Irish Stout Beef Stew


This is a twist on an Irish stew recipe. I added some additional seasonings as the other recipes I've tried ended up being too bland. Serve with Irish soda bread.

  • 4 large potatoes, cut into large chunks

  • 1 medium white onion, chopped

  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed

  • 2 (14.5 ounce) cans green beans, drained

  • 1 (6 ounce) can tomato paste

  • 1 (1.5 ounce) package dry beef stew seasoning mix

  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce

  • 2 cups beef broth

  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour, or as needed

  • ½ teaspoon seasoned salt, or to taste

  • 2 pounds cubed beef stew meat

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • ½ (15 ounce) can Irish stout beer (such as Guinness®), or more if needed

  • 1 cup water, or as needed


  1. Place potatoes, onion, garlic, green beans, and tomato paste in a slow cooker. Sprinkle with stew seasoning and pour beef broth over top. Mix in stew seasoning and Worcestershire sauce.

  2. Heat oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat.

  3. Place flour on a plate and add seasoned salt. Coat stew meat in the flour mixture then brown in the hot skillet, 5 to 7 minutes per batch. Add browned meat directly to the slow cooker.

  4. Add stout beer to the slow cooker and water, if necessary, to bring the liquid even with the ingredients so nothing dries out.

  5. Cook on High until meat is tender and potatoes are soft, about 6 hours.

Cook's Note:

You can add numerous veggies to this recipe: celery, carrots, green beans, etc.
