This is such a tasty stew to have and as our weather is cooling it is definitely a good one to have on the menu.

Beef and Guinness Stew using stewing steak.


  • Stewing Steak or Pot Roast (I used stewing steak)
  • 2 cans Guinness Beer
  • 1 Onion
  • 2 cups of sliced mushrooms (or couple of hand fulls)
  • Olive Oil
  • 1/2 cup Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1/2 cup Brown Sugar
  • Salt and Pepper

Brown onions and mushrooms in a little olive oil.  Use a casserole pot that can go from stove top to oven, I used a dutch oven.

Add beef or roast and brown. Once meat is brown add apple cider vinegar, brown sugar and salt and pepper.

Mix altogether and finally add beer.  Place the lid on and put in a moderate oven for approximately 2 hours.

Serve with mashed potato.

  1. With the exception of the mushrooms, this is a perfect recipe for a homesteader. Everything else is always in the pantry or refrigerator. Except the beer–but I bet it stores awhile in the pantry?
    I just may have to try it.

    1. Hey there, I really love mushrooms and they are always on the shopping list, we can probably go through a kilo (2.25 pounds to a kilo) here a week, and because we have music lessons weekly I am able to get them regularly. Beer stores well and it is good this one is really strong, which means they aren’t that keen to drink it :-). It is a great warming meal during the cooler months. Blessings
