    c.walsh's Note:

    With my Irish father in town, I wanted a ready-made meal after a long day of sight-seeing. I chose a hearty beef stew and wanted to incorporate his favorite beer, Guinness. I was worried that we left it in too long, but after 10 hours on low and 2 hours on warm ( it was a long day of sight-seeing) it was still awesome! Makes a flavorful, thick sauce to dip bread in. I filled the crock pot to the top because I wanted enough for them to have lunch left-overs, so decrease the amounts if needed. Enjoy!

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Put potato, carrot, and celery chunks in the bottom of crock pot. Top with 2 bay leaves.
    2. 2
      Season flour with a dash of salt, pepper and garlic powder and coat the beef with the flour mixture. Heat a couple of tbsp of olive oil over med-high heat in a large skillet and add 1 bay leaf. Sauté beef in batches, just until browned.(It took me about 3 batches in a 12" skillet). Add more oil to pan as necessary for each batch. Remove and set aside.
    3. 3
      Add onion and garlic to the same pan and sauté over med heat for a few minutes, then add about half the can of beef broth to deglaze, scraping up the brown bits on the bottom of the pan. (That's Flavor!).
    4. 4
      Add meat and onions to crock pot, top with mushrooms.
    5. 5
      Mix remaining beef broth with tomato sauce, onion soup mix, remaining seasonings, and add to crock pot. Pour in most of bottle of beer (whatever fits, I had a few sips left for me).
    6. 6
      Cook 8 hours on low heat. Stir in frozen peas when done, they'll heat up on their own.
    7. 7
      Serve with crusty French bread!
    8. 8
      *Tony Chachere's and Mrs. Dash are my "go-to" seasonings for everything. You can use your favorite if these are not available.

      I love this stew, it is the best I have ever had! Tried it both with Guinness stout and draught (and once with Murphy's Irish Stout, and using a stout beer is the way to go. Gives it a richer flavor, not that flavor is lacking in this recipe. Works great in a crock pot, but I love it in a cast iron dutch oven too! You can use it to brown the meat and add the other ingredients and just pop it in the oven, I did 3 hours at 300 degrees but I am sure time/temp can be successfully tweaked. Thanks c.walsh for this recipe, I have passed it on to many family members!

      Wonderful! I have made many stews over the years but this one is definitely at the top of the list. The only change I made was that I used "beef onion soup" mix. I can't say enough good things about this stew! Definitely a keeper.

      Fantastic! Everyone loved it and wanted more. I used only 2 bay leaves, regular white mushrooms, only one can of tomato sauce and forgot the peas. I cooked it in the crock pot on high for 5 hours. I only had cans of Guinness on hand and used a whole can (14.9 oz). I'll definitely make this again.
