My son came over to share St Patty's Day dinner with me and we truly loved this delicious stew! The broth was so delicious and the meat was so tender. The veggies picked up the flavor of the broth and the marjoram gave it such a nice flavor.

I placed all the ingredients listed in a crock-pot and cooked this on low setting for 4 hours and on high setting for 2 hours and all turned out prefectly. Soooo tasty and easy. Thanks for sharing your lovely recipe. Made for the Recipebook Tag Game.
