Guinness Beef Stew Recipe

Guinness Beef Stew For St Patricks Day

Beef stew is a regular dinner in our home because it is just so filling and hearty, especially on a cold winter’s day. I usually stick to my regular crockpot beef stew recipe, but at this time of year, my husband will have Guinness in the house and I will grab a bottle to make this Guinness Beef Stew.

The addition of Guinness gives this beef stew and much earthier flavor and more depth to the stew. I usually like to whip up a loaf of my homemade beer bread whenever I am making soup, but for this one, I usually stick to making a loaf of my homemade Irish Soda Bread (although honestly, my children prefer the beer bread!).

Anyway – to make this Guinness Beef Stew, you will need at least 4 hours and the following:

Guinness Beef Stew For St Patricks Day ingredients

  • 1 1/2 lb Beef Chuck cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1/2 cup Flour
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Black Pepper
  • 1/4 cup Vegetable Oil
  • 2 tsp minced Garlic
  • 3 cup Beef Stock
  • 1 bottle Guinness Extra Stout
  • 1/2 can Tomato Paste
  • 2 tbsp Brown Sugar
  • 1/4 tsp dried Thyme
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
  • 2 pounds small Red Potatoes, quartered
  • 1 Onion, chopped
  • 1 lb Carrots, chopped
  • 1 Bay Leaf

Making it is pretty easy!
