This may come as a great disappointment to some but halt the celebrations.

Reports of my demise are both premature and exaggerated

The best way to deal with an old sheep :-D :-D :-D

1 pound neck and breast of mutton cut into 2-inch chunks
2 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
6 cups chicken stock
2 ribs celery, cut into 1-inch chunks
1 medium sweet onion, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks
1/4 cup ketchup
1/4 pound green beans, trimmed and cut into 1-inch lengths
1 large russet potato, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks
1 small turnip, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks
2 medium carrots, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks

Sprinkle mutton or lamb generously with salt and pepper, then dust with flour.

Heat oil in a heavy Dutch oven pot large enough to hold all ingredients. Quickly brown the mutton in a single layer, taking care not to crowd the meat. (You may need to do this in batches.) Add chicken stock, celery, sweet onion, and ketchup. Stir to combine.

Bring to a slow boil, reduce heat, cover, and simmer for about 1 hour.

After the mutton has cooked for 1 hour, add green beans, potato, turnip, and carrots to the meat in the pot. Stir to combine. Return to a slow boil and simmer until vegetables are tender, about an additional 30 minutes. Taste and add additional salt and pepper if necessary.
