Slow Cooker Guinness Beef Stew – The Travel Bite Print

Slow Cooker Guinness Beef Stew

  • Author: Rachelle Lucas
  • Prep Time: 10 mins
  • Cook Time: 6 hours
  • Total Time: 6 hours 10 mins
  • Yield: 4 1x


  • 1 1/2 lbs stewing diced beef
  • 1 quart beef stock
  • 1 bottle Guinness Draught Stout
  • 1 large carrot – diced
  • 1 large parsnip – diced
  • 1 medium onion – diced
  • 2 celery stalks – quartered
  • springs of fresh thyme and rosemary
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • mashed potatoes to serve on the side.


  1. Prep all the vegetables by washing and dicing. It will be approximately 1 cup of each, but it is okay if it is a little less or a little more since you’re making a stew.
  2. Layer all the ingredients into a slow cooker, starting with the onions, then the beef, carrot, parsnip, celery, salt, pepper, and sprigs of rosemary and thyme. (Save a little bit of the herbs for garnish.)
  3. Pour beef stock and Guinness over all the ingredients and set the slow cooker on high heat for a minimum of 6 hours.
  4. When ready to serve, remove the celery stalks and springs of herbs (it is okay if some of the rosemary and thyme leaves have fallen off into the stew.)
  5. Spoon into bowls and serve with mashed potatoes.
