    Here's the recipe

    Guinness Beef Stew

    by Edward Harding


    • 2lbs stew meat
    • 2lbs little red potatoes
    • 1 large onion chopped
    • 1/2 a bag of the baby carrots (cut them in half)
    • 1 cup of flour
    • ? of your favorite rub
    • canola oil
    • 1-1/3 cup of beef broth
    • 1 can of Guinness (may add more if additional liquid is needed)
    • 1 packet of McCormick's Beef Stew Seasoning
    • 1 can of peas
    • 1 heaping tablespoon of minced garlic
    • Salt & Fresh Ground Pepper to taste
    • Heat the DO direct over a 350 - 400 dome temp fire... I use Wicked Good Weekend Warrior with 3 chunks of Mesquite.
    • In a freezer bag, combine the flour and as much rub of your choice to taste.Add the meat and shake to thoroughly coat the beef.
    • Once coated, heat some oil in the DO and brown the meat... stirring a couple of times. When pretty browned, remove beef and add some more oil.
    • Add the onions and carrots to the pan along with a tablespoon of minced garlic. Stir occasionally and when the vegs are tender, add the seasoning packet and broth. Stir it around and be sure to loosen any stuck on goodness...
    • Add the beef back to the DO and place the potatoes in as well and stir to mix and coat everything.
    • Add the can of Guinness...
    • Let it simmer, stirring occasionally for about 1-1/4 hours with the top off. Once the potatoes are tender; add the peas and stir it to mix and let it cook for another 15 mins, season to taste with salt (kosher) and ground black pepper, and then pull it off and serve....

    Glad you tried and liked it :)

  • What kind of Guinness do you use? A draught or a stout?

    I always just the regular Guinness in the black cans

    Since I am using a whole beef roast should I cut up the meat before cooking it?

    If you have a big enough DO, it would probably work... otherwise, I would cube the meat up before cooking
