Celebrate St. Patty's Day with These Irish Recipes 

Traveling in your Lance Camper truck camper, travel trailer, or fifth wheel this March doesn't mean you have to skip your favorite St. Patrick's Day festivities. Prepare this mouthwatering beef and Irish stout stew in the comfort and convenience of your Lance Camper to show your Irish pride this March 17. 

Beef and Irish Stout Stew

What you'll need:

  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil (divided)
  • 2 pounds lean beef stew meat (cut into 1-inch cubes)
  • 1 pinch salt and ground black pepper
  • 2 large onions (chopped)
  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper
  • 1 clove garlic (crushed)
  • 1 1/2 cups Irish stout beer (Guinness)
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 sprig fresh thyme
  • 2 cups carrot (chopped)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley for garnish (chopped)

Cooking instructions:

  1. Toss the beef cubes in 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil.
  2. In a separate bowl, stir the salt, pepper, flour and cayenne pepper together. Roll the beef in this dry mixture until coated thoroughly. 
  3. Heat the rest of the oil in a Dutch oven or deep skillet on medium-high heat.
  4. Add the beef into the oil and cook until it's browned on all sides. Stir in the onions and garlic and saute. 
  5. Stir a small amount of water into the tomato paste to dilute it. Pour the tomato paste into the pan and continue stirring. 
  6. Reduce the heat to medium and cook, while covered, for 5 minutes.
  7. Pour 1/2 cup of Guinness into the pan. As it begins to boil, scrape the food from the bottom of the pan. This will add more flavor to your broth. 
  8. Pour the remainder of beer into the pan and stir in the carrots and thyme. 
  9. Cover the stew, reduce the heat to low, and let it simmer for 2 to 3 hours. Stir occasionally. 
  10. Taste the stew and adjust seasonings before serving. Garnish with parsley.
