Baked Irish Stew

Vickie Parks


This recipe offers another way of preparing traditional Irish Stew. The baking seems to give it a richer gravy than stove-top cooking. It's really good anyway, and it goes together quite quickly so it's a good option for busy afternoons when you don't have a lot of time to spend on dinner preparations. Serve it with a fresh loaf of Irish Brown Bread or warmed dinner rolls to soak up the wonderful, rich gravy.
