Irish stout beef stew.

Stufato irlandese alla birra stout/ Irish stout beef stew.


It’s really really cold outside, of course it’s ok, it’s the coldest part of winter here and I also love cold weather.

I also love the nordic concept of “hygge“, the good feeling of staying together with loved ones, spending quality time at home or in cozy places.

I think a hot, slow cooked stew is very “hygge” so I’m going to share this classic Irish recipe made with stout beer with you.

In this recipe I’ve used a classic Guinness as I had a couple of cans I had to get rid of but you can use any stout you like.

Mashed potatoes or turnips to match and/ or a classic soda bread to pick sauce up.
