Did you like the look of the Irish lamb stew from the St Patrick’s Day dinner party post?
Unlike a lot of recipes that you will see, traditional Irish lamb stew would not have had alcohol added to it. It was a peasant’s dish and they certainly would not have “wasted” their alcohol in food.
It doesn’t hurt however to have a nice glass of Guinness to accompany the stew!
Irish stew used to traditionally be made with mutton, but it is now more commonly made with lamb. Mutton would have been used because due to it’s age it would have had no use other than for food. Remember it was a peasant’s dish!
The ingredients are basic, and the recipe is incredibly easy. This makes it the prefect dish for a dinner party even if it wasn’t St Patrick’s Day!
Despite all that, it is very tasty and must be tried if you have not done so already.
Accompany the Irish stew with some soda bread and ……yum! Total deliciousness. Is there seriously anything better than dipping some freshly made bread into a hot, hearty stew? Nope…didn’t think so!
