This is one of my favorite dishes to cook, especially when it is cold and you need extra protein and energy.

Here is the recipe for:

Irish Stew

Ingredients:

1.3kg/3 lbs boneless lamb or beef cut into chunks.

(It’s more authentic if you use lamb.)

1.5ml/1 tbsp. of vegetable oil

3 onions

1 lb of carrots

 900 ml/3 3/4 cups water

10 red potatoes quartered

3 nice fresh Thyme sprigs or more to taste

3 tbsp. of butter

1 tbsp. of chopped fresh Italian parsley

salt and pepper to taste

Instructions:

1. Heat oil in large casserole or pot. Brown meat on all sides. Remove.

2. Quarter the onions, and slice the carrots about one inch thick. Cook them in pot for around five minutes until onions start to brown.

3. Return meat to pot with water, reduce heat, and simmer for one hour.

4. Add potatoes to pot with Thyme and cook one hour longer.

5. Turn stew off and let settle for ten minutes. Stir in butter.

6. Serve into bowls and top with fresh chopped parsley.

Enjoy!
