With Ireland in the middle of trying to contain the Coronavirus, many of us are working from home. It stands to reason that we’re thinking a lot about food and the meals we’ll prepare as we venture out less than we would usually. From what should be filling our shelves with (without panic buying) and what ingredients will go the farthest in terms of the meals we cook. With this in mind, a stew is ideal. This recipe is tasty and nutritious and you can batch cook and freeze extra portions so you have them to hand (just in case).
