Irish Guinness Beef Stew recipe with a hearty gravy, yukon gold potatoes, carrots, and parsnips.
Tomorrow's St. Patty's Day! Are you ready? Have you found that green outfit you only wear once a year? 

I'm still having a hard time deciding between Guinness Beef Stew or Corned Beef and Cabbage. I know for sure we will be making another loaf or two of Irish Brown Bread because it's so easy to make and tastes amazing! Colt's vote was both and then Reuben Sandwiches with the leftover Corned Beef. He's not much help. I'll probably be making Irish Guinness Beef Stew again later in the week to appease Colt for both since overall it's pretty easy to make.

I mean who needs a holiday to make Irish Guinness Beef Stew? The dark stout beer really brings out the flavor of the beef in the gravy for the ultimate comfort food. It's hearty, rich, and stick to your bones delicious.

Cube a 3 pound Chuck Roast into 1" pieces. I removed the really large pieces of fat. Rub with 1 teaspoon Salt and 1 teaspoon Pepper.

Add 1 pound Peeled Pearl Onions or 2 large Peeled Onions that have been quartered. Cook until onions are golden brown. If using Pearl Onions pull them from the pot and set aside. I made the mistake of leaving them in the stew and they were really broken down by the time it was done.

And slowly whisk in 12 ounces of your favorite Stout Beer. We used Guinness but there are so many options that would be equally delicious! Irish Guinness Beef Stew recipe with a hearty gravy, yukon gold potatoes, carrots, and parsnips.

Stir in Browned Beef Cubes, 1 tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce, 3 whole Bay Leaves, and 3 sprigs Thyme or 1 teaspoon Dried. Bring to a simmer, reduce heat to low, cover, and cook for 2 hours stirring occasionally.

Add 7 quartered Yukon Gold Potatoes, 1 pound Carrots cut on the bias and 3 whole Parsnips peeled and cut on the bias. If you are using Pearl Onions I would add them back after stirring in the potatoes and carrots to prevent them from braking down. Recover, simmer, and cook 1 hour or until veggies and beef is tender. Stir occasionally to prevent sticking. If the beef is still tough it needs to cook longer.

Taste stew and add additional salt if needed. Remove bay leaves before serving. You can garnish with chopped parsley for color.

If I hadn't just made Irish Guinness Beef Stew last week it would definitely be what we would be having tomorrow for dinner it's always a favorite. The only bad part is we never seem to have leftovers.
