Stock (for My Irish Stew)

For best results Irish Stew should always be made using your own home made stock. Here is a really simple recipe for making this yourself.


Basically its a case of adding everything to the pot and letting it simmer and reduce for a couple of hours.

1. Take the bones and trimmings from the lamb shoulder used in the Irish Stew recipe. Add to the pot.

2. Add coursely chopped carrots, onions and celery to the pot.

3. Chop garlic and add to the pot along with salt and pepper to taste.

4. Add water and bring to the boil.

5. Reduce to a simmer and leave on a very low heat for a couple of hours.

6. Remove from heat, allow to cool a little and sieve to leave only the juice.

7. When cool leave overnight in the fridge.

8. Before using remove any fat (which should have floated to the surface and be easy to take away).

9. You are now left with the perfect stock for your Irish Stew.

10. Enjoy.
