Serves 6

Beef and Guinness stew is a perfect dish for a cold autumn day. You can serve this as a stew or take it one step further and use it as the filling for an impressive pie. Do make sure the meat is tender before serving, different cuts of meat will take longer cooking times.

Heat the oil in a large pot and brown the meat in two batches, be careful not to overcrowd the pan. Remove and set aside on a plate. Add another drop of oil if you need it and then fry off the onion, carrots and celery. Add the meat back into the pot along with the garlic.
Pour in the stock, Guinness, one bay leaf and season to taste. Simmer gently for about 1 1/2 hours until the liquid has reduced. If the sauce isn’t thick enough strain the juices into a bowl and then transfer to a small sauce pan.
Mix a little of the sauce with the flour over heat until you have a smooth paste, then whisk through the rest of the liquid. Simmer gently until you have a thickened sauce, then tip back over the meat. Serve with mashed potatoes or crusty bread.

    Just so you know, you forgot the g in grape seed. But I made this recipe tonight and my home smells heavenly.

      He didn’t–he meant *rapeseed* oil, which is more commonly known as canola oil in North America.

        Oh, thanks! I had no idea

    I can’t wait to try this! Just have to wait until I get some Guinness.

    I tried this for the first time last year and it was a huge hit. The Guinness gives it such a lovely richness. It may be the most requested recipe in my household. When we have leftovers the stew makes a fantastic Guinness Pie. Thank you for sharing your talent.
