What is more Irish than Guinness? How about a hearty Irish Beef Stew made with Guinness Stout! Today we feature the famous Guinness Irish Beef Stew to keep you warm and toasty on those chilly fall evenings. Be sure to pick up an extra pint or two of Guinness to serve along with the stew!
We had the opportunity to attend a party at the Guinness StoreHouse with Travel Blog Exchange (TBEX) last week and were totally blown away. The Guinness StoreHouse is a first-class operation and a definite MUST when visiting Dublin. Views of the city from the Gravity Bar are worth the trip alone, but there is so much more to do! Learn to “Pour Your Own Pint of Guinness” and stand inside the World’s Largest Pint Glass – lots of entertainment and drinking Guinness, too!
This is one of the recipes the Guinness chefs recommend. It’s easy to make and the taste is YUM!
Without further ado, I present the recipe for Guinness Irish Beef Stew!
200ml Guinness Extra Stout (please feel free to drink the remainder!)
400g diced stewing beef
1 medium onion – diced
1 large carrot – diced
1 large celery stalk – diced
1 large parsnip – diced
1 liter of thick beef stock
Sprigs of fresh thyme and rosemary
Champ potato (creamed mashed potato and spring onion)
Stir fry the beef, add the vegetables and cook until tender, then pour the Guinness and reduce by half. Add the beef stock and herbs and simmer very slowly for between an hour and an hour and a half. Serve with champ potato and honey roasted carrot and parsnip. Serves 4.
Tip: This stew is always better made a day in advance.
One thing we’ve noticed about these Irish is that they eat hearty, drink hearty and LAUGH hearty…all good things! Hope you enjoy this little taste of Ireland. Slainte! To your good health!
