In the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day, I’m sharing an exceptionally comforting Irish meal! I blended a delicious hearty beef stew and baked it into a pretty pot pie. The beef is incredibly tender and served with a beautifully latticed and shamrock decorated crusty pie. It’s an ideal cool-weather meal and perfect for any Irish holiday. Consider this a lucky pot pie meal! Enjoy!?
