My recipe of the day is for Irish stew with Guinness, made in the slow cooker or crockpot using  lamb as part of the  From Our Dinner Table blogging group,  for which today the theme is about St. Patrick’s Day recipes.

If you’re not a fan  of lamb (and some  people are not) this can  also be  made with  stew beef.

Guinness is also not the only stout ale you can use in this, although it is the most popular  Irish one.  Time was that was mostly all you could get, but the craft beer  movement has really opened that one wide.

There are a variety of root vegetables in this as well, but  don’t stress  if you can’t  find every single one. You can mix and match on the quantities of potatoes, celery root,  parsnips, turnips  and carrots. This is root vegetable rich and you can  use whatever types you like. I also used the larger  boiler onions   (big pearl  onions) but you can just use chopped or wedges  of onion if you like. The round shape is mostly for aesthetics.
