Modified a recipe I received from my neighborhood's Lucky Charms festival. I added purple sweet potato, doubled the spices, doubled the carrots, and added a pinch of mint. This is the perfect stew to give to your favorite Leprechaun. It will turn them purple and they will freak out!

  • 1 pound lamb stew meat, cut into 1-inch cubes

  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • ½ cup chopped onion, or to taste

  • 2 cups chicken broth

  • 1 pound carrots, cut into 1/2-inch slices

  • ¾ pound purple sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed

  • ½ pound russet potatoes, cubed

  • 2 teaspoons salt

  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard

  • 2 teaspoons ground thyme

  • 2 teaspoons dried rosemary

  • 1 ½ teaspoons tomato paste

  • ½ teaspoon dried mint

  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper, or more to taste

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley, or to taste


  1. Toss lamb in flour to coat.

  2. Heat oil in a multi-functional pressure cooker (such as Instant Pot) set to the Saute function. Add lamb to the hot oil and brown on all sides, 3 to 4 minutes. Add onion and saute until soft, 3 to 4 minutes.

  3. Pour broth into the pot and bring to a boil while scraping the browned bits of food off the bottom of the pan with a spatula. Stir in carrots, sweet potatoes, russet potatoes, salt, Dijon mustard, thyme, rosemary, tomato paste, mint, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Hit Cancel.

  4. Close and lock the lid. Select high pressure according to manufacturer's instructions; set timer for 15 minutes. Allow 10 to 15 minutes for pressure to build.

  5. Release pressure using the natural-release method according to manufacturer's instructions, 10 minutes. Switch to the quick-release method to release remaining pressure, about 5 minutes. Unlock and remove the lid.

  6. Garnish servings with fresh parsley and season with pepper.


You can use beef broth instead of chicken, and taro root or golden russets for the sweet potatoes.
