      This recipe is similar to the Old New Orleans Irish Stew that I have made many, many times for my family.The difference is that the meat was seasoned, then dusted with flour.I also added i chopped bell pepper with onion and celery to the pot with meat drippings and sauteed them before adding any liquid.Cornstarch was added if needed to thicken.Otherwise the recipe was a beginning for stew. The taste was very good either way. Cooking time was the same. Sometimes I added diced potatoes and carrots to give the stew more body.

      Everyone I make this recipe for raves and raves... It is awsome. I do Italianize it a little. A change a few things. I dont add water, I add beef broth, dont add sugar or celery. I dont do the cornstarch thing either. When it is done cooking I add potato gnocchi to turn it into meat and potatos. This recipe gets the highest raitings in my house.

      I made this stew when visiting my parents. We all loved it! Great recipe. My dad is specifically asking me to make it again the next time I visit. My mom even went back for seconds and that is a rare thing.
