Guinness Beef Stew

Beer, potato, and meat, this is what this dish is. It’s Irish? I am not sure, but is it delicious? Yes! It’s super simple, and will definitely warm you up on a cold winter night.


You need:

  • 2 lb beef chuck
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 2 onions
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1 bottle Guinness
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 3 carrots
  • 2 stalks celery
  • 1 teaspoon white sugar
  • 2 cups beef stock
  • 1 1/2 lb potatoes

How to make this:

  1. Cut the beef into 2-inch cubes, roughly chop the onions, carrots, celery, and potatoes
  2. Toss the beef in the salt, black pepper, and flour, heat up a dutch oven or a deep pot on medium high, and brown the meat
  3. Take the meat out, and in the same pot, cook the onions, carrots, and celery on medium for about 4 min, then pour half of the Guinness in, deglaze the pan
  4. Pour in the rest of Guinness, add the potatoes, sugar and beef stock, bring them to a simmer, then turn the heat down to low and let it cook for about 2 hours
  5. Serve it by itself or with some bread
