My husband is close to half Irish with his mom being a red head with the last name Fitzgerald! My husband and son are proud of their Irish blood, so I like to make traditional recipes for them. Especially on St. Patrick’s Day. This Irish Stew is made with simple ingredients plus dark, rich Guinness beer. It is a stew that is delicious, hearty and healthy. It can be served in a bowl or on a plate. I recommend that you serve it with some thick, dense bread to soak up the broth. Here is how you can make this recipe for St. Patrick’s Day or any day!
