Irish Beef Stout Stew Recipe

Get Lucky on St. Patrick's Day With Irish Beef and Stout Stew

St. Paddy's Day is nearly upon us, and my new favorite holiday dish is this easy Irish beef and stout stew. It's the perfect marriage of late Winter and early Spring. The beef is fall-apart tender from hours of oven braising, while the green peas added in at the last minute are a bright reminder of how gardens are finally awakening. This recipe, which I discovered thanks to Everyday Food, requires virtually no prep time but a significant amount of cooking time, so make it when you're cleaning the house or tuning in to your favorite TV shows. Then sit down to dinner with a lime shandy and Guinness ice cream for the ultimate March 17 meal. Get the recipe here.
