Everyone loves to dress up green and kiss and pinch on St. Patrick’s Day. However, many of us don’t know that it’s not really traditional to do that in Ireland. Most don’t even eat corned beef on that day. That being said I’d like to bring you a soup a friend taught me that her friend from Ireland passed to her. We have converted the Irish Beer Stew recipe to make in the instant pot or pressure cooker.
When we have those chilly nights in spring this certainly is one tasty soup to put in the instant pot. It cooks in 35 minutes which is an additional plus. I like to put everything in the instant pot the day before and pop it in the fridge. I just pull it out and set it in my pressure cooker and set it to go. Then by the time I am finished with evening chores, work, or whatever else needs to be done it’s ready.
More free time for the later evenings to spend with family. This Irish Beer Stew is an easy one to make for St. Patrick’s Day. No funky dyes or wear green beers. We do have beer in this stew but most of the alcohol cooks off. It’s just really about the flavor. Guinness is just that in this Irish Beer Stew.
