*Note: Many consider Guinness to be non-vegetarian/non-vegan due to the company’s reported use of isinglass, a fish product, to remove extra yeast. Guinness maintains that its products are animal-product-free, but admits a possibility that minute quantities of isinglass might be carried into the beer. If this is a concern, try Samuel Smith Oatmeal Stout or another vegan beer.

Just in time for St. Patty’s day feasting. Serve up with a bit of rye bread and you’re all set!

 Guinness Stew

1 batch of seitan (to make from scratch, see here)

3 each, carrots and stalks of celery, chopped

2 cloves of garlic, minced

1 onion, chopped

2 potatoes, chopped

1-2 bottles of Guinness, depending on taste

1.5 cups broth

2 tbsp. steak sauce or soy sauce

salt and pepper to taste

1 tbsp. thyme or mixed seasoning
Saute seitan in olive oil until browned. Add in steak sauce or soy sauce and turn to coat. Remove from heat and set aside. Meanwhile, saute celery, carrot, potato, onion, garlic for about 5 minutes. Combine the rest of the ingredients (sans seitan) and stir. Add in seitan and simmer until thickened, about 45 minutes.

  1. Hey Candice,
    I've cooked a bunch of great recipes from your Yogic Kitchen blog. I really appreciate them. I pull one out when I need to spice up the weekly routine. Thanks for the lovely offerings.

    Delish. Before I went gluten-free I made this (very similar recipe) and loved it! I wonder if I could sub soy chunks ( for the wheat protein seitan here. Hrm! Thanks for posting!

    Guinness is no longer Irish. The company became Diageo in 1997 with headquarters in London.

    My wife makes a meat substitute that has no gluten or soy in it. It's made from tree nuts and is killer. I'll poke around for the recipe. I think it would go very well in Guinness stew.
