About the Dish:
Irish stew is a traditional dish of Ireland that is made with lamb or beef, potatoes, onions, and carrots. It is a hearty and comforting dish that has been enjoyed for generations. The meat is typically browned and then simmered with the vegetables and broth until everything is tender and flavorful. The stew is often seasoned with herbs such as thyme and bay leaves to add depth of flavor. It is a perfect dish for a cold winter’s day and is often served with crusty bread to soak up the delicious broth.

- Step 1: Start by browning the meat in a large pot over medium heat. This will help to develop flavor and create a nice crust on the meat. Remove the meat from the pot and set it aside.
- Step 2: In the same pot, add the onions and cook until they become translucent. Add the carrots and potatoes to the pot and sauté for a few minutes to soften them slightly.
- Step 3: Return the meat to the pot and add enough beef or vegetable broth to cover everything. Season with salt, pepper, thyme, and bay leaves. Cover the pot and simmer for about 2 hours, or until the meat is tender and the flavors have melded together.
- Step 4: Serve the Irish stew hot with crusty bread on the side. Enjoy!
