Stew is a class winter meal at our house. The warm comforting combination makes my meat and potato loving family happy campers. But when it starts getting closer to St. Patrick’s Day, or I’m trying to impress my brother who is obsessed with all things Irish, I start thinking Irish stew.

We use a few cans of Guinness along with our stock to give this the most delicious broth and as an added bonus the beer helps tenderize the meat!

Make a big batch of homemade biscuits to go along side of this or a nice loaf of Irish soda bread and you are set for a warm, hearty dinner for any night or the perfect easy St. Patrick’s day recipe.
