Irish Stew Recipe
My 6 step-children are Irish and Ant lived in Northern Ireland for around 20 years, so we figured we’d make a traditional Irish stew in honour of St Patrick’s Day tomorrow 🙂
I’ve never been to Northern Ireland but it’s somewhere I’ve always wanted to go. It looks so beautiful.
The quantities in this recipe are a guide only. You can use whatever quantities you have, as well as adding other vegetables, and still end up with a delicious stew.
- 4 onions peeled and chopped
- 6 large carrots roughly chopped
- 1kg floury potatoes peeled and roughly chopped
- 1kg cheap cut of mutton or lamb cut into bite sized pieces
- Handful of parsley
- Salt to taste
- Add all the ingredients to a large lidded saucepan
- Cover with water and bring to the boil
- Reduce heat and simmer for around 3 hours
- Serve hot with soda farls
This was popular with everyone. It was made all the better with chunks of Ant’s homemade bread dipped in! I don’t usually have Ant’s bread. I usually have wholemeal as part of my Slimming World eating plan but, I had a treat today 🙂
Everyone else had his home made soda farls and I’ll be putting a recipe up for those soon.
Happy St Patrick’s Day, for tomorrow, to all who celebrate it.
