Our first recipe this month is in honor of St. Patrick's Day - Special Irish Beef Stew. Then for those of you who are not feeling up for a pot of gold, we have a tasty Green Chili Stew.

Special Irish Beef Stew

Ready in: 1 hr 20 min
Serves: 6

2 teaspoons vegetable oil
1 pound lean beef stew meat
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 small onion, chopped
2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
6 cloves garlic, minced
1 (6 ounce) can tomato paste
2 cups beef broth
1 (12 fluid ounce) can or bottle Irish stout beer
4 cups sliced carrots
2 large potatoes, peeled and diced
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 tablespoon cold water
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley

Prepare in a Dutch oven or large pot over medium-high heat. Coat beef cubes with flour, shaking off the excess. Fry beef cubes until browned on all sides. Remove from the pot. Add the onion, mushrooms, and garlic to the pot, and cook stirring constantly until onion is tender, about 3 minutes.

Return beef to the pot, and stir in tomato paste, beef broth, and beer. Add potatoes and carrots, cover, and simmer over low heat for about 1 hour. Mix together the cornstarch and cold water. Stir into the stew, and simmer until thickened. Sprinkle with parsley and serve.

May you be rich in blessings, poor in misfortune,
Slow to make enemies, quick to make friends.
But rich or poor, slow or quick,
May you know nothing but happiness from this day forward.
