    Serves: 4 

    • 1 onion, chopped
    • 900g beef stewing steak
    • 750ml Guinness®
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 3 cloves garlic, minced
    • 4 medium potatoes
    • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:2hr15min  ›  Ready in:2hr30min 

    1. Cut two of the potatoes into slices, and the other two into quarters. (The sliced potatoes break down and thicken the stew.)
    2. Put a casserole over medium-high heat. Pour in the olive oil. When the olive oil is hot, add the onion, garlic, salt and pepper. Cook the onions and garlic until soft, about six minutes.
    3. Add the Guinness®, beef and potatoes to the pot. Raise the heat to high. When the whole mess of goodness begins to boil, lower the heat to low/simmer and cover the pot.
    4. Simmer the stew for two hours, stirring every once in a while. About 10 minutes before it's done, taste it and add more salt and pepper if you like.

    Added some chopped turnips and carrots and garnished with parsley. Everyone loved it - will be making again  -  10 Nov 2011


    Really tasty results from simple ingredients. I added carrots. And I cooked it in my slow-cooker on low for 8 hours.  -  09 Feb 2018


    So easy to make and very, very tender. I made it in a casserole pot and let it simmer for two hours. As suggested, I added carrots and parsnips.  -  10 Nov 2011
