Stew for a Cold Day

The frigid temperatures of the last few days really gave me a craving for a thick, hearty stew. The grocery store had some lamb for stew meat and it gave me a great idea. How could I transform the traditional ingredients of Shepherd's Pie into a meal that could be cooked in the crock pot?

Nutrition Tidbits

This stew is very high in Niacin, Phosphorus, Selenium, and Zinc. It is also high in vitamins A, B6, B12, and C. It can give chicken noodle soup a run for it's money! It's a great meal for when you have a cold.
