Traditional Irish Beef Stew


  • 2 pounds beef chuck roast, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 cups beef broth
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 4 large potatoes, peeled and chopped
  • 4 large carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped
  • Chopped fresh parsley, for garnish (optional)


  1. In a bowl, mix the flour, salt, and black pepper together. Add the beef and toss to coat.
  2. In a large pot or Dutch oven over medium-high heat, add the olive oil. Once hot, add the beef and cook until browned on all sides. Remove the beef from the pot and set aside.
  3. Add the onion and garlic to the pot and sauté until the onion is translucent, about 5 minutes.
  4. Add the beef broth, water, bay leaves, thyme, and rosemary to the pot. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce heat and let simmer for 1 hour.
  5. Add the potatoes, carrots, and celery to the pot. Return the beef to the pot as well. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce heat and let simmer for an additional hour, or until the beef is tender and the vegetables are cooked through.
  6. Remove the bay leaves and discard them.
  7. Serve hot, garnished with chopped fresh parsley, if desired.

Enjoy your traditional Irish beef stew!
