It doesn’t have to be St. Patty’s Day to appreciate these Guinness recipes!
The smooth, malty flavor of Guinness will add depth and complexity to any dish. It makes hearty stews richer and chocolate desserts more divine.
The hardest part is knowing where to start. Should you add it to a classic like corned beef or try delectable brownies?
To help you out with this pickle, I gathered up my favorite Guinness recipes that do the Irish proud.
From bombalicious burgers to decadent ice cream, these are all the amazing and enticing ways you can cook with Guinness stout.
25 Easy Recipes to Make with Guinness Stout
1. Irish Beef and Guinness Stew
Guinness and beef stew are the perfect match. This stew is very rich and hearty, making it perfect for warming up on the chilliest of days.
Guinness enriches the broth while adding a deep flavor to the juicy beef chunk.
Note that complexity like this will take some time. So I say pop it in the slow cooker and go about your day. Come nightfall, dinner will be waiting.
2. Chocolate Guinness Truffles
Sweet confections like these sinfully good truffles are proof that baked goods and Guinness go hand-in-hand.
The fudgy texture of these dark chocolate truffles is dreamy, to say the least. They’re also surprisingly easy to pull together.
3. Guinness Chocolate Cake
Need a dessert for your St. Patty’s Day bash? Look no further than this decadent cake.
This chocolate cake is infused with Guinness and covered with a heavenly layer of cream cheese icing.
The key to keeping this cake from drying out is a dollop of sour cream. But don’t worry, it won’t thin out the batter and mess with the final texture.
4. Guinness Beef Pot Pie
I think every meat and potatoes lover will be on board with this savory pie.
The inside is packed with beef, potatoes, and more veggies that are slow-cooked in a Guinness beef broth.
Meanwhile, puff pastry tops it off with a beautiful flaky crust.
5. Guinness Floats
When life gets hectic, Guinness floats will cheer you right up. This easy-peasy recipe is as effortless as it gets.
Add a scoop or two of ice cream in a glass, then pour in the Guinness.
When it’s really been a day, I like to add a drizzle of chocolate and caramel sauce, then top it off with whipped cream.
6. Guinness Brownies
One of my favorite desserts with Guinness is these brownies.
They’ll have a fudgy texture you’ll want to sink your teeth into again and again.
And don’t even get me started about the coffee-flavored Guinness frosting.
These brownies are seriously to die for!
7. Guinness Beef Burgers
These Guinness burgers take the concept of a burger and a beer to a whole other level.
Ground beef marinates in a combination of Guinness and Worcestershire to make the ultimate patties.
For toppings, lettuce, tomato, red onion, and cheese is always a winner.
8. Irish Nachos
These Irish nachos are a supreme choice for both game days and St. Patrick’s day alike.
Unlike standard nachos, you’ll cover potato chips in sauerkraut and corned beef with a drizzle of Thousand Island dressing.
As for the cheese, there’s a double whammy of shredded cheese and a Guinness beer cheese sauce.
I have a very good hunch you’ve never had nachos quite like this!
9. Cheesy Guinness Beef Sliders
These beef sliders will be all the rage at your next party.
Soft buttery Hawaiian rolls are stacked with roast beef slices and oozing with cheese. There’s also a layer of mushrooms and onions cooked in Guinness.
As if that weren’t enough, it all gets a topping of a rich Guinness glaze.
10. Savoury Spiced Guinness Jelly
Let the toasting commence because you’ll want to gobble up this jelly every day for breakfast.
The combination of Guinness and spice give this apple jelly a more savory flavor. So it’s also great on sandwiches, too.
11. Classic Irish Guinness Rarebit
This toast is so simple and yet utterly genius at the same time.
You’ll mix Guinness, egg, and Worcestershire with cheese, then broil on a slice of bread.
This will make a prime addition to weekend brunches and even large dinner spreads.
12. Guinness and Cheddar Fondue
I love busting out this recipe when I’m entertaining friends.
The Guinness infused gooey cheese is robust, creamy, and delightfully spiced.
For dipping, cubes of bread are the top-choice. You can also mix things up and put out a smorgasbord of dippers like broccoli, potato wedges, and meatballs.
Either way, it’s always a blast when you have a hot pot of beer cheese on the table.
