bake
for approx 1 hour. Stew is ready when 

lamb is very tender. Skim fat and serve. For thicker stew, crush some of the
potatoes, or add a slurry of 

Stovetop: Keep covered at a gentle simmer for approx 1 hour.
Slow Cooker: Brown the meat as directed, then place all ingredients into the
crock and cook for 7-9 hours on low.
