Important Note For Vegetarians And Vegans

Guinness contains fish gelatin so it's not suitable for Vegetarians and Vegans.


Want To Try These Recipes But Not A Guinness Beer Fan?

OK, I know it's hard to believe but there are some people that do not like the taste of Guinness! If you're one, simply replace the Guinness with Ale (such as Bass) - not quite the same flavor but it still works!

If you must, replace the Guinness with beef stock....

Welsh Rarebit photo by Remy Sharp

Welsh Rarebit is grilled cheese on toast. But here's an Irish version of this classic dish.

Here's the recipe:


  • 2 tablespoons of butter
  • 2 tablespoons of plain flour.
  • 1 teaspoon of mustard
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1/2 cup milk.
  • 1/2 cup Guinness
  • 1 cup Cheddar cheese grated
  • Salt and pepper.


  1. Melt butter and stir in the flour. mix well so it's all smooth
  2. Cook on a low heat until it turns slightly brown.
  3. Remove from heat and slowly add the milk.
  4. Put back on medium/low heat and stir until the liquid thickens.
  5. Add mustard, honey and the beer.
  6. Cook on a medium heat for 2-3 minutes.
  7. Turn down the heat to low, add the cheese and stir until it melt.
  8. Spread over a piece of toast and brown under the grill

French Mustard (used in Welsh Rarebit)

Tarragon Mustard Moutarde A L'Estragon, Fallot, 7 oz, One
Tarragon Mustard Moutarde A L'Estragon, Fallot, 7 oz, One
I usually simply use Coleman's French Mustard as it has a wonderfully smooth flavor and texture, but occasionally I go for a little more exotic mustard. The one listed here not only is wonderful in the above recipe but is also excellent in a sandwich. The addition of Tarragon gives any recipe a nice flavor in addition to the mild flavors of the mustard. It is easy to cook with and very refined. I find that this doesn't overpower the flavor of the cheese and Guinness - you can use a stornger mustard such as an English mustard, but I find you taste more of the mustard and less of the cheese.

Guinness Garlic Mushrooms Recipe

I've always loved mushrooms especially when cooked in Garlic. The combination of the flavor and texture is amazing and they are a great compliment to many meats. I have also used them as a starter and find that they are a great beginning to a meal.

The good thing about the recipe is that it's very simple and adaptable. As long as you have mushrooms and butter then you have a starter. You can add your own herbs and spices to the recipe, or even remove the garlic if required.

Here's the recipe:


1 pounds of mushrooms (button are good, but you can use any)

One small onion. (chopped)

2 cloves of garlic (chopped)

1oz butter

pint of Guinness.

Salt and pepper

cup cream (optional)

cup Beef stock

Mustard (optional)

Flour (to thicken)

Cooking instructions

Clean and chop your mushrooms in slices

On low heat, melt the butter and fry the onions and garlic until they are soft.

Add the mushrooms, salt and pepper and cook for 1 minute on low.

Add the beer and increase the heat to medium, cook until the volume is reduced by half.

Stirring constantly, add the cream and stock and cook on low

To thicken: mix the flour with water until smooth and slowly stir into mushrooms.

Add Mustard (I use French normally), but it's optional!

Serving Suggestions

I use this as a starter, adding it to toast, or simply having this with some crusty bread. It can be used as a great topper to a steak.

If beer is liquid bread, the guinness is liquid cake. -Naveen Kumar

Guinness In Main Courses


Guinness Burgers Recipes

Burgers are quick, tasty and require minimum preparation and clean-up. If you don't like the bitterness the Guinness gives, use milder ale or just simply leave out the Guinness.


1 pound chopped or minced beef (doesn't have to be that lean)

1/4 cup Guinness Draught beer

2 teaspoons mustard (I find Coleman's French mustard adds a nice taste, and English mustard adds a kick)

1/4 teaspoon ground herbs (your choice - I use rosemary)

2 cloves garlic, minced (optional)

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

2 tablespoons unsalted butter or cooking oil (Only used if frying burgers)

1/4 cup finely minced onions (can be cooked separately or added into the patties)

Cooking instructions

Mix everything well, except the butter.

