If you like Irish stew, this ones a good one!! You can use lamb to be authentic, but I prefer beef.

2 tablespoons olive oil (enough to coat the skillet)
3 bay leaves
2 lbs beef stew meat/lamb cut into 1" chunks
1 large yellow onion, peeled,cut in 1/4's 3 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
1 large potato cut into chunks
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon dried rosemary
2-3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 cup beef stock
1 cup homebrewed Stout or Porter
1 tablespoon parsley, chopped
1/2 lb carrots, sliced
salt and black pepper, freshly ground


4-6 servings
1. Coat the meat with 1/4 cup or so of flour and set aside
2. In an iron skillet or sauce pan add the oil and bay leaves on a stove set to medium high.
3. Cook the bay leaves for 30 sec or so and then add the meat. Brown the meat on all sides until golden brown. Add more olive oil if it becomes too dry.
4. Remove the meat/bay leaves and place in a bowl
5. Add the onion to the skillet and cook for a few minutes until soft. Add a pinch of kosher salt and coursley ground pepper. Add more olive oil if needed.
6. Add the garlic and cook one more minute
7. Dump the meat,bay leaves, onions and garlic into a crockpot (set on low heat) and add the thyme, rosemary and 2-3 tbls flour, stir until well mixed.
8. Add the stout/porter and remaining ingredients stir and cover.
9. Let simmer for at least 4 hours or even all day.
10. Add salt and pepper to taste before serving.
Serve with a big slice of crusty bread topped with roasted garlic and of course your favorite stout or porter.
Enjoy!!

Looks very similar to my 'award winning' Irish stew from last year's Chili/Stew Cook-off at work. I also threw in some pearled barley, and then had to add more stout to compensate for all the liquid the barley soaked up.

I am to receive several pounds of Rocky Mountain Bighorn ewe meat, of which I was a dragger for last month. This recipe will be a good use of that meat.

Patrick,
Barley would make a nice addition. I'll try it next time.

Sounds like the perfect thing for some Elk stew meat I cut up...I do hate to waste beer? But ok.
Chumley, you didn't drag it did you? I carry all my meat anymore.

We drug it maybe 50 yards up a hill. Then we loaded it on an ATV.

Now we know how far you dragged it, but I'm curious how many beers it took you guys?
