Sitting here in Wicklow Ireland and looking through recipes for dinner tomorrow. I usually look here as I can find something a wee bit different to the usual fare on Irish websites. I cooked this with the wine which I found odd putting into s stew but hey I did say I wanted something different to Irish food. The recipe is perfect but God the wine ruins it. Leave it out. Traditionally we don't put any alcohol into stews. Stews came from a time when people had very little and if they had a bottle of guinness etc they certianly wouldnt have wasted it on cooking. Wine was something the Irish never had accept the upper class british here at the time so that deffinitly wouldnt have been in a stew. As I said the reipe is perfect but leave out the bitter wine and its gorgeous.
