One of my best ever Beef Stew recipes! This savoury Irish Stew is flavoured with Guinness beer and red wine!

Would celebrating St Patrick’s Day be complete without Irish Stew and Guinness Beer? I don’t think so. This is by far the best stew I have ever made! The combination of Guinness beer and red wine just raised the bar on a flavourful stew. The house smelled wonderful cooking this traditional Irish dish; well almost traditional, I used beef instead of lamb or mutton.


  • 2 lbs stewing beef cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 large russet potato (about 2 cups) cut into 1/2 pieces
  • 3 large red potatoes (about 3 cups) cut into 1/2 pieces
  • 3 stalks celery, sliced
  • 3 large carrots, (about 2 cups) cut into 1/2 pieces
