Karl’s Guinness Beef Stew II

We were invited to a potluck this weekend and I decided—since it is close to St. Patrick’s Day—to do an Irish beef stew. I have posted this recipe before, but I am really incapable of doing the same dish the same way twice.

Karl’s Guinness Beef Stew

I decided to do a beef stew for my Sunday’s dinner. I have posted a beef Bourguignon before, so I wanted to do something different this time. Many cuisines have some form of beef stews, so there are numerous potential recipes from which to choose. Flipping through the possibilities, I finally settled on a Irish Guinness based stew.

Karl’s Savory No Salt Beef Stew

In truth, there is no such thing as truly no-salt cooking, many vegetables contain just a bit of salt all on their own. This stew is just as low salt as I can make it. Jan is visiting her sick brother this weekend. She decided to bring him some frozen home cooked meals as a mitzvah. He has recently been put on a super low salt diet. Many of the ways I would usually use to boost the flavor of a stew were right out—no soy sauce, anchovy paste, Worcestershire sauce, even commercial tomato paste—all have large amounts of salt.

Karl’s Beef Bourguignon

America’s Test Kitchen sends random episodes of their show to my email. The last one was for Beef Bourguignon. When I was thinking about what to make for Sunday, this seemed like a kind of dish that I had not made for a while.

Karl’s Beef Stew with Porcini and Ruby Port

Adapted from a Dirk Niepoort recipe

Jan is meeting her knitting group for their yearly holiday knitting and gift exchange party, so no fancy Sunday dinner this week. Eilene is off to have dinner with friends, so it is just Jan and I for dinner tonight. Jan has requested beef stew because it makes such good leftover for weekday lunches.
