Directions

Remove the meat from the bone, trim off all the fat, and cut into chunky cubes.

Keep the bones, place the meat in a pot, and cover with cold salted water. Bring to the boil and drain.

In a fresh pot, put the meat, bones, bouquet of herbs, onions, salt, pepper, carrots, leeks, and turnip and cover with water. Simmer gently for one hour.

Irish Stew Shopping Tip

As an alternative to sugary, salty, processed foods, try shopping for fruits and vegetables that are in season.

Irish Stew Cooking Tip

For a healthier alternative, substitute honey or molasses for sugar in baking recipes, and use a 3:1 blend of canola oil to olive oil instead of butter when cooking over the flame.
