A wonderful beef stew recipe featuring a hearty sauce flavored with Guinness. Perfect for St. Patrick’s Day and the best beef stew I’ve ever tasted!
Happy Monday! I am really feeling that one hour of lost sleep. Anybody else? But I would willingly sacrifice an hour of sleep and an hour of my day for that extra hour of daylight….totally worth it, in my opinion! It makes such a difference and gives me an extra hour that I can photograph my food in natural light (things only a food blogger would think about).
This absolutely delicious recipe for Guinness beef stew is very easy to follow and the meat browns so beautifully. I was a little afraid that there would be a strong beer taste, but there wasn’t! Mr. Wishes despises all beer and he ate this up and even had leftovers for lunch the next day. So rest assured that the Guinness is just there for added flavor and to help with the rich gravy/sauce, but does not have a beer taste once the liquid cooks down and the sauce is reduced.
Irish stew is always a good comfort food and fabulous on these (still) cold, winter days. Also, you should know, the flavors develop nicely overnight and it’s maybe even better the next day.
I served this with a Guinness beer bread - double Guinness goodness! :) I’ll be posting that recipe later on this week. Enjoy!
