With St. Patrick's Day not too far away now I start looking thru my Irish recipes . This little gem comes from the Appletree Press title: "A Little Irish Cookbook." I have made this recipe with a few changes of my own. My husband and I love Irish stew. It is a quick and easy recipe to prepare. I hope you will give this one a try.

How to Make Beef in Guinness Irish Stew


  1. Cut beef into chunks , and peel and slice the onions and carrots
  2. Toss the beef in flour and brown quickly in hot fat
  3. Remove beef and fry the onions gently until transparent
  4. Return the beef and add the carrots and the liquid. Bring just to a boil , reduce heat to a very gentle simmer, cover closely
  5. Cook for 1+1/2 -2 hours. Check the dish so that it doesn't dry out, adding more liquid if necessary
