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 was...

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 t...
