Not Your Grandmother's Irish Lamb Stew

4 links lamb sausage
3 tbsp. oil
2 cloves garlic, fine chop
1 copra onion, medium dice
2 carrots, peeled, cut into 1/2 inch rounds
2 Gilfeather turnips, washed, quartered and cut into medium chunks
6 Norland potatoes, washed and cut into medium chunks
4 cups beef broth
1/4 cup fresh mint, rough chop

Greens - beet, spinach or braising greens

Prepare all vegetables and set aside.

Heat oil in a heavy soup pot. Once hot, add the sausage links and brown evenly on all sides. Remove to a plate and add onions, carrots and garlic. Saute for 3 minutes. Add beef broth, turnips and potatoes. When the sausage in cool enough to handle, slice each link into one inch pieces. Add to pot, cover and lower heat to simmer. When vegetables are tender, remove from heat and stir in mint and season with salt and pepper.

In a separate pan, heat a small amount of oil and sauté greens until barely wilted. Place greens in the bottom of a bowl and ladle the stew on top.
