Guinness Beef Stew Recipe @pinch

A robust and thick beef stew recipe that's perfect over mashed potatoes. The meat and carrots are cooked to perfection in the Guinness. Adding pearl onions and fresh thyme adds fantastic flavor. Honey is an unusual stew ingredient but it adds a bit of sweetness to the stew. This is a meal to put on the stove and simmer on St. Patrick's Day. It is the perfect stew for a cold day but does take a little TLC. My husband who is a professional chef once cooked at an Irish pub this was his recipe for Guinness Beef Stew.
