Beef and Guinness Stew

This classic Beef and Guinness Stew uses almost a pint of the black stuff to add flavour. Combined with onions and mashed potatoes it’s a winter winner!


  • Beef shin, diced (2 kilo)
  • Plain flour (2 tbsp)
  • Olive oil (1 tbsp)
  • Onions, peeled and halved (2)
  • Garlic cloves, peeled and diced (2)
  • Beef stock (500ml)
  • Butter (25g)
  • Parsley, chopped (1 small bunch)


Season the flour then use it to coat the beef. Place a pan over a medium heat, add the oil and when it is hot, brown the beef in batches and place into a slow cooker. In the same pan char the onions and add to the pot with the garlic, stock and Guinness.

Place the lid on the slow cooker and cook for 8 to 12 hours.

Spoon the meat into a serving bowl. Pour the sauce and onions into a pan and boil to reduce slightly and adding the butter to thicken it.

Ladle the onions and sauce over the meat and garnish with parsley.

Serve with mashed potatoes.
