Scalese89 saidIrish Stew is amazing slow cooked. It's tender and healthy. I especially love having this meal in the winter. Now I'm hungry
Stew or soup, I totally agree. I persuaded my late Italian partner to attempt making it, based on my vague memories. By then my mother was also dead, who could make it, too, after her Irish mother died. He did a really good job.
But my current Italian partner still hasn't tried. He only wants to do Italian cooking. I can't cook at all myself. I would think that using a modern electric crock pot, which my family didn't have back in the 1950s, would make it even better.
Because from what I remember as a kid, an important element was simmering for days. Each ingredient added one at time, depending on the ideal cooking time.
