Beer Recipes » Main dishes » Weight Watcher"s Irish Stew
Relevant beer types:  Ale


1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
1-1/2 pounds lean boneless lamb, cut into 1-1/2-inch squares 1/2-inch thick (or boneless chuck)
1 medium onion, chopped
3 cups low sodium chicken broth
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme, crumbled
1 bay leaf
6 whole new red potatoes (5 ounces each)
15 ounces small onions, peeled
1 cup Irish ale or beer
1 teaspoon salt
2 Tablespoon cornstarch
Chopped parsley
6 slices Italian bread (1 ounce each), optional


In a large heavy saucepan, heat 1/2 of the oil. Add 1/2 of the lamb or beef and cook until well browned on one side, 5-7 minutes. Stir and cook 1 minute longer; remove meat and set aside.

Add the remaining oil, the lamb (or beef), and the chopped onion to the pan and cook until browned, about 8 to 10 minutes. Return the first batch of meat to the pan.

Add broth and bring to a boil over medium heat. Add thyme and bay leaf; lower heat to low, and simmer for 1 hour.

Add potatoes, onions, ale, and salt. Cover and simmer until potatoes are tender, 30 to 40 minutes.

To thicken stew, add cornstarch to 1/4 cup cold water in a small bowl; stir until smooth. Add to simmering stew; stir gently until thickened. Garnish with parsley. Serve Irish stew with bread, if desired.
