Guinness Beef Stew with Irish Soda Biscuits

  • Author: Marty Boyd
  • Prep Time: 30 minutes
  • Cook Time: 90 minutes
  • Total Time: 2 hours
  • Yield: 6 servings 1x



2 tablespoons avocado oil, divided
2 pound beef chuck roast, trim fat & cut into bite size chunks
Salt & Pepper
2 medium sweet onions, peeled, halved and sliced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/3 cup flour
112 ounce bottle Guinness beer
132 ounce carton of beef bone broth
5 large carrots, peeled and cut into bite size pieces
12 baby red potatoes, halved
3 tablespoons tomato paste
1 bay leaf
1 tablespoon fresh thyme dried thyme
Chopped fresh parsley for garnish


Sprinkle beef chunks with salt and pepper.

Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a large stockpot over medium-high heat.
Add about half of the beef chunks to heated, and sear, turning the beef every 30-45 seconds or so until all sides are browned.

Remove beef chunks with a slotted spoon, and place on a clean plate.  Add remaining 1 tablespoon oil to the stockpot, and repeat with remaining beef chunks, then transfer them to the plate as well.

Add the onion to the stockpot, adding extra oil if needed. Sauté for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add garlic sautéing for another minute, stirring occasionally.

Sprinkle flour over the onions and stir to coat onions with flour cooking for about  1 minute.

Gradually pour in the Guinness, stirring with a wooden spoon to scrape the bottom of the pan to loosen any brown bits.

Stir in the beef bone broth, carrots, potatoes, tomato paste, bay leaf, thyme, and the reserved cooked beef, along with any juices on the plate. Continue cooking; when stew reaches a simmer, cover and reduce heat to medium-low.  Simmer over low for 1 1/2 hours, stirring occasionally, until the beef is tender and the potatoes are soft.

Remove bay leaf.

Pre heat oven to 425 degrees.

Prepare the Irish Soda Biscuits according to the recipe.

Using an ice cream scoop, drop biscuit dough by the scoop around the side of the pan creating a circle along the outside.

Place in oven and bake for 15-20 minutes or until the biscuit are cooked through and beginning to turn golden.

Remove from oven and garnish with chopped parsley if desired.
