Irish Guinness Beef Stew for St. Patrick’s Day

Recipe for Irish Beef and Guinness Stew

I’m not Irish but I don’t mind celebrating St. Patrick’s Day on March 17th. Besides drinking green beer, which I can actually say I’ve only had once, I like the food. Who doesn’t like a good hearty Irish stew or perhaps some Irish soda bread? In fact, I wanted to share with you a yummy Irish stew recipe, which I know you’ll enjoy and it’s great for any month of the year, not just March because of St. Patrick’s Day. It’s especially a yummy recipe for those cold winter months or for camping because it’s so easy to heat up over the fire and enjoy for lunch or dinner. In fact, I almost love it best leftover, it gets thick and the flavors all blend together so well. Yummy!
