Cook with Guinness!
Have you ever tried adding Guinness to your kitchen cooking? This classic Irish beer is suitable for more than just sipping! Made of Barley, roast malt extract, water and brewer’s yeast, Guinness tastes amazingly delicious in foods such as cupcakes and meat. It only adds flavour to your food, and the best part is you can drink the leftovers! To get started cooking with Guinness, try any of the below recipes!
Beef and Guinness Stew
Irish Beef and Guinness Stew is the Cream of the Crop because the gravy sauce is delicious! This recipe is as easy as a pie to make but it does require around 2 and a half hour.
Start by cutting your beef into 5cm chunks, and pat them dry after sprinkling salt and pepper. Let them turn brown in a heavy based pot filled with oil. Use the same pot to grill garlic and onion, then add bacon to it. Cook it until the bacon is browned, and add flour to it. Stir the mixture while you slowly add the Guinness. Add the beef and mixed vegetables once the flour has dissolved. Pour some water to make it better! Cover the pot and let the food cook for 2 hours until the beef is tender.
Finally, add some salt and pepper to adjust the taste… and serve your delicious Beef and Guinness stew with mashed potatoes. Bonne appetite!
Guinness Barbecue Sauce
It’s the grilling season, and you’ll need gallons of barbecue sauce! Why not make your own to spice things up?
Begin this delicious mixture by cooking some onions, green peppers and garlic. Add Guinness to the mixture, until it yields into a rich and dark sauce. Complement the blend with brown sugar to sweeten it and to give it a sticky texture! Now, it’s time to start your barbecue by slathering the sauce on your fresh meat. Yummy!
You’ve reached the rainbow’s end- the dessert! Guinness brownies are perfect to serve as desserts or simply as a side dish at the beginning of a party, and they are very simple to make.
Preheat your oven to 350%, and grease a 9x9 square pan lined with parchment paper. Take out a big bowl, and mix Guinness, sugar, vanilla and oil. Add butter and eggs slowly to have a combined mixture. Mix flour and cocoa in another bowl, and add this to the eggs mixture at a slow pace. Pour the batter in the greased pan, and let this in the oven for 35 minutes. In the meantime, place chocolate chips, butter and Guinness into a microwave bowl to melt, for some ganache. Pour your ganache over the brownies, and cut into small cubes. Let your sweet tooth take over!
