How to Make Slow Cooker Irish Stew

As prepared by Girl Who Ate Everything,

The perfect St. Patty's Day meal: Irish stew made the easy way -- in your slow cooker!


St. Patty's day is around the corner and it has me thinking about all things green and Irish.

This Slow Cooker Irish Stew  isn't green, but it has the simple comforting ingredients that make a savory Irish stew. It's one of those recipes that you can prepare in the morning and then forget about all day until you come home to a delicious aroma in your kitchen.

You want to start with either lamb or beef cubes of meat. I think in a true Irish stew you want to use lamb, but I used beef here because it's what I preferred. The secret to bringing out the flavor in the meat is to toss it with a little flour and brown it in some olive oil to sear the edges before putting it in your slow cooker.

 

Green Giant Honey-Glazed Carrots

Add some diced potatoes, carrots, and onions to your slow cooker. I like to use the Green Giant Honey Glazed Carrots in this dish for a little added sweetness.

 

Add veggies and meat to the slow cooker.

Place your seared meat on top of the vegetables. The potatoes are going to take the longest to cook so I always make sure I put them on the bottom, closest to the heat. I know it doesn't look pretty here, but after cooking all day it turns into a delicious stew.

 

Progresso Beef Broth

Add some beef broth, tomato paste, and seasonings over the top and let the slow cooker work its magic.

I love that this meal only takes twenty minutes in the morning to prepare -- and at the end of the day, you have a warm comforting meal your whole family can cozy up to.

 

Serve Irish stew with crusty bread.

Enjoy with some warm crusty bread!
