"Tough Little Nuggets" Irish Stew

"Tough Little Nuggets" Irish Stew

This is an easy recipe based on some past stewing recipes integrating the best parts of each. This is great prepared on the weekend and reheated during those hectic week nights after work. When preparing you do not need to commit to the vegtables mentioned and can add your favorites to this recipe. The name comes from a past phrase used in a recipe for prepping the beef that my daughter found funny.