Form into 4 hamburger's patties (about 1/2 an inch thick).

To fry your burgers: melt the butter in a skillet (cast iron really is the best) on medium and cook the burgers the way you like them (mine are always well cooked).

On the grill: place on medium heated grill and cook the way you like them.

Garnish your burgers with your favorite toppings

Serving Suggestions:

Garnish the burgers as you like - I add a tomato, the onions and a slice of cheese and then place between a slightly toasted hamburger roll.

You can have these with chips (fries), with a salad or with mashed potatoes and gravy.

English Mustard (used in burger recipe)

Colman's Wet Mustard 4oz
Colman's Wet Mustard 4oz
This is a decent flavored mustard that has a decent bite to it. It adds a nice kick to any of the meals included in this site. Any Coleman's mustard is good, I particularly like the French Mustard, but Coleman's English mustard is better for beef dishes. I find that the French mustard adds a nice flavor to the burger, while the English mustard gives the burger a nice unexpected kick.

Guinness Irish Stew Recipe

Irish Stew: comfort food at its best. Adding ale or Guinness makes the meat more tender and gives the gravy a richer taste. You can use beer in many other stew recipes as well (beef, veal and even pork).

It's a classic dish and you will find all sorts of variations all over the world. Often, recipes have been pass down for generations by mothers. Stew is easy to make and a complete meal in itself.


2 pounds lean beef.

3 Tablespoons oil

2 Tablespoons flour

Salt and pepper.

2 large chopped onions.

1 large clove garlic crushed.

2 Tablespoons tomato puree combined with 4 tablespoons water (you can replace this with any Tomato Sauce, even ketchup).

1-1/4 cups Guinness.

2 cups chopped carrots. If you like you can add mushrooms or other veggies.

2 cups of chopped potatoes (optional).

Thyme and Oregano.

Cooking instructions

Cut the beef in 1-1/2 to 2 inch cubes. Remove most of the fat.

In a bowl, mix the flour, salt and pepper.

Mix the beef with 1 tablespoon of oil, until all the pieces are well covered.

Cover the beef with the flour mixture.

Heat the remaining oil on medium-high heat and brown the meat.

Add onions, garlic and tomato and simmer five minutes.

Remove the meat from the frying pan and place in a casserole dish.

Add a little bit of Guinness beer to the pan and boil.

Pour the contents of the pan, the remaining Guinness, the carrots (and other veggies if you wish) and the potatoes over the meat.

Simmer on the stove, at low heat, for 2 to 3 hours.

Serving Suggestions:

There are many ways you can eat this wonderful stew:

In a bowl with a dollup of Sour Cream.

Mixed with some Egg Noodles.

With Mashed Potatoes.

Guinness Pot Roast Recipe

Pot roast is a simple yet effective way of using a lessor quality joint of beef. It also is a quick and simple meal.

It's not much different than normal pot roast, but the gravy has a more bitter and full flavor, and the meat seemed a little more tender. This really is a great way to cook a family meal quickly and easily.

Note: If you don't have a crock-pot, you can do this on the stove on a very low heat or in a very low oven.

Here's the recipe:


4-5 pound beef rump roast. (Any roast will do, doesn't have to be top quality).

1 Tablespoons oil

2 Tablespoons flour (to thicken).

Salt and pepper.

2 large chopped onions.

1 large clove garlic crushed. (optional)

1-1/4 cups Guinness.

2 cups chopped carrots.

6 cups of chopped potatoes

Your favorite herbs ( bay leaves and oregano are good).

Cooking instructions

Brown all sides of the roast in a pan.

Coat the beef with the flour - this will thicken the gravy as it cooks.

Add beef and Guinness and herbs together in a crockpot and cook on low for about an hour (Note - the amount of Guinness depends on the size of the meat. I tend to bring the level to about an inch up beef - the juices will add to the liquid as it cooks. You can add some stock as well to make it less bitter).

