There’s A Reason The Irish Are So Lucky … They Have Irish Stew

No dish says St. Patrick’s Day like a pot full of delicious chuck beef with roasted potatoes and a host of completely delicious ingredients. This gluten free Irish Stew is made possible with the help of some tasty gluten free stout, many varieties of which can be found if you look hard enough, but in the absence of stout even a red beer or dark ale will do … although nothing can beat the true bitter appeal of that lovely  dark stout draught. Invite friends to share in this delicious gluten free St. Paddy’s Day delight, slainte!
