I wanted to like this more, but I found the paprika overpowering, but not in a flavorful way. Maybe the paprika I used was too old, so if I try this again, I would use a little or none, and substitute something a little spicier in its place.
The recipes was delicious. Because it was what was available and what was more inexpensive, I used a combination of lamb shoulder and neck meat. And while I used the bacon fat to fry the meat, I used it sparingly and sometimes in combination with olive oil. My version also used Guinness instead of wine, and I used beef broth instead of stock, which worked just as great, and added an additional cup of the stock so that there would be more stew and it wouldn't be so thick (and it was still thick and hearty, but not solid). Highly recommended recipe!
Fantastic cornbread--best I've ever had! The one-pan prep is also great. I served these at a chili cookoff and people ate it all up. You can really taste the buttermilk, which helped to cut some of the hotter chilis.
