Braised Beef In Irish Stout

If you’re looking for a winter warmer, or some comfort food; then it’s hard to beat this classic Braised Beef in Irish Stout. After simmering for 1½ hours, the meat will be melt in the mouth, and the reduced sauce will be deliciously rich. Keep things traditional by serving with Colcannon, or serve with mashed potato, and seasonal vegetables.
