Irish Beef Stew with Guinness


1 T Olive Oil
1 T Butter
2 lbs. Beef Stew meat
8-10 oz Shortcut carrots or 4-6 large carrots, peeled and sliced large
10 oz Pearl onions, trimmed and peeled
4 Garlic cloves, minced
2 TBSP Tomato paste
¼ cup flour
1 TBSP Brown sugar
1 TBSP Worcestershire sauce
12 oz Guinness beer
1 cup red wine
1 cup beef broth
2 Bay leaves
2 TBSP Parsley chopped
Salt and Pepper


  • Heat olive oil and butter in a large saucepan. Add onions and carrots and sauté until slightly browned on all sides. Transfer to a dish.
  • In the same saucepan, add the meat. When browned nicely, add the garlic and stir.
  • Add the tomato paste and flour and stir. Cook 30 seconds while stirring (be careful not to burn the flour).
  • Slowly stir in the Guinness, red wine and beef broth. The stew will thicken as you do this.
  • Bring to a boil and return onions and carrots. Reduce heat to a simmer.
  • Add the brown sugar, Worcestershire, bay leaves and season with salt and pepper.
  • Simmer 1 hour, stirring occasionally until meat is tender and carrots are cooked through.

Serve with a good mound of Colcannon.
