How To Cook Irish Beef Stew

To cook Irish beef stew, you’ll want to cut the beef into pieces. In addition to cutting the beef, you’ll also cut the vegetables down into bite-size pieces.

What Kind Of Beef

Chuck roast is the best kind of beef for this meal. When cooked slowly, it will become very tender and work excellently in your stew. 

It’s essential not to leave the chuck roast whole, it won’t cook evenly if you do.


The vegetables in this dish are simple and easy to find at your grocer. We’re using carrots, potatoes, onion, celery, bell peppers and mushrooms. These are traditional ingredients and add the flavors and textures you’re looking for.

Beef Broth

When using beef broth in this recipe, you can opt for the low-sodium type. This is great if you’re looking to reduce salt in your diet. The sodium in beef broth does bring the flavors up a notch.

However, if you do use a lower sodium broth, you won’t be missing out on much. All of the other flavors in this recipe will surely give you a delicious meal!
