original irish stew recipe

Irish Stew Recipe:


1. 2 lbs. lamb shoulder, cut into chunks

2. 4 large potatoes, peeled and sliced

3. 4 large carrots, peeled and sliced

4. 2 large onions, chopped

5. 3 cups beef or chicken broth

6. 2 tbsp. vegetable oil

7. 2 tbsp. all-purpose flour

8. 1 tsp. dried thyme

9. Salt and pepper, to taste


1.Brown the lamb: In a large, oven-safe pot or Dutch oven, heat the vegetable oil over medium heat. Add the lamb and brown on all sides, about 8-10 minutes. Remove the lamb from the pot and set it aside.

2. Cook the onions: Add the onions to the pot and cook until they are translucent, about 5-7 minutes.

3. Add flour and broth: Sprinkle the flour over the onions and stir to combine. Gradually pour in the broth, stirring constantly to prevent lumps from forming.

4. Add lamb and vegetables: Add the lamb back to the pot, along with the potatoes, carrots, thyme, salt, and pepper.

5. Bring to a boil: Bring the stew to a boil.

6. Cook in the oven: Cover the pot with a lid and transfer it to the preheated oven. Bake for 2-2.5 hours, or until the lamb is tender and the vegetables are cooked through.

7. Let cool and serve: Remove the pot from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes before serving. Serve the Irish stew hot, garnished with fresh parsley or thyme, if desired.

This recipe serves 6-8 people.

Enjoy your delicious, hearty Irish stew!
