Oren Kirschenbaum says:

Correct me if I’m wrong but traditional Irish stew was never made with Rapeseed or even olive oil – in many rural places those oils were not imported till recently. Tallow, Lard or butter were used and they all taste million times better than any oil. I don’t know why so many chefs nowdays use odourless oils instead of those natural beefy nutty fats that are bursting of flavour and aroma and will instantly infuse anything you cook in them – veggies or meats. Try it and see for yourself, you will not be disappointed. Moreover – you would make your grandma proud of you! 😉

vanschpunk says:

Worst version of Irish Stew i have ever seen!!! I know its “your take” on it, but the whole point in stewing, is the spuds going slightly mush and soaking in the broth. Not doing the spuds seperately and then putting the pot in an oven to roast/bake!! Poor effort man. And i am actually a huge fan of 99.9% of your videos. This is a downmarker im afraid.

Tachyons says:

Talk less and just cook!

This looks very nice, but to call it an Irish stew is just wrong.
