Irish Beef Guinness Stew #SundayFunday

 
Today the Sunday Funday group is looking at recipes made with beer. Thanks to Stacy of Food Lust People Love, Sue of Palatable Pastime, Rebekah of Making Miracles, and Wendy of A Day in the Life on the Farm for coordinating this low-stress group. 

This week, Rebekah is hosting. She wrote: "August 8th is International Beer Day! Share your favorite recipes cooking or baking with beer - or if you don't like beer, cook or bake with your preferred alcohol! Beer Brats and Beer Bread anyone?" Here's the line-up...


Irish Beef Guinness Stew

Back in March, I started looking at dishes for St. Patrick's Day. Corned beef and cabbage is always a family favorite - despite knowing that it's not an authentically Irish dish - but I came across an Irish beef stew made with Guinness. So, I picked up a six pack and decided to make a version. So  delicious! And we've been making it once a month since then.

Ingredients
 
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 to 2-1/2 pounds beef (I used brisket), cut into large chunks
  • 1 cup onion, peeled and diced
  • 1 cup celery, diced
  • 1 cup carrots, sliced into coins
  • 6-8 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 2 bottles of Guinness (or you can use any beer or stock you have on-hand)
  • 1 can (28-ounce) diced tomatoes or tomato sauce
  • 4 cups potatoes, scrubbed and diced (I leave the peels on)
  • freshly ground salt, as needed
  • freshly ground pepper, as needed

Procedure
 
Heat the oil in a large, Dutch oven. Stir the beef into the pot. Sear on each side for  3 to 5 minutes - until a nice brown begins to appear. Add the onions, celery, and carrots to the pot. Pour in the Guinness and bring to a boil. Then, reduce the heat to a simmer and cover. 

After an hour, stir in the canned tomatoes or tomato sauce. Bring the liquid to a boil again, then reduce the heat to a simmer and cover, again. Let the meat braise for another two to three hours; you really can't cook the meat too long so long as there is still liquid in the pot. The meat just gets more and more tender. 

Fold in the potatoes and simmer until they are fork tender, approximately 30 more minutes. Raise the heat to reduce the sauce to your desired thickness. 

Spoon into individual bowls and serve with more Guinness. 

Sláinte!

Next weekend the group will be back with Sue at the helm. We'll be sharing Roman recipes in honor of Augustus, the first Roman emperor. Time to put on my thinking cap. Stay tuned!

Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them! Ingredients  makes 1 quart jar radishes, trimmed and sliced organic red onions, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer) 3/4 C vinegar (I used white distilled vinegar) 3/4 C water 3 T organic granulated sugar 1 T salt (I used some grey sea salt) 6 to 8 grinds of black pepper Proce

Hot Chocolate Agasajo-Style {Spice It Up!}

photo by D For my Spice It Up! kiddos this week, I was looking for an exotic drink to serve while we learned about saffron. I found a recipe from food historian Maricel Presilla that mimicked traditional Spanish hot chocolate from the 17th century where it was served at lavish receptions called agasajos . When I teach, I don't always get to shoot photos. Thankfully, D grabbed my camera and snapped a few. Ingredients serves 14-16 1 gallon organic whole milk 3 T dried rosebuds - or 2 t rosewater 2 t saffron threads, lightly crushed 3 T ground cinnamon 3 whole tepin chiles, crushed 2 vanilla beans, split lengthwise 1 C organic granulated sugar 1 lb. bittersweet chocolate Procedure In a large soup pot that can hold a gallon plus, combine milk, dried rosebuds (or rosewater, if you are using that), saffron threads, ground cinnamon, chiles, vanilla beans, and sugar and warm over medium heat till it steams. Whisk to dissolve sugar, then lower heat an

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!
