holidayscentral's picture
Have your guests drooling at your St. Patrick’s Day celebration. Serve this delicious Guinness beef stew made with Guinness stout beer which tenderizes the beef and gives the stew a rich, malty flavor. It is absolutely heavenly, especially when served with Irish soda bread.
Ingredients
  Beef 2 Pound, cubed
  Onion 1 Large, diced
  Leek 1 , sliced
  Carrot 1 , sliced
  Stalk celery 1 , sliced
  Dried thyme 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Dried rosemary 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Garlic 6 Clove (30 gm), peeled and minced
  Guinness beer 17 Ounce
  Flour 1 Tablespoon
  Tomato paste 1 Tablespoon
  Worcestershire sauce 2 Tablespoon
  Bay leaves 2 , dried
  Button mushrooms/Cremini mushrooms 1⁄2 Pound, halved
  Salt To Taste
  Freshly ground black pepper 1
Directions

In a large stock pot, brown the beef on all sides in small batches. Remove beef and set aside. Remove all but 1 tablespoon of the drippings from the pot. Then, add onions, sautéing until soft. Add leeks, carrot, celery, thyme and rosemary and continue to sauté until soft. Next add the garlic, and sauté until fragrant. Mix in the flour, stirring until well combined.

Next, add 1 cup of Guinness scraping the pot with a wooden spoon to release the flour that may be stuck on the pot. Now, add remaining Guinness, beef, tomato paste, Worcestershire sauce and bay leaves. Bring to a boil and then simmer about 45 minutes to an hour or until meat is tender and the sauce has thickened. Finally, stir in mushrooms and continue simmering until mushrooms are cooked through. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
