Traditional Irish Stew With Pearl Barley
150 mins (prep 30, cooking 120)
12 ingredients
4-6 servings
I got this recipe off from my friend's mum when we were in Ireland last year for our summer holidays. It is different from the other recipes I have found here with the addition of pearl barley. The original recipe states to add in the meat and the vegetables all in at once but I find that the veggies get a bit mushy with the long cooking time, so I add in the vegetables during the last hour. So, you could do it either way! I usually serve it with Irish Soda Bread. Here is Ms Happy Farmer's Authentic Irish Soda Bread-Yeast Free which we truly enjoyed!