Add the onions, garlic, potatoes and carrots.

Continue to heat in crock-pot for several hours - I find the longer it cooks, the better.

Crock-Pot 6.5-Quart, Programmable Touchscreen Slow Cooker, Silver, SCVT650-PS
Crock-Pot 6.5-Quart, Programmable Touchscreen Slow Cooker, Silver, SCVT650-PS
A crock-pot (or slow cooker) is an essential tool for the kitchen. I like them because you can prepare a meal quickly and let it cook all day. This one is large (6-quart), it has oval stoneware pot that can be removed - this allows you to use it on the stove, in the oven or in the crock-pot. It also allows you to take the food straight to the table. It has a digitial timer, and several modes that allow for different heat settings - the most useful being 'keep warm'. It is large so may cause storage problems for some. This really is a useful tool for pot-roast - it can also be used for the stew recipe too - it adds a touch of elegance by allowing you to transfer the dish directly to the table - carving the meat in the dish is an interesting way to engage your guests while serving.
Guinness BBQ chicken wings
Guinness BBQ chicken wings

Guinness BBQ Chicken Recipe

For this recipe, you have to marinade the chicken so I'd prepare the chicken the night before you plan to BBQ. Generally I find that the longer you marinade, the more of the flavor is infused into the chicken.

Here's the recipe:


1 teaspoon salt

3 lbs of chicken: you can use any parts, I prefer breasts but wings and legs are great too.

1 bottle of Guinness

1 tablespoon dark brown sugar

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

1/4 tablespoon honey

tablespoon of syrup - the thicker the better.

1/8 teaspoon curry powder / chili powder

Herbs and spices of your choice (I used a little sage).

Cooking instructions

Rub salt all over the chicken and place side by side in a dish. Make sure you don't pile them up.

Mix all the ingredients together and pour over the chicken.

Cover your dish put in the fridge overnight. try to turn your chicken pieces at least once.

Remove the chicken from the marinade and cook on a low BBQ. For about 20 minutes,regularly, turn and brush the chicken with the marinade until it is cooked.

Serving Suggestions:

You can eat the leftovers cold, in a salad or as a sandwich. If using chicken breast, cut them and cubes and make skewers with onions and bell peppers.

Shepherd's Pie
Shepherd's Pie

Guinness Shepherd's Pie Recipe

Traditional Shepherd's pie uses lamb; this gives it a distinct flavor that melds well with the gravy, mashed potato and vegetables. You can vary the recipe by using ground beef if you wish. This is another 'all in one' meal.

This is really another feel good recipe, that is hearty and filling but full of flavor and taste.

Here's the recipe:


1 - 2 pounds ground lamb (you can use beef too if you prefer)

1/2 pound of carrots

1/2 pound of frozen peas.

Herbs of your choice.

2 cups of beef stock

1 medium onion

Olive oil

1 or 2 bottles Guinness (if you use one, then increase stock)

2 tablespoons tomato paste

2 cups cheddar cheese (optional)

3 pounds potatoes

1/4- 1/2 cup milk

1 stick butter

Salt and pepper

Cooking instructions

Heat oven to 375 degrees F.

Use potatoes, milk and butter to make mashed potatoes (It's actually better if you make them a little lumpy, and even slightly undercook the potatoes).

Brown the chopped lamb and drain the excess fat.

Add 1 bottle of Guinness to chopped lamb and simmer until liquid is reduced.

Add tomato paste.

Place in casserole dish.

Fry the onions until slightly translucent (you should also add the carrots - you might want to pre-cook the carrots to ensure they are soft after baking)

Mix the herbs, carrots, peas and onions together with the lamb.

Add the remaining Guinness and stock so it just covers meat and vegetables.

Add the mashed potatoes on top - use a fork to build 'ridges' in the top and to ensure the meat is sealed below the potato.

If required sprinkle cheese on top.

Bake for 20-25 minutes.

Some may find this a little bitter, so vary the amount of Guinness and stock used. You can vary the quantities to control how much gravy you want, and can also add some flour to thicken.

