Incredible and perfect for a cold evening! Don’t gulp down all the Guinness because here is one recipe to try. Guinness can do so much, so quit drinking and start cooking. Lovers of the popular beer would definitely make this meal a tradition in no time.
- 1 kg beef
- 2 tbsp plain flour
- 3 tbsp vegetable oil
- 3 tsp salt
- 6 pcs carrot
- 2 cans Guinness Foreign Extra Stout 33 cl
- 4 pcs Irish potatoes
- 2 pcs bay leaves
- 1 tsp dried thyme
- 1 tsp black pepper
- 6 pcs garlic
- 150 g mushroom
- 1 pcs onions
- 2 tbsp tomato paste
- 1 cup water
- 1 bunch parsley
- Firstly wash the beef and cut into pieces then set aside. Chop the onions, mince the garlic, slice the mushroom and set aside. Dissolve the tomato paste in 4 tablespoons of water and set aside. Also, peel the potato and cut into chunks and cut the carrot into short chunks.
- Combine the beef, salt, pepper, 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil and flour in a bowl and toss together. In a large saucepan, heat the remaining vegetable oil over high heat and brown the beef on all sides.
- Remove the beef from the oil and reduce heat. Add the onions, garlic, dissolved tomato paste and cook for about 5 minutes. Transfer the content of the saucepan to a large pot and boil 1 can of Guinness in the saucepan, stirring occasionally to remove caramelised beef juice on the pan.
- Place the browned beef the pot containing the tomato sauce, pour the boiled Guinness and the remaining can of Guinness into the pot. Add the potato, mushroom, bay leaves, thyme and carrot.
- Stir and adjust seasoning. Cook over low heat for about 2-3 hours or until beef is tender. Add water while cooking if necessary.
Serve and garnish with parsley.
