How To Make Rustic Irish Chicken and Cabbage Stew
Combine the beer, 2½ cups of broth, garlic, bay leaves, and thyme. Set aside
Place the onions at the bottom of the crockpot.
On the bed of onions, layer the chicken pieces on top.
Distribute the bacon and mushrooms evenly on top of the chicken.
Pour the beer mixture over the chicken. Cover and cook over high for 3 to 4 hours or on low for 6 to 7 hours
Roughly 2 hours before the stew is ready, add the potatoes and carrots. Add your cabbage roughly 1 hour before the stew is ready. Continue cooking.
Roughly 15 minutes before it is ready to be served, dissolve the flour in the remaining broth. Temporary set aside the chicken, add your slurry into the crockpot while stirring.
Once the starch has been combined, return the chicken, season to taste with salt and pepper, and allow to finish cooking
Serve together with potatoes of your choice, or crusty bread.