You can also add a little kick by adding some English mustard to the meat.

Guinness Recipes for Desserts

Guinness Ice-Cream Recipe

Many years ago I tried Guinness ice-cream from a store and loved it - it was a St Patrick's day special edition. It took me a while, but I eventually found the recipe online. This is one of the hardest recipes to master. It's easy to do, but to get the right consistency and flavor is incredibly difficult. I attempted this recipe four or five times before getting it right.

The only thing I can say is that it was worth the wait - trial and error really paid off.

Here's the recipe:


12 ounces Guinness.

2 cups heavy cream.

2 cups whole milk (2% can be used but the ice-cream won't be as good!).

3/4 cup sugar.

1/2 teaspoon of vanilla essence (this is tricky, it really depends on your taste).

6 egg yolks.

Cooking instructions

Place Guinness in a pan and simmer for about five to ten minutes (until it's about 3/4 its original volume).

Slowly combine the cream, milk and sugar in another pan and add the vanilla essence.

Bring to a slight boil (be careful not to boil too much) and remove from heat.

Beat the eggs and slowly begin to whisk in the cream mixture.

Slowly heat the mixture for about five minutes until it thickens (again this is tricky).

Remove from heat and strain into a clean container. (A good tip here is to cover in cling film, ensuring that the film touches the surface - this ensure a skin doesn't form - if it does, just remove the skin before the final stage).

Chill for 2 hours (the mixture, not you!!!)

Whisk in the Guinness reduction and blend well.

You can either simply freeze it at this stage, or use an ice-cream machine. (I don't have the machine, but find that the ice-cream is pretty good anyway).

Hand whisk (used in icecream recipe)

Norpro Balloon Wire Whisk Set of 3 Stainless Steel Stir/Mix/Beat 6" /8"/ 10"
Norpro Balloon Wire Whisk Set of 3 Stainless Steel Stir/Mix/Beat 6" /8"/ 10"
You can use an electric mixer with this recipe, but I find that a hand whisk gives a far better result - the icecream has more texture when mixed by hand, and while the flavor doesn't change, the texture does add to the enjoyment.

Guinness Brownies Recipe

Brownies and chocolate cakes can be bake with Guinness! Follow the recipe below exactly as it is. Then, next time you can adjust the amount of Guinness in the batter to best suit your taste.


1 cup flour

3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

6 tablespoons butter (its best to leave this out of the fridge for a while to make it easy to use) + a bit to butter your baking pan (if needed)

8 ounces dark bittersweet chocolate,

3/4 cup chocolate chips (any variety - you could add nuts as well here)

4 large eggs

1 cup sugar

1-1/4 cups Guinness

1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Cooking instructions

Heat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Buttered a 9 x 13 baking pan (or use a silicone one. Personally I like my glass baking pan)

In a bowl, mix the flour with the cocoa powder and the salt.

Melt butter, bittersweet chocolate and chocolate chips together . You can do that in the microwave. mix from time to time. Low intensity.

Beat eggs until fluffy and add melted chocolate - continue to beat until well mixed.

Mix in the flour mixture, and the Guinness

Add a cup of chocolate chips on top.

Bake for about 25 to 30 minutes in the center of the oven.

Other Guinness Recipes

The Pink Panther with Guinness

The Pink Panther

There are many that will call this sacrilegious, but there are many different ways to drink Guinness - the obvious way is to simply enjoy a good old pint of the black nectar. The problem for a lot of people is that Guinness is simply too bitter and too heavy. There are quite a few ways to make it lighter and still be enjoyable. There is also one that is favored by the ladies. This is the Pink Panther. Not only does it have a far sweeter taste than traditional Guinness, but it also has a wonderful pink color!

Here's the recipe - it's simple:


1/2 pint of Guinness.

1/2 pint of hard cider.

A dash of blackcurrant


Pour the half pint of Guinness in the traditional manner.

Slowly pour in the hard cider, swirling the glass gently to mix - careful here not to be too vigorous as you'll end up with a lot of foam.

