For a basic beef stew recipe, this is very good. I did have to change it though. I tossed the beef in 3 Tbsp. regular flour with lemon pepper, chili powder, and garlic powder. I browned it with a little olive oil. I put it in the crock pot (because I needed my oven for other baking) and it turned out fine. The other change I made was using 1/2 c. V-8 and 1/2 c. bloody mary mix. I thought it would give it a little kick, and it did. In the last about 20 minutes, I added a cup of frozen peas for some color. Along with lots of salt and pepper, it turned out great. This recipe is a great base to build off of and add whatever you like for flavors!



EXCELLENT Irish stew recipe. Very easy to make. The brown sugar it calls for in the recipe does make it a bit sweeter than I like it so I omit the sugar when I make it. Kids LOVE it!!! This will become a family tradition recipe for us! Thank you for sharing it!



Have made this for years. I always used a spicy tomato cocktail drink. Hoppin Tom or spicy V-8 and never used any sugar. Always raves and NEVER any left over. Hardy and delicious and extremely simple. Never had a need to brown meat before hand.Always tender and veggies perfect. NEVER open oven door and peek as heat goes down and takes a long time to raise back up. Just throw in oven and forget it for 5 hours!!
