It is just simple tweaks that turn one recipe into another versions. Yes just changing or adding a few extra ingredients can turn a stew from American to Irish. So without any further ado, let us look into how to make an Irish beef stew.

Apparently if you were to go authentic Irish, then you would be making your stew from lamb instead of beef. Hence if you enjoy lamb or have some already, feel free to use that instead of the beef to make this stew. The other ‘special’ ingredient is the Guinness Stout, which if not available just use any other beer or just the wine.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • beef stew meat
  • salt
  • olive oil
  • garlic cloves
  • beef stock
  • water
  • Guinness Stout
  • red wine
  • tomato paste
  • sugar
  • dried thyme
  • Worcestershire sauce
  • bay leaves
  • butter
  • russet potatoes
  • chopped onion
  • carrots
  • ground black pepper
  • fresh parsley
  • large stockpot
  • tongs
  • large pan

Heat the olive oil in the large stockpot, and add the beef sprinkled with salt. Cook beef on each side and turn once done. The garlic goes in next, saute for half a minute before adding stock, water, beer, wine, sugar, tomato paste, thyme, Worcestershire sauce and bay leaves. Stir well, reduce heat and allow to simmer for at least an hour. Remember to stir, every now and again.

In the pan, melt the butter and saute the onion and carrots for about 15 minutes. The onion should be golden brown when ready to be transferred to the beef stew after the first hour. Also add the potatoes, black pepper and salt. Allow to simmer for another 40 minutes. Fish out the bay leaves and throw away any extra fat. Your beef stew is ready to serve, garnish with some parsley. Enjoy.
