Having snow on the ground and being forced to stay inside in your pajamas all day has its benefits.  For tonight’s dinner I made Guinness Beef Stew.  St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner. Only 10 days to be exact.  The first time I made this hearty beef stew was right after we came home from our first trip to Ireland.  The HH, The Girl, Monkey Boy and I took a tour of the Guinness Storehouse in Dublin.  After the tour we went upstairs to the Guinness restaurant and had lunch.  The kids enjoyed chicken and potatoes while the HH and I feasted on Guinness Beef Stew.  The stew was very simple and had minimal ingredients: beef, parsnips, potatoes, celery, a little salt & pepper and a wee bit of Guinness.  It was delicious.

Back then {in the old days} the recipe was not available.  So as soon as we came home from our trip, I tried to recreate it.  Below you will find the recipe I came up with and use.  If you want the real Guinness version {and if you want to watch of video of a cute Irishman cooking} Go HERE.  Bottom line… If your grocery budget allows, buy a bottle of Guinness and give it a try.  You won’t be disappointed.  I promise.

Start with 2lbs beef cut into 1″ chunks.

Coat the beef  in a mixture of flour, salt and pepper.

Your meat should look like this.

Brown the meat in olive oil, over medium heat, in a dutch oven making sure to brown all sides of the meat.  Placed cooked meat on a plate and set aside.

When you are done, your pot should look like this.

Then add 2 tablespoons of olive oil to your blackened and crusty pot. Toss in your chopped potatoes, carrots and onions and saute for 3 minutes.

Add the beef back to the pot.

Add 1 cup of Guinness Stout.

Add 8 cups of warm water.  Stir. Simmer soup for 2 hours.

Serve with a hunk of crusty bread and butter.

Yum!  Do you plan on making anything special for St. Patrick’s Day?
