Found this recipe ten years ago on an internet search for "Irish Stew" and it has become a St. Patrick's Day and cold-weather favorite at our house. I make it with beef and red wine, and the finished product is always savory and filling. Have some Irish soda bread or crusty French bread on hand to soak up the broth - the "sopping" (as we say in the South) potential with this one is outstanding! Erin go Bragh, ya'll!
YUM!! a delicious rich stew for St Patrick's day. very flavourful, I used beef and a lovely local merlot wine and rather than a bouquet garni I just put the herbs in the sauce, The tabasco was a nice touch. There was so much sauce that I added some frozen peas and corn, turned out a lovely meal. Thanks for posting I will make it again.
