Here’s a great, festive recipe to make for St. Patrick’s Day! There’s a ton of great, Irish recipes out there, but Irish stew is my favorite. The traditional Irish stew is fairly simple; made from lamb and a variety of root vegetables such as: potatoes, carrots, onions. 
I found a great recipe online, and I made it this weekend. It was definitely a crowd pleaser. 
The recipe makes about 6 servings; and the leftovers are delicious!
2 pounds meat (use either lamb or boneless chuck roast)
2 large onions, chopped
2 pounds potatoes (cut into big chunks)
1 turnip, chopped
3 stalks of celery, chopped (leaves included)
3 carrots, chopped
2 cups chicken broth
1 bay leaf
Parsley (fresh or dried)
