All eyes will be smiling, Irish or not, when we serve up this hearty Irish Beef Stew inspired by the classic tastes of the Emerald Isle. This all-in-one-pot meal cooks up to be weeknight or company special.

What You'll Need:
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2 pounds beef or lamb stew meat
  • 3 cups beef broth
  • 1 1/2 cups (12 ounces) Guinness beer
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 large carrots, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 3 celery stalks, sliced into 1/2-inch chunks
  • 1 large onion, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup water
What To Do:
  1. In a soup pot, heat oil over high heat. Stir in stew meat and cook 8 to 10 minutes, or until meat is browned.
  2. Stir in broth, beer, garlic, salt, and pepper; bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer 30 minutes.
  3. Add carrots, celery, and onion; mix well then cook 1 hour, or until meat is tender.
  4. In a small bowl, mix flour with water. Stir into stew, then cook 2 to 3 minutes, or until sauce is thickened.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

i was pretty impressed with how easy this was. i agree with homecookin. step 2 45 min cook time was good

Why is there no potatoes in this stew. Irish people love potatoes and I'm one of then.

The Irish eat mashed potatoes with their stew. It is served either on top of the potatoes or on the side.

Not the best Irish Beef Stew that I had but it was ok. You can taste the Guinness beer in this stew - somewhat over powering, but ok if you like Guinness. Might need to cook step 2 a little longer before adding the vegetables - say maybe 45 minutes. Maybe this might help a wee-bit.
