Irish Stew Slow Cooker Recipe
Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Swap out the green beer for something a bit more traditional, like this Irish soup! Or… drink the green beer with the stew? You do you! Traditional Irish stew is made with mutton or lamb. I chose to go with chuck stew meat as it was a little easier on the pocket and tastes delicious. I also threw in a little Guinness for good measure as it adds to the savory flavor of this dish. Enjoy this recipe for St. Patrick’s Day and all year long!

Guinness Irish Soup
GUINNESS BEEF STEW
Check the stew 30 minutes before serving to see if you need to add any extra seasoning.
Brown the meat before throwing it in the crock pot as this enhances the flavor of the meat.
Cut the carrots and potatoes into large chunks to prevent them from turning into mush. Here we halved our golden baby potatoes and kept our carrots in 1 inch slices.
Like a more gravy like stew? Reduce the beef broth from 4 cups to 3 cups. Also increase the flour from 2 tbsp to 3 tbsp (or more if you like it extra thick). This will create a thicker gravy-like stew :-)
