Irish Stew

4-5 Potatoes Cubed
2-3 Carrots Sliced
1-2 Parsnips Sliced
Handful Pickling Onions peeled and halved (or 2 regular white onions)
250g Mince Beef
Beef Stock Cube/stock pot
Gravy powder
  1. Brown off the minced beef in a frying pan. This only takes a few moments. Add the meat into a large saucepan.
  2. Add the potatoes, carrots, parsnips and onions to the saucepan along with the meat. Cover with water and add the beef stock cube or stock pot.
  3. Bring to the boil. Simmer and cook for 30-40 mins until the vegetables and potatoes are cooked through.
  4. Thicken up with the gravy powder.
  5. Served with brown sauce and crusty bread.
You could also add in a can of Guinness if you wanted before thickening – it gives the stew a delicious depth.
