Irish Beef Stew with Guinness
DF / SF / 402 Cal in a 350g Portion / 287 Cal in a 250g Portion
Prime Wicklow beef is slow-cooked with loads of root vegetables.
An Irish Stew is as wholesome as it gets. Along with lots of carrots and turnips, we've dropped some Guinness Stout into the pot just to add even more flavour, and let it all stew for a couple of hours. We blast chill it and then let it develop overnight before snap freezing - because a stew is always better the next day, and that's how it comes to you.
