Irish Stew, My Way

Recipe by  

"Ireland has so many wonderful tastes to please the palate. Of all of those great culinary delights, Irish Stew would have to be a favorite of mine. Apparently, my family agrees, because a pot full of 'Irish Stew, My Way' doesn't last long around this house. Served inside a bread bowl or with fresh dinner rolls on the side, it is a hearty and savory meal. Give it a try."

  2. Transfer the skillet mixture to a large pot. Mix in the carrots, turnip, parsnips, red bell pepper, yellow bell pepper, green bell pepper, remaining onion, and celery. Pour in the beer. Cover, and cook 2 hours over low heat.

I love this recipe! And best of all, my family do too! I left out the bell peppers though, as my husband has an allergy to them, but it still tasted great, and was easy as pie to make!

Sorry, but we didn't like this. The Italian seasoning seemed a bit strange, but I wanted to follow the recipe exactly; I should have followed my instinct. Additionally, it needed a lot more salt than what the recipe calls for. It just wasn't very good. Thumbs down on this one.

Very good! We liked the combination of vegetables, so I didn't change anything. (This is unusual for me--I like to experiment.) Will definitely make this again.

This made a fine, satisfying meal, and I will undoubtedly make this in the future. I did have to had water to the recipe though; the broth and beer did not provide enough liquid for all the meat and veggies to simmer in.

I made this for my husband and he loved it. Then a few neighboorhood kids dropped by and they loved it, and when their folks came by they finished it off!! Everyone enjoyed it, and the kids asked for seconds on the turnips!!thanks for the great recipe.

I changed the recipe a bit to suit my family of vegetarians by using 2 lbs. soy chicken and unchicken broth for the beef broth. Was a huge hit! Everyone had seconds. Will be a winter staple!

This receipe is fantastic! My husband loved it. I used just pork and no lamb and used orange and yellow peppers. A time consuming recipe, but worth the wait! Thank you for the recipe.
