Irish Beef Stew

Irish Beef Stew is delicious and bold with layers of flavor.  I used Guinness Beer, but you can substitute with Beef Stock to make this recipe gluten-free. There is really nothing more comforting than a delicious bowl of beef stew.

St. Patrick’s Day Recipe.

Happy Tuesday everyone.  We had a gorgeous day here in Cincinnati yesterday, even though there was still piles of snow on the ground the sky was blue and our temperatures got up into the 60’s.  I actually saw some Crocus flowers open in my lawn with honey bees paying a visit.

All signs that spring is almost here, and St. Patrick’s Day is coming.  As a girl I always associated St. Patrick’s with the start of Spring.

Probably because my oldest brothers Birthday falls on St. Patrick’s Day and as soon as the weather would permit he would be outside and I was wouldn’t be far behind. 

I tell my husband stories of my determination to keep up with my brothers and the deep desire to be a boy so I would be included.  He says he envisions me as a little skinny dirty girl with wild hair full of  thistles.  I think my Mother just shakes her head in agreement when he says this.

Spring is almost here, and though the days will start to be warm our nights are still chilly, so make sure you make up a batch of this delicious Irish Stew to enjoy.  It is a hardy flavorful dish that is made in one pot with just a bit of prep work.

I love stew and I love this Irish Stew!

I think it is the layers upon layers of flavor and the beef that just falls apart.  This recipe is super clean and healthy.  I used Guinness Beer in the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day, but if you want to keep the recipe gluten-free, substitute the beer with 1 cup of beef stock.

I also threw in a Parmesan rind, which is the outer shell of parmesan cheese, which occurs when the cheese is set in a salt brine to prevent molding.  

If you don’t have a rind in your cheese drawer, no worries, they actually sell them in your cheese shop at the grocery store.  You definitely want to keep some rinds in your freezer.  

They can be added to almost every soup or stew and add SO SO SO much flavor.  However, if you are on a dairy free diet, just omit the rind, you will still have a delicious stew without it.

    I bet that the Guinness Beer really knocks this one outta the park! I also love the idea of throwing the Parmesan rind in! I’ve got a few saved in the freezer for soups and stews!
