More About This Recipe

  • The perfect St. Paddy's Day meal: Irish stew made the easy way -- in your slow cooker! St. Paddy's day always 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. 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. Enjoy with some warm crusty bread!