13. Guinness Marinated Steaks and Sauce
Grab yourself a traditional Irish cocktail because this is a steak and adult beverage sort of dinner.
The Guinness marinade is a robust, hearty sauce that’s the perfect match for a prime cut sirloin steak.
These steaks are best over the grill. However, if it’s too cold to be outside, you could also sear the steaks on the stove and finish them off in the oven.
14. Baileys Dark Chocolate Guinness Bread
Between the Baileys, Guinness, and dark chocolate, this bread is like kryptonite for chocoholics.
And it gets even better because the top of the bread gets a drizzle of a Baileys glaze.
The hardest part is deciding whether to serve this with a cold glass of milk or a frothy pint of Guinness.
15. Guinness Irish Soup
French onion soup gets a makeover the Irish way with this seven-ingredient recipe.
Guinness is a simple and efficient way to make the broth more robust. Add a thick piece of cheesy toast on top, and you’ll have a super scrumptious bowl.
Oh, and if you really want to make this Irish, an Irish cheese like Dubliner is a yummy choice.
16. Guinness and Irish Cheddar Macaroni and Cheese
There are a ton of great mac and cheeses out there, but this one is killer.
It’s a carb-loaded cheesy feast of tender macaroni noodles drowning in a creamy Guinness cheese sauce.
There’s even a sprinkle of breadcrumbs on top for a little more texture.
17. Guinness Chocolate Poke Cake
Chocolate lovers, feast your eyes on your new obsession. This cake is everything you want your chocolate dessert to be and then some.
It’s got a triple whammy of Guinness so you get more malt chocolate notes throughout the cake.
My favorite part, though, is that the poke holes get filled with the Guinness chocolate filling so each bite is purely sublime.
18. Slow Cooker Corned Beef Tacos
This Mexican Irish fusion will be your new favorite way to make beef tacos. They’re savory, bold, and remarkably fresh all at the same time.
Plus, it has a double helping of Guinness both in the cream sauce and corned beef.
Call your friends and pick up a six-pack of Guinness because this recipe is reason enough to celebrate.
19. Guinness Pulled Pork
If you’re going to do pulled pork, do it like this.
You’ll rub pork shoulder with spices, then slow cook it for a day in Guinness.
Once it’s done, you’ll have an exquisitely flavorful and fall-off-the-bone tender pork.
This pulled pork makes for bang-up sliders and bomb tacos. I even like it served on top of the Guinness mac and cheese.
20. Guinness-Milk Chocolate Ice Cream
Sometimes, it’s good to be an adult, and this is one of those times.
The addition of this classic Irish stout to the ever-popular chocolate ice cream is an award-winning combination.
Help yourself to a double scoop. Or better yet, turn it into a Guinness float. You’ve earned it.
21. Corned Beef with Guinness and Cabbage
There are so many phenomenal St. Patrick’s Day recipes, it can be hard to decide on which ones to make.
However, if you want something more traditional, go with this.
Corned beef and cabbage are the epitome of Irish cuisine. Add Guinness to the equation, and things will get even more festive.
22. Guinness Spiked Irish Chili
This Irish chili is rich, savory, bold, and extremely satiating.
Each bowl is brimming with perfectly spiced ground beef. There are even some kidney beans, crushed tomatoes, and bell peppers to give it more oomph.
Like all good chilis, don’t forget to add some extra fixings on top.
23. Corned Beef Sandwich
Here’s a tasty Irish sandwich to add to your routine.
You’ll take corned beef and stack it between rye bread with sauerkraut and pickles. Then for the dipping, there’s a rich Guinness sauce.
Do yourself a favor, and make it a double-decker. This savory sandwich is too good not to indulge.
24. Guinness Gingerbread Cake with Brown Butter Glaze
Thinking about branching out this holiday season with a new Christmas dessert? Here’s my top recommendation.
This cake is all about holiday spices, Guinness, and a kiss of molasses.
Meanwhile, the glaze is an elegant concoction featuring brown butter and vanilla paste.
25. Irish Guinness Brown Bread
There are so many ways to enjoy this Guinness brown bread.
You can slather it with Guinness jelly, use it for a corned beef sandwich, or dip it in the hearty Irish stew.
One thing is for sure, the toasty malty notes of Guinness is a winner for earthy brown bread.
