Celebrating St. Patrick’s Day {Irish Beef & Guinness Stew}

Happy Sunday! We are rounding out our St. Patrick’s Day {food} celebration with our favorite Beef & Guinness Stew. This is a version I tweaked for the Instant Pot, but it would be easy to cook in a dutch oven or crock pot as well.

Beef and Guinness Stew

  • 3 tablespoons canola oil, divided
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 pounds boneless chuck roast, trimmed and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 2 chopped onions
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 4 cups beef broth
  • 1 bottle Guinness Stout
  • 1 teaspoon caraway seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups diagonal slices carrot
  • 1 lb. diced new potato (I used a bag that was 24 oz)
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley

1. Heat 1 1/2 tablespoons oil in saute mode in Instant Pot. Place flour in a shallow dish. Sprinkle beef with 1/2 teaspoon salt; dredge beef in flour. Add half of beef to pan; cook 5 minutes, turning to brown on all sides. Remove beef from pan with a slotted spoon. Repeat procedure with remaining 1 1/2 tablespoons oil and beef.

2. Add onion to pot; cook 5 minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally. If you have a bunch of flour stuck to the bottom of the pot, go ahead start adding a little of the beer to scrape it off. Stir in tomato paste; cook 1 minute, stirring frequently. Stir in broth and beer, scraping pan to loosen browned bits. Return meat to pan. Stir in remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt, caraway seeds, and pepper.  Add carrot, potato and celery.

3. Turn the vent to sealed and pot to high pressure cook mode and time 35 minutes. When finished cooking, let the pressure release naturally for about 10 minutes, then flip the vent to the quick-release pressure.  Sprinkle with parsley.

NOTE: Always follow the manufacturer directions for your specific Instant Pot, including on sealing, venting and cooking times.

I served our stew with beer bread from Trader Joes. It was in a box mix and I was so excited about it. Everyone HATED it! It is the first thing I’ve brought home from TJ that wasn’t a hit.

For dessert we had the creme de menthe brownies I shared Friday!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!! I’m hopping right along to Easter tomorrow. :-)

  1. That’s too bad about the beer bread! I have a recipe for cheddar beer bread I’ve used for years – directly from BH&G (red and white) cookbook and it always turns out wonderfully.

    Happy St. Patrick’s Day! xo
