Now on to today’s Fiesta Friday contribution! Irish Stew is one of the very first dishes I make every year when it starts to get a little chilly in the fall. This is a stew we made at our restaurant many years ago and one that I still make at home today. It is more simple than our restaurant version because I use a condensed consume instead of making a demi-glace that would take 2 – 3 days to make, but it is perfect for my home version.

Irish Stew
1 lb beef stew meat
1 lb sausage
2 lamb shanks
2 onions diced
2 can consume
1 bunch thyme
1 bunch parsley
1 bunch chives
3 bay leaves
1 tbs salt & 1/2 tsp pepper
3 carrots diced
1 cup water

Heat the oven to 375°F. Place everything in a roasting pan. Cook for 4 1/4 hrs . Keep covered. Break the lamb meat away from the bone and replace in the stew. Serve with mashed potatoes… So delicious…
