This recipe for Irish Stew was inspired by the Hallmark movie, “As Luck Would Have it!” This Hallmark original took place and was filmed in the green hills of Ireland in a lovely small town. During a scene where the main character, Lindsay was learning to cook like a native, this recipe was the star of the show! It looked so hearty and delicious with all the potatoes, carrots and Irish essence that I just HAD to try it! I of course added my own touches and some dark stout beer. This recipe calls for beef but you could also add lamb.
