This Beef And Guinness Stew recipe is reaching you just in time for St. Patrick’s Day!
Just like this Chicken Cacciatore recipe, there are so many alternatives now days to slow cook a very good stew or soup. I know how a lot you guys appreciate as several approaches as I can squeeze into a recipe, with the gear you have correct at house. So, because of this, I’ve incorporated both Slow Cooker AND Quick Pot techniques in the recipe!
The great thing about a very good stew is that it can be appreciated at any time of the 12 months. These days is one particular of people days. Cold, cloudy, miserable, while battling a flu. Perfect for a rich and hearty Irish Beef And Guinness Stew! Specifically when it’s cooking away in the oven with tender, fall apart beef guaranteed to hit your bowls.
An authentic Irish stew is traditionally made with mutton or lamb. For this stew, even so, I typically use slow cooker cuts of beef. Not for any other purpose than we appreciate the flavour of beef paired with this Guinness gravy a lot a lot more than when cooked with lamb.
If using your Slow Cooker or Quick Pot, I recommend browning the beef very first if you can. The flavour of browned meat does not assess to throwing raw beef into the slow cooker.
The unique recipe calls for cooking the beef in half of the beer, and adding the rest of the beer in right after cooking. We personally favor the method I’ve presented in the recipe a good deal a lot more, but you can try out either.
Beef cuts particularly employed for slow cooking are greatest with this stew.
For a thicker gravy, combine one heaping tablespoon of cornstarch (or corn flour) with each other with 2 tablespoons of water add following baking in the oven even though it’s nevertheless bubbling. You can also turn on your stove to low heat to do this, stirring the cornstarch mixture by means of till thickened to your liking.
