Irish Stew for a Simple Irish Dinner
Typically, my husband is the master of the stew domain. However, I decided to play with making one.
Many Irish Stew recipes call for chunks of lamb. As I’m in the midst of a spending fast this Lent (especially for groceries), I had to make due with some beef stew cubes instead.
I’d seen a recipe for one in my copy of Not Your Mother’s Slowcooker Cookbook which uses the Crockpot. I thought it would be perfect as dinner would be ready when we were and no last minute rush would be needed.
However, I forgot to get my ingredients prepped and instead shifted to the large pressure cooker.
I’ll note how to make it using either method in the recipe.
While a crock pot has flavors melding together as things cook over time, when you pressure cook the ingredients still maintain their individual flavors.

Recipe for Irish Stew
A perfect compliment for this Irish Stew is a round loaf of Irish Soda bread.
