Irish Beef Stew with Guinness Beer (serves 8)

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 pounds beef stew meat, cubed
  • 3 cups Guinness (or stout beer)
  • 2 potatoes, peeled and sliced
  • 2 potatoes, peeled and quartered
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Stir in the onion, garlic, salt, and pepper. Cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in the beef, beer, sliced potatoes, and quartered potatoes. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the beef is tender, about 2 hours. 

Season to taste with salt and pepper before serving.
