Top o’ the morning to you! Let’s introduce one of our absolute favorite Saint Patrick’s Day meals – Irish Guinness beef stew! It’s comfy, homey, delectable, and is the physical embodiment of sitting under a warm blanket with your feet toasty warm from the roaring flames and embers from the fireplace. 

Now, that’s a pretty tall order, but this stew totally pulls it off! 

It’s loaded with succulent fall apart beef, sweet carrots, earthy celery, creamy baby potatoes, and – joy of joys – dark and hearty beer. 

What more could you want on a chilly March evening?

Bonus: The recipe doesn’t quite call for a full bottle of Guinness, so you can have a little nip while stirring this aromatic one pot meal. 

Winner, winner, beef and beer dinner! 

Now round up your ingredients, grab your F.N. Sharp Utility Knife and get that cutting board ready for some veggie prep!
