Cooking with Guinness on St. Patty’s Day

Posted on March 16th, 2010

Tomorrow is St. Patrick’s day, a time for gathering with loved ones and enjoying a glass or two of your favorite beer. Many celebrate St. Patty’s day with perhaps the most famous Irish beer, Guinness. It’s a yearly tradition the Beeriety team follows as well. Guinness is not only great on its own, it’s also is great to cook with. Here’s five delicious recipes with Guinness in them to cook tomorrow.

Guinness Bread – Whatever you have to eat tomorrow, you’ll probably want some bread to go with it, and what better bread to have on St. Patrick’s than some tasty Guinness bread? It’s easy to throw together and tasty enough to be its own meal.

Guinness Beef Stew – This classic Irish meal is hearty and delectable. It’s a great meal that will fill you up in no time, but still leave you craving more. The rich flavor of the Guinness blends amazingly well with the beef.

Guinness Potato Salad – Although it may seem a bit unusual, the Guinness really makes this dish into a delicious side. In addition to that, there’s bacon in it, and who doesn’t love bacon? It’ll go great with almost anything you decide to have tomorrow.

Guinness Chocolate Pudding – Absolutely amazing looking and even better tasting, this thick chocolate pudding has a wonderful hint of Guinness to it.

Irish Car Bomb Cupcakes – These delicious treats are inspired by the cocktail of the same name which involves a half-shot of Bailey’s Irish Cream and half-shot of Jameson’s Irish whiskey in a glass of Guinness stout. Our friend Meg made them recently at an Oscars party we attended and they were absolutely amazing.
