Our Bible Study Class has 'Soup & Study' during Lent & I wanted to make a hearty stew for them. I usually just toss the ingredients in a pot & season it the way I like. This time I had to write everything down because when we finished, the pot was empty & everyone wanted the recipe. Everything is adjusted to your taste, so if there's something you don't like, just leave it out!

How to Make Irish Stew


  • 1Place the meat, carrots & potatoes into a pressure cooker. Add the Guinness Stout. Add beef stock to cover. Secure top properly on cooker.
  • 2Once the cooker is 'rocking', cook for 45 minutes. Place the cooker under cold water to vent steam.
  • 3When the meat & vegetables are done, transfer them to the pot with the celery. Add the peas & bring to a boil.
  • 4Add seasonings to taste.
  • 5If the stew is too thin, mix 1/4 cup flour with cold water & drizzle into stew, stirring constantly until stew thickens.
  • 6Serve in bread bowls or with hot sourdough rolls.
  • 7Refrigerate leftovers. If it gets too thick after cooling & you want to thin it out, add a little beef stock until it is the desired consistency.
