Irish stew and Guinness washed down with a glass of Blackbushe whisky, all probably illegal in Switzerland. :D

BEEF AND GUINNESS STEW
Beef & vegetables braised in Guinness, potatoes & aromatic fresh herbs.

Do you think that would be ok?

Hi,

Having had Irish Grandparents I always loved me nan's boiled gammon ham with colcannon (cabbage and potato) but probably a bit boring. Did find this recipe with a twist though...

I'm not a great fan of proper Irish Stew as not a massive lamb fan but BEEF AND GUINNESS STEW is turning me on. I  think I'll give it a go myself on Saturday.

Have a great Weekend and remember to drink too much. It's the law over there.

Slainte, weave  :beers::beers:

Ireland is also famous for salmon, and oysters.

Whatever you choose remember "a meal isn't a meal in Ireland without potatoes".

Bon appetit,


Joe

Slight variation on the above - Bacon and Cabbage. A bacon joint, sliced, with a serving of boiled cabbage, mashed potatoes, all covered in a parsley sauce. Wash it down with a glass of Guinness. (Save the single Malt until the guests have gone home!  ;)). I enjoy it and am a Yorkshireman living in Ireland for nigh on 20 years).

I used to be indecisive - now I'm not - I don't think.

There's a reason that while you find Irish pubs all over the world and Irish music everywhere you look it's rather harder to find an Irish restaurant 8)

If they are anything like my Irish friends, the correct option is whatever you would normally eat...

The majority hate the forced, fake "Irishness" that pervades so many English establishments for a week either side of St P's...

except.......

the best three places to stuff my face with all good things from the sea here in the metropolis are Irish.

Wrights Oyster Bar, The Cow, and The Bentley , though at The Bentley one could easily eat a Tomix shinkansen's worth of shellfish- probably with an add on 4 car set too!!
running in is so you get used to the noise, oops, to bed the gears down properly
