My favorite one-pot-meal is Irish stew. Irish Lamb Stew is nutritious, delicious and requires less than 30 minutes to prep. This hearty recipe served with Irish soda bread is perfect for your company too. I use a dutch oven like this one to cook this stew.

Homemade Irish Stew

Cozy hearty comfort food. I love this recipe any time of the year. However, St. Patrick's Day would not be complete without Irish Lamb Stew.

Natural Lamb

I selected a lamb roast and asked the butcher to trim off the fat and cut it into stew meat. This is a huge time saver plus you get leaner stew meat. All natural lamb is the best!

Vegetables, stock, tomato paste and Gunniess

Fresh organic vegetables, beef broth, tomato paste and Guinness. Wholesome ingredients for a healthy stew your family will enjoy.

Serve stew with Irish soda bread

Serve Irish soda bread with a soft buttery middle and a golden brown top sprinkled with kosher salt for the perfect St. Pat's dinner.
