Guinness Beef Steak Casserole


GuinnessThis recipe for Guinness Beef Steak Casserole has been put together by Hub-UK - if you have any questions about it feel free to email us.

We all enjoy our food but there is nothing like real comfort food . . . food that makes you feel contented and warm, at peace with the world. With Autumn here and the cold winter months just around the corner I wanted to create something a bit special that I could share with cooks of all skills, from the beginner in the kitchen to the seasoned campaigner turning out wonderful meals for dinner parties. Whatever the skill level everyone loves to indulge in enjoying meals like their mother or grandmother cooked . . . now everyone can with Guinness Beef Casserole.

The recipe has been put together with two important considerations, it must taste good with everyone asking for second helpings and it must be something the beginner in the kitchen can put together with confidence and ease.

Why Guinness? Well Guinness is well know around the world and is therefore fairly easy to get hold of. Secondly, and most importantly Guinness is wonderful to cook with, greatly adding to the flavour.

This beef casserole wants to be prepared well ahead to allow for the lengthy slow cooking. You can prepare it the day before if you wish. Don't worry if your quantities are slightly different.

Ingredients for Guinness Beef Steak Casserole

1 kilo beef braising steak, cut into small pieces
500 ml Guinness
500 ml water
4 beef stock cubes (I use Knorr)
1 large onions
4 or 5 cloves garlic, finely chopped

2 tbsp olive oil
300 g French Beans, 1 inch pieces (fresh or frozen)
2 x 420 g Mixed Beans in tomato sauce (or baked beans)

How to make Guinness Beef Steak Casserole

  • Peel and chop the onions and sauté in olive oil for about 5 minutes in a large deep saucepan.
  • Add the garlic and sauté for another 5 minutes.
  • Increase the heat and add the beef and cook to seal.
  • Guinness Beef CasseroleOnce the beef is browned add the beef stock cubes and stir until they dissolve in the meat juices.
  • Keep stirring and add the Guinness and the water and bring to the boil. (It will go very frothy at this stage but don't worry as that will soon disappear).
  • Once it comes to the boil turn ring down to lowest heat and cover with lid. Leave to simmer for 3 hours.
  • Add French beans and leave simmer for another hour.
  • Add mixed beans (or baked beans) and bring back to the boil then allow to bubble gently with the lid off for 20 to 30 minutes. (This is the time to cook your potatoes in a separate pan).

You can serve with new potatoes, mashed potatoes or whatever takes your fancy. Any leftovers are great warmed up the next day for lunch, served in a soup bowl with thick chunks of buttered fresh bread. Bliss!
