Wagyu Beef Stew with Guinness Beer
It wouldn't be St. Patrick's Day without a little Guinness, right? In addition to the pint you're sipping, you can indulge in this belly-warming stew with flavorful Wagyu beef for added richness. We recommend using A5 Miyazakigyu Wagyu Premium Loin Beef Steak Cubes for a slightly sweet umami flavor that plays well off the beer's malty and subtly bitter notes. This recipe from Gourmet Food World makes for a wonderful entrée or appetizer depending on how much you dish out.
- 2.5 lbs Wagyu beef stew meat diced
- 4 tbsp. clarified butter
- 1 large Valencia white onion or sweet onion, chopped
- 3 raw strips of bacon, chopped into ¼-inch strips
- 2 tbsp. tomato paste
- 2 tbsp. all-purpose flour
- 11.2 oz Guinness Extra Stout beer
- 3 cups beef stock
- 6 small yellow potatoes, washed, peeled and uncut
- 1 tbsp. dried marjoram
- ½ tbsp. dried oregano
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Hearty bread
- Heat a large pot or Dutch oven and melt the clarified butter on medium-high. Add the Wagyu stew meat and brown, stirring to make sure all sides are cooking evenly. Remove the meat from the pot, leaving the butter and oil drippings.
- Toss in the onions, bacon, tomato paste and flour to the pot, stirring with a wooden spoon to make sure the onions don't burn. Once the onions become transparent (about three to five minutes), reduce fire to low and simmer. Add the beer and beef stows slowly to prevent flare-ups. Continue to stir until combined.
- Toss in the browned beef stew meat, plus add the potatoes, marjoram and oregano, then salt and pepper to taste. Cover and continue to simmer for two to three hours or until beef is tender and pulls apart with a fork.
