Irish Stew

  1. Preheat oven to 325º
  2. Cut roast into 4 equal pieces. Season generously with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Heat butter in pan over medium-high heat. Sear beef on all sides (~2 minutes per broad side and ~1 per edge). Remove from pan and set in roasting pan.
  3. Using pan beef was seared in, sauté onion, carrots, parsnips, and celery until they begin to get tender. Add bacon and brown. Add garlic and thyme and cook for 1 minute. Stir in flour and cook for ~1 minute. Stir in beer, beef broth, tomato paste, and bay leaves. Remove from heat.
  4. Pour pan mixture over top of beef in roasting pan. Be sure to place a bit of the veggies on top of the beef. If the liquid does not cover 3/4 of the beef height-wise, then add more beef broth. Tightly cover roasting pan with two layers of foil. Braise in oven for at least 4 hours.
  5. Remove from oven and shred meat. Set aside.


Irish Stew Jus

  1. After roast is done cooking, drain about 1 cup of braising liquid into small pan. Bring liquid to simmer and reduce until desired thickness. Remove from heat and let cool a few minutes.
  2. *If sauce doesn’t thicken enough on its own, create a slurry. In a small container, whisk together cornstarch and water until well integrated. Slowly whisk slurry into braising liquid. Continue simmering until sauce reaches desired thickness. Remove from heat and let cool a few minutes.

  4. Pull dough from all sides up and around filling. Purse dough together then flip roll to lay it pursed side down. Repeat with rest of dough.
