Hey folks, I think I might have the perfect OH. For real. An example of his awesomeness is a few days back I call him up and whine about, wanting a stew for supper, wanting a stew for the blog and well generally whine about feeling cold.

He sweetly listened before sending me off for a pedi mani session and a brunch treat.

A few hours later, I come home to a gorgeous smelling pot full of beef stew simmering away. ‘Tada’, he announces – ‘slow cooked Guinness anchovy beef and bean stew for your blog and for supper’. Perfect right?

Beef and Guinness Stew is a traditional Irish dish that is warm, comforting and oh-so-satisfying. This recipe is a bit of a departure from the classic recipe, and I just loooooove the complex depth of flavour from the addition of the anchovy.

Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day by serving up this Slow Cooked Guinness Anchovy Beef and Bean Stew. You will thoroughly enjoy paring it with some crusty country bread or Irish soda bread. And a pint of Guinness of course. Just the thing for a proper Irish celebration!

    Love the sound of this stew and your hubby! Although I can’t complain because mine loves to cook and is really good at it! He’s Sicilian and makes lots of fab seafood dishes! Anchovies is the secret ingredient to many Italian recipes, not just seafood ones. It adds a wonderful umami flavour without actually making the dish taste fishy!

  2. 5 stars
    A big bowl of this and the potato mash you have suggested is comfort food at its finest! Your hubby sounds like a keeper!! Cheers

  3. This is a very different stew with the anchovies in it. I have never been a fan of anchovies, but maybe I can get hubby to make it. He does a lot of the cooking in our home.

  4. I really love a good stew in the cooler weather and what a great thing to come home and smell 🙂

  5. 5 stars
    I love a good hearty stew this time of year! Hubby just looked over my shoulder and took a look and asked what day this week we are having this stew! I need to make this one ASAP!

  6. 5 stars
    Such a very, very good looking stew. I use anchovies as a “secret ingredient” sometimes, too.

  7. Wow he does sound pretty awesome! A* due to him for this one! A hearty stew in winter is always such a winner in our house too (I just need to convince my own OH to make one now I guess!)
