This is not a real Traditional Irish Stew Recipe. It may be a stew recipe but as an Irish Woman who has lived for almost 40 years in Ireland. I was taught by mother who had been making it for 48 years. This recipe is Not Traditionally Irish Stew. Traditional Irish stew is not made with oil, bay leaves, basil, lamb or brown sugar. The recipe above is a lamb stew not a Traditional Irish Stew which has mince balls, carrots or parsnips, potatoes, Onions,Beef or Vegetable OXO,just cover the ingredients with water. Everything in a pot on a high heat, bring to the boil, lower the heat and simmer for 25 to 30 minutes. Then serve. There is no wine in Traditional Irish Stew of course wine is part of Traditional English Lamb Stew which is a slow cook recipe. Also soda bread is a part of an Irish Fry. Its not something that would be eaten with a stew - 25 May 2015
