  1. Peel then roughly chop the Carrots and Garlic, slice the Onions and chop up the Bacon, then add to a casserole dish.
  2. Fry with a little oil on the hob for 5 minutes. Then add the Lamb and fry until sealed and browned.
  3. Crumble in the 2 Veg Stock Cubes, Thyme, Potatoes (roughly chopped, no need to peel) and Guinness.
  4. Thoroughly stir everything then bring the casserole to the boil.
  5. Put the lid on then place in the oven on 180c for between 1½ and 2 hours.
