There’s not much better than hot stew on a cold day and this Irish Beef Stew is no exception. When we made this there was a sprinkling of snow coming down outside and an icy bite in the air. The stew was perfect. Leeks add a smooth buttery onion taste, they also give a nice green Irish tint to the whole thing perfect for a St. Patrick’s Day dinner. You can buy a beef roast and cut it yourself or buy stew meat from your local grocery store which has pre-cut beef.
The hardest part of the recipe is smelling it while it cooks and not being able to eat it right away.
