Here is a stew for St. Patrick’s Day. The Guiness gives the stew such a rich flavor. I think this would also be good if the potatoes were left out and then the stew was served over mashed potatoes.

Guiness Beef Stew in the Crockpot

1 pound stew beef, cut into large bite-size chunks
1 pound potatoes, peeled, cut into large chunks
2 onions, cut into chunks
2 carrots, peeled, cut into large chunks
8 ounces mushrooms, cleaned, quartered
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 (11.2 ounces) bottle Guinness stout
1 cup beef broth
4 tablespoons cornstarch, mixed with enough water to make a thin slurry
salt and pepper, to taste

Place all the ingredients in the crockpot and stir to combine. Cook on low, stirring occasionally, for 6 to 8 hours or until the beef is tender and falling apart. The potatoes should also be tender. Serve the stew warm.
