Hola, all - This weekend I'm looking to make a hearty Irish-style stew and some bread to compliment (already got plenty of delicious stout to go with it!) I looked around at a bunch of recipes on the internet and got some that look good, but I figured I'd see if you all have anything that is tried and true and delicious (as most stuff posted here seems to be!). I don't necessarily need something totally authentic, just a nice hearty stew with beef, onions, potatoes, carrots, etc. I'd love to use lamb for authenticity, but it's a little harder to find/more expensive than a nice chunk of beef.
Also, anyone have anything good for soda bread or similar?
Finally finished paramedic school and would like to reward myself with a delicious stew now that I have some free time (gasp!) to devote to it!
