Crockpot Irish Stew

I am in love with my crockpot. If you don’t have one or have never cooked with one I highly recommend it. They save you so much time and make dinner so easy! All you do is throw in all the ingredients and let the crockpot work its magic. This is a crockpot Irish Stew recipe that I love to make for my family. ?

Im not normally a big meat eater but this crockpot Irish Stew is just too yummy to not eat! haha It doesn’t last long with the three boys in our house.

Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1-1/2 pounds lean beef stew meat, cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 2 medium yellow onions, diced
  • 3 large carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped
  • 4 medium Yukon gold potatoes, peeled and chopped into 2-inch piece
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 2 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 4 cups low-sodium beef broth
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 package frozen peas

 

This Crockpot Irish Stew was a favorite of mine growing up and now I love getting to make it for my kids. It’s great for busy days because I can let it cook while I’m out running errands and by the time dinner rolls around, it’s time to eat. Not to mention it fills your house all day with its delicious smell as it cooks!

Directions:

  1. Add all of your ingredients except frozen peas to a large crockpot. If desired, you can brown the meat for about 30 seconds before adding. I’m all about easy so I tend to skip this step and just thrown it all in.
  2. Stir well, secure the lid, and cook on low for 8 to 10 hours or on high for 4 to 5 hours
  3. Just before your stew is done whisk together 1/2 cup of all-purpose flour with 1/2 cup water until the flour is dissolved.
  4. Turn the crock pot to high and add the flour mixture and frozen peas to the stew. Stir well until mixed and cook for about 20 more minutes.
