Directions

  1. This should be a good, slow-cooked mutton (or lamb) stew with potatoes, onions and other root vegetables like carrot and parsnip.


  2. Add a handful of parsley, too.


  3. Boil then simmer the mutton for about an hour on its own first and skim off where there is too much fat.


  4. Then add the chopped veg and cook on a low heat for one to two hours – the longer the better so long as there’s still plenty of stock.


  5. You can brown the meat first if you want, but traditional stew would have boiled meat in.


  6. Where some chicken casseroles use a little red or white wine as part of the stock, some people like to add Guinness or another Irish stout to an Irish beef stew.

If stewing the meat (beef is the choice in my house) and veg separately from lovely buttery mashed floury spuds, stout or red wine sets off the taste of the beef and helps the taste, makes a nice change from the all-in-one pot stew. I think that's what is meant. Pearl barley and spuds I can't see working, but each to their own, and I hate the stuff so I'm biased :)x

I would always add pearl barley to an Irish Stew. Guinness is never added to Irish Stew, only to a beef stew.

Your recipes do not have quantities on, Why? I can't see how a recipe can serve 5 with no measures to the ingredients.
