Beef in Guinness


  • 1 (2 1/2 pound) shin of beef
  • 2 large onions
  • 6 medium carrots
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour (seasoned with salt and pepper)
  • A little fat or beef dripping
  • 1 cup Guinness and water mixed
  • Sprig of parsley


  1. Cut beef into chunks.
  2. Peel and slice the onions and carrots.
  3. Toss the beef in the flour and brown quickly in hot fat.
  4. Remove the beef and fry the onions gently until transparent.
  5. Return the beef and add the carrots and the liquid. Bring just to a boil, reduce the heat to a very gently simmer, cover closely and cook for 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Check so the dish does not dry out, adding more liquid if necessary.
  6. Sprinkle with chopped parsley.

Serves 4.
