Guinness Beef Stew

Yesterday was another successful Saint Patrick’s Day in our house. Sons # 3 & 4 tried in vain, once again, to catch the leprechaun who left them some golden coins, right under their noses, without them noticing. Dinner featured several traditional Irish flavors, as well as some more ‘unique’ St. Paddy’s Day fare. Over the next 3 days I will be sharing the recipes we enjoyed. This Irish stew was a fun, festive way to celebrate the day and all it’s Irish glory. The stout adds the perfect finishing touch to what otherwise, would be a more traditional beef stew. Pair this with a freshly baked loaf of Irish Soda Bread (recipe coming tomorrow) and you’ve got the perfect ‘ode to Irish heritage’ meal.
