Very good! I didn’t brown. I just put the veggies and meat (not peas) in my slow cooker on low for the day. It needed more water because I was leaving it unattended. Everything else I did the same. I will make this again!

Excellent! My father is visiting, I made this stew for him and my two boys. He was incredibly impressed by the complexity of the flavors. They requested I make it again, soon. I don’t eat meat, but cook it for my family I tried a bite without the meat, WOW! I was ready to pour a bowl myself. Incredible! Forgot to pick up a stout beer, used a bottle of Devils Backbone Vienna lager instead.

Yum! Turned out great:)
Delicious dish. The whole family loved it. We will defiantly make this again.

Used a local Oklahoma Stout beer and this dinner turned out to be very tasty. I probably would add more salt next time. Plus I thickened this stew with cornstarch instead off flour and butter

Great comfort food recipe. Substituted vegetable stock for beef, gluten free flour for regular flour and used thin angus minute steak cut into smaller pieces to shorten stewing time. Also added a bit of hot sauce. This recipe is a keeper.

swapped the beef for lamb and loved it!

Beef was tender, veggies and gravy were very tasty.

This is not Irish Stew, it may be a tasty stew but not authentic at all. Irish stew is made with Neck of Lamb, stock and beer, potatoes boiled not mashed, onions and carrots...no peas, no leeks no garlic, no tomato paste

This was delicious! So amazing with the mash potatoes combo. My husband said that it didn’t just hit the spot, it punched it in the face!! Lol
