This savory Irish Beef Stew with Garlic Mashed Potatoes is a family favorite dinner - slow cooked tender beef, tender carrots and sweet peas over smooth garlic mashed potatoes - comfort food at its best, and not just for St. Patrick's Day!
Tender sweet carrots and peas make this as beautiful as it is delicious! And if you want a change of pace, you can make Garlic Smashed Potatoes rather than buttery smooth mashed potatoes - either way the potatoes and fresh garlic are boiled until tender, but for SMASHED, you don't need to peel your red potatoes at all. A real time saver, and just as delicious!
All you'll need is a warm loaf or two of our Herbed Cheese & Beer Bread and a pint of icy cold Irish stout, and dinner will be perfect!
The St. Patrick's Day Parade is a REAL big deal around here....but coming home to a warm, delicious Irish Beef Stew with Garlic Mashed Potatoes just fills my senses!
And like many stews, if you are lucky enough to have any leftovers, it tastes even BETTER the next day for lunch! Hope that your tummy loves this as much as we do!