Add a dash of blackcurrant juice - add as much or as little as you wish.

You can stir if you want, to get a nice pink color through the drink.

Guinness beer milkshake
Guinness beer milkshake

Guinness Milkshake

The flavor is actually surprisingly good - however it must be noted that this is an alcoholic beverage as the Guinness is not heated.

Here's the recipe - it's simple:


1/2 pint of Guinness.

1/4 pint of vanilla ice cream.

1/4 pint of chocolate ice cream.

A dash of peppermint flavoring.

Whipping Cream.

Chocolate to Granish.

Sprig of Mint.


Mix the ice cream, Guinness and peppermint flavoring in a blender and pour into a cold glass.

Decorate with whipped cream, chocolate and sprig of Mint.

You can vary the amount of beer to ice cream.

Some More Mouth Watering Ideas - For All Occasions

Guinness bread, Guinness cheesecake, duck confit with Guinness, fish and chips and much more.

The leaders of the big beer companies meet for a drink. The president of Budweiser orders a Bud, the CEO of Miller gets a Miller, the head of Coors orders a Coors, and so on. Until it's Arthur Guinness's turn. He orders a soda.

"Why didn't you order a Guinness?" everyone asks.

Guinness replies, "if you guys aren't having beer, then neither will I."

Tell me, did I convince you that Guinness makes great recipes?

So, did I?

I never knew that it wasn't considered a vegetarian food -- hadn't heard of isinglass being added to it. That's good to know, since my daughter-in-law is a vegetarian (but then again, she wouldn't be eating my stew anyway!).

      I was checking backlinks on some of my own lenses and found this. I know my dear hubby would say yum to all of these recipes. He likes the occasional pint of Guinness in the evening.

      As a beer, Guinness is a bit strong for me. But, your recipe for the Guinness Burger has my taste buds working. I have included it a poll on my lens "Who Has The Best Burger Recipe On Squidoo?"

      Enjoyed the lens. Reminds me that I haven't drunk a Guinness for ages! My wife used to make a rich fruit Guinness cake. Must ask her if she's still got the recipe because it was delicious.

      As a newbie I'm impressed, especiallyl like your right-floating index and the picture "this blog needs you" and the call-outs really help with the readability. You obviously know what you're doing! Thanks!

      Oh dear, I never knew that Guinness wasn't suitable for vegetarians. I'm a veggie and have drunk the odd small Guinness. Thanks for the info. Otherwise some lovely recipes and a super lens.

      My "Guinness is good for you" fridge magnet is looking at me while I write this! Can't wait to try these yummy-looking recipes! I'm currently experimenting with Guinness in my family's BBQ sauce recipe - I'll let you know when it has been perfected :)

      Guinness Irish Stew, Pot Roast, Garlic Mushrooms, Brownies...incredible! I have got to try these. Not only do they sound delicious, but the recipes look relatively simple, even for someone like me who is cooking challenged!

      Those recipes do sound good. And I agree with another comment...I never knew there were so many recipes that used Guiness. I do like the borders you used. I am going to have to learn that.

      Great lens, 5***** You did a great job on this, I love Guinness too! You are only the 2nd person I have come across who seems to know the difference between Shepherds and Cottage Pie (ie: Lamb or Beef). I never did know growing up. Love the beer joke too - agree totally, Budweiser isn't beer... I will have to try adding Guinness to the pot roasts, should give it a nice strong flavor.

      I make a wonderful Corned Beef with Guinness. My hubby also makes bread with it. A couple days ago, he made homemade tamales with the meat cooked in Guinness. As you can tell, we're big fans! Great lens

      Guinness ice cream? That sounds good. I make Guinness Beef Stew every winter, huge hit. I've also had Guinness bread, which I believe they sell on Amazon in a dry mix. Great work!

      Hm, I don't like beer in its drinkable form (yes, I know, that's strange), but these recipes sound yummy. Well ... I'm not sure about the ice cream, either, but I'll try it. Pass the spoon, please.
