Irish beef stew is everything you expect of a beef stew, but with a kick of extra flavor from a lovely dark beer.

The broth on this irish stew is has such an amazing flavor, and I’m a huge fan of using a dark beer, like Guinness in this stew.

Even if you use some leftover corned beef from your St. Paddy’s Day dinner, that would be an awesome protein substitution. Either way this is so delicious and worth cooking up!
