This simple Irish stew is made with tender lamb, carrots and potatoes that simmer in Guinness beer and water. As the stew simmers the flavors develop creating a rich and flavorful stew that tastes even better a day after it’s made.
If you prefer to use beef you will need to let the stew simmer longer (up to two hours). You may also need to add more water or beer.
If you make the stew ahead it may thicken up as it sits in the refridgerator. To warm it up, simmer it in a pot on the stove and add a few splashes of water (or more beer) to loosen it up.
