One all-time best comfort foods is a hearty stew and with St. Patrick’s Day coming up, what better time to make this delicious dish? Try this Irish Stew recipe this St. Patrick’s Day. It is easy, filling, and yummy!
3 pounds lamb shoulder or beef cut in 2-inch chunks
Salt and pepper
4 tablespoons vegetable oil
6 medium onions, cut in wedges
6 medium carrots, cut in 3-inch lengths
4 cups chicken or beef broth (or water)
1 large sprig thyme
12 small russet potatoes, peeled and halved, or cut in 2-inch thick slices
Pat meat dry and season well with salt and pepper. Put oil in a heavy-bottomed soup pot over medium-high heat. Brown meat on all sides, working in batches if needed.
Set meat aside and add onions and carrots to pot. Season with salt and pepper. Cook vegetables, stirring, until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Heat oven to 350 degrees.
Return meat to pot, add broth and bring to a simmer. Put in thyme sprig and arrange potatoes on top (it’s fine if potatoes are not completely submerged). Season potatoes, cover pot and transfer to oven.
Bake for about 1 hour, until meat is tender. Remove fat from top of broth. Ladle stew into shallow bowls and serve.
