Cooking with Guinness for St. Patrick’s Day

Cooking with Guinness for St. Patrick's DayWe have been cruising around the internet finding some great (and some surprising) recipes for cooking with Guinness for St. Patrick’s Day. Here is a great selection to choose from. Now, we don’t recommend creating a menu that has Gunness in every menu item—you might stop being able to taste it!  And it is interesting that chocolate and Guinness go so well together. Let us know if you try any!

One of our staff favorites is this recipe for Beef and Guinness Stew. You could always do a variation in the slow cooker so St. Patrick’s Day dinner is ready when you get home.

Beef and Guinness Pie from Saveur Magazine is a hearty Irish variation on steak and kidney pie, made with the island’s most famous beer.

This Guinness Bread is a quick bread that is easily assembled, and could be ready in time for dinner. It’s from the Guinness website, so it must be authentic.

In this Charred Cabbage with Guinness, savoy cabbage is quickly charred before simmering in Guinness. White wine and sugar give it an agrodolce-like sweet-and-sour flavor. Caraway seeds add flavor and texture. It’s the perfect accompaniment for a big plate of corned beef.

Chocolate Stout Pudding is an extra-rich, dark chocolate pudding that puts the store-bought version to shame. From Food 52.

Chocolate Stout Cake is not unlike the pudding in its richness and deliciousness. The beer gives it a richer, fuller, nuttier flavor while keeping it from leaning too heavily on the sweet side, the sour cream makes it exceedingly moist, and the chocolate ganache on top has a hint of coffee. Smitten Kitchen is a favorite blog.

And if you want to stick with a warming beverage, try this Hot Chocolate with Guinness, Whiskey, and Baileys from our archives.
