Irish Lamb Chop Stew

8 small lamb chops
salt and pepper to taste
1 Tbs. vegetable oil
parsley, bay leaves, thyme, rosemary
1 lb. potatoes (3 to 4 medium)
2 cups finely shredded cabbage
1 medium onion, chopped
1 large leek, sliced thin
12 small white onions
1-1/2 C. diced celery
1-1/2 C. peas
fresh parsley, chopped, for garnish

Season chops with salt and pepper. Heat oil in saucepan wide enough to hold all chops in a single layer. Brown on both sides. Spoon off any melted fat and add enough water to cover chops. Bring to a boil and add parsley, bay leaf, peppercorns, thyme and rosemary enclosed in cheesecloth. Lower heat and simmer. Meanwhile, peel potatoes and shape into bite sized rounds. Chop trimmings from potatoes into small pieces. Add potatoes, trimmings, cabbage, onion, well-rinsed leek, white onions and celery to chops and liquid. Simmer 20 minutes then add peas. Add a little more water if needed during cooking. Simmer 10 minutes more or until potatoes are tender. Add more seasoning, if needed. Garnish with parsley and serve.
