Grandma’s Irish Stew for St. Patrick’s Day!

 

When we think about St. Patrick’s Day we usually think about Corned Beef and Cabbage and Green Beers! But, if you’re not necessarily a fan of cabbage (it is awfully smelly!) a traditional (my grandmother’s traditional) Irish Beef Stew can be a great way to enjoy the holiday with your friends and family. It’s delicious, hearty, and goes well with a Guinness and some Irish Soda Bread and creamy Irish Butter.  So put on your apron, break out the cutlery and cast iron pots, it’s time to get to cooking! (just a note, this recipe makes about 4 good size servings, so you can double or triple depending on the size of your family or the number of guests! You’ll just need bigger pots and pans.)

Here are the main ingredients you’ll need for your Irish Stew:

  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 pounds beef stew meat (or you can use lamb) cut into chunky pieces
  • 2-3 tablespoons of garlic powder (or to taste) or the equivalent in fresh garlic
  • 6 cups beef stock (unsalted is fine)
  • 2 pints of Guinness beer (1 for the stew and 1 for the chef, seriously, this is hard work!)
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 small can of tomato paste
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon dried thyme (and I think a little marjoram as well, a couple of teaspoons)
  • 2-3 bay leaves (I don’t know what these are for, but Grandma always put them in her stews and soups)
  • 2-3 tablespoons Irish butter
  • 4 pounds of small golden or red potatoes  (she preferred them unpeeled, but it’s up to you, personally, I prefer the peel on)
  • 1 large White or Yellow onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cups baby carrots
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • 2-3 tablespoons parsley
  • 2-3 shots of Jameson’s Irish Whiskey

Heat the vegetable oil in a heavy large pot over medium-high heat. Toss a little salt and pepper with the meat pieces and make sure you brown the pieces on all sides, this should take about 5-7 minutes.  Add beef stock, Guinness (just 1 pint), sugar, thyme, marjoram, garlic powder, Worcestershire sauce and bay leaves. Stir thoroughly. By now you’re probably thirsty, so it’s time to take a sip or two of your Guinness. Bring the pot to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low, cover and simmer 1 hour, stirring as needed. Take  another sip of Guinness (repeat as necessary.)

In another large pan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add your potatoes, onions and carrots and saute them until tender and a little brown on the edges, this should take about 20-30 minutes,  add them to the beef stew when it’s ready (after about an hour, remember?) Now, simmer uncovered about 35-45 minutes or until everything is nice and tender. Finish up your pint, toss out the bay leaves, add a little more salt and pepper to taste (I always go a little heavy on the pepper, but your choice!),  sprinkle with parsley and serve with a pint of Guinness and some crusty bread and creamy Irish butter!

I never did figure out what the shots of Jameson’s were for, but they were always gone when Grandma was done cooking.   Must be a chef’s secret.  So with or without the Jameson’s,  give granny’s recipe a try and have a Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Save Your Holiday Dignity

 

It’s time for holiday baking and cooking again! I start early and cook a lot. We all like a lot of good food during the holidays and my kitchen gets a workout! I started looking around to see if I have enough chip clips for all the open bags of chips that will find their way into my cabinet, enough measuring cups (somehow mine always get commandeered for other things and never replaced), and jar openers. These are important to me because every year I’m bound and determined that I’m not going to ask my husband to open the stubborn jars when I’m preparing Christmas meals……it’s just personal. So I end up in the kitchen muttering at the jars under my breath and smacking, tapping, and grunting at the jars. It would be so much easier for my 5 foot 3 inch, buck o’ five weighing self if someone would just get me some jar openers and be done with it. I would never again have to hear, “Do you need some help with that?”

Promotional chip clips have a variety of styles and uses….(pretty sure I used one once to keep my daughter’s hair out of her oatmeal when she was little). Custom measuring cups are long lasting products that everyone needs in their kitchen no matter how much or how little they cook. And promotional jar openers will have women everywhere thanking your business for saving their dignity. It is time to invest in your business for the new year. Advertising done now will increase business in the new year!

Start a Revolution!

 
Custom Christmas OrnamentsEvery year churches, schools, teams and businesses do fundraisers to try and make it through another year of activities. I personally have more fundraiser wrapping paper and cookie dough than I can possibly use in a year. And don’t get me started on those chocolate bars that I buy that are $2 but add 10 lbs. to my hips with every bite. I’m thinking it’s time for a Christmas revolution! Why not sell something easy to get and personalized for your church, business, or school? Personalized Christmas ornaments come in so many different varieties it gets you in the holiday spirit just looking at them. People can always use ornaments but we do not need any more cookie dough or wrapping paper!
Custom Christmas ornaments can also be great corporate gifts. This is a great way to thank your employees for their service during the year without breaking the bank. Giving a personalized Christmas ornament would also be a great gift with purchase that would keep your business’ name on the top of consumer’s Christmas shopping list. Everybody loves a freebie. Please help end the wrapping paper, chocolate bar, cookie dough insanity….start a revolution!
