Guinness Beef Stew

This Guinness Beef Stew is similar to my traditional Irish Stew but is enhanced with a bottle of Guinness and a good dose of mushrooms. Those two riffs add amazing flavor to the dish, beefing up the richness and savory goodness. My husband is a big fan of Guinness.

    I’m not one bit Irish but they say we all are on St. Patrick’s Day so with that in mind, I really enjoy the day and make the most of it. About one week ahead of time, I make about 10 Irish Soda breads and give them out to friends and family. My bay window in the living room is all decorated in green. My dinner table is decorated in green and white, and I make traditional Corned Beef and Cabbage. But my favorite part of the meal is the corned beef hash I make with the leftover corned beef. Combined with a simple green salad, that is a meal I look forward to every time.

    I made your Irish stew for St.Patricks Day. My daughter ate the leftovers 4 times! She even took it for lunch in a thermos. Pretty sure she was the only 8 year old with that for lunch! She said “You definitely need to make this again!”

    • I’m so glad she liked it! Since it’s a crockpot recipe, it’s good all year round, too. 🙂
