Guinness Beef Stew is a hearty stew with melt in your mouth tender beef and vegetables braised in Guinness Stout! A comfort meal to warm you on a cold winter night. An easy meal to feed a crowd for any day. A Saint Patrick’s Day favorite in my home!
As promised, I said I would be sharing my family and friends favorite easy Guinness Beef Stew! Oh my goodness – this is a wonderful meal! This is one of the most tender and tasty stews ever! My family requests this stew all year, but it is super popular during the Saint Patrick’s Day season! I love it because between getting my youngest to school, Irish dance events and lacrosse. Then my older children and the hubs are all work crazy hours. I need easy food that can be reheated anytime! This is a quick prep recipe and so easy to freeze! If we do not have a set dinner time for a day any of us can take a container out the freezer and reheat a delicious dinner!
I will tell you the truth, I don’t think I have sipped a Guinness! Yet, I have used it in my cooking and baking. Such a delicious flavoring to stews, brownies, glaze for corned beef.. endless possibilities!
I just shared with you my Irish Brown Bread! This pairs with Guinness Beef Stew like salt and pepper, ice cream and chocolate sauce, popcorn and butter…I think you get the idea! Yummo!
What I love so much about this stew is the easiness of the preparation. Then the addition of the veggies, as I have always said with all my recipes, please feel free to adjust for your family. My hubs and the boys love meat, so I add a little extra! My girls and I love the veggies, so for us I add a few more of the parsnips and sweet potatoes. If you like another veggie, substitute. Some of my friends use lamb meat,whatever makes your little stewey, I know, I make up my own words with just about every post,its all good as long as you are happy with your stew!
