RTE has been running a series on the different kinds of meat in Irish cuisine for the last couple of years.
It’s time we took a closer look at the meat on offer here, with a focus on the Irish style of cooking.
There are three main types of beef on offer in Irish restaurants and they are: ground beef, beef liver, and mutton.
The latter is the most popular, with beef liver being the mainstay in most Irish restaurants.
A few popular Irish restaurants also sell lamb, mutton and pork, although beef liver is the more common meat.
Some popular Irish dishes include the stew of the day, the mutton stew, and the fish and chips of the week.
Here’s what you need to know about each.
Ground beef: Irish ground beef is the main meat on most Irish menus.
It is typically made with a combination of ground beef and lean cuts of beef.
These can range from ground lamb, ground mutton, or ground beef with ground pork.
You can also buy ground beef for soups and stews.
You will find a number of different varieties of Irish ground meat, including smoked, roasted and fried.
