With only 15 minutes of Prep Time, this one is a rich and hearty Guinness Beef Stew. It’s also a terrific recipe for St. Patrick’s Day. We hope you enjoy it!


All of the ingredients in this Guinness Beef Stew make for a rich and hearty meal.


It’s important to use a pot large enough to spread the beef chunks out so that they can brown and not steam.


As you add the Guinness and garlic to the pot, make sure to scrape all of the browned bits from the bottom. That’s where all the flavor is!


Add some delicious crusty bread (like this easy Irish Soda Bread) to dip in the gravy.
You won’t be hungry when you’re done with this meal!
