Vegan Stout Stew

Rated as 4 out of 5 Stars
4

"You'll find some of the most versatile vegetables simmering in a pot of thick Irish beer that, when thickened with flour and sweetened with a bit of brown sugar and soy sauce, becomes a rich and flavorful stew. Serve when it's cold or when you're looking for a hearty stew that will satisfy vegetarian and non-vegetarians alike! Make sure to get the regular beer, not stout!"

  1. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil and soy sauce in a skillet over medium-high heat. Saute seitan in hot oil until browned on all sides, about 5 minutes.
  2. Heat remaining olive oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Saute onion, celery, carrots, potatoes, and garlic in hot oil until onions are soft, 3 to 5 minutes. Reduce heat to medium and slowly stir beer into vegetable mixture.
  3. Stir brown sugar, flour, thyme, salt, and black pepper into beer mixture; add seitan. Bring mixture to a simmer, reduce heat to low, and cook until stew reduces and thickens, about 45 minutes.

Guinness is not vegan or vegetarian, since they still use fish batters to filter.

I wan't able to find actual vegan stout before I was ready to cook this, so next time I will find, ahead of time, where I can buy that. I used Guiness; I think for my own tastes I would buy a ...

I have made this recipe three or four times, and it is a hit every time.

Added some peas because I like them and threw in a not beef bouillon cube, a little water and a bit more flour. This is an awesome recipe. I’ll be eating this all week.

Love it! The stout will make the difference. Choose wisely... :)
