Crockpot Irish Stew

Crockpot Irish Stew served in a white bowlTwo days left until St. Patrick’s Day, and I have another EASY recipe for you to try out.  Crockpot Irish Stew!

I found a couple stews online for St. Patrick’s Day, involving potatoes and cabbage. I really wanted to make this stew last night and didn’t have those things on hand, so I decided to tweak a couple ingredients and came up with this beauty.

My pour veggie Darryl was left out of this dinner, but the girls and I LOVED it. I chopped up the veggies the night before, and then in the morning, dumped everything into the crockpot, and pushed GO! So very simple!

Hope you enjoy this yummy Crockpot Irish Stew !

    hi, i was wondering if you could do this in a pressure cooker too, or if it would only work with the slow cooker. thanks!!

    1. Alejandra, I have never tried it in a pressure cooker. However, I have used a pressure cooker to speed things up for other crockpot meals. If you try it, PLEASE let me know if the pressure cooker works out… because that would be amazing! XO
