I’m still reminiscing about our vacation to Ireland last month, especially the pint of Guinness and amazing food we had while there, and wanted to share my new favorite way to cook with Guinness: Slow Cooker Brisket with Guinness Sauce. Sadly, this recipe wasn’t quite ready for you on St. Patrick’s Day, but better late than never … and even better tasty than on time! This recipe has a gentle tang with a delicious smoky taste from the beer, and if you cook low and slow in the crockpot, you can’t go wrong.
This is a great main dish for a large party, or for leftovers throughout the week. Trust me – I’m eating it now & wouldn’t steer you wrong… If I can eat it all week, I’m sure you’ll enjoy it too. The key to this recipe is to realize you should start it the morning of the day before you intend to serve it. Brisket can be a very tough piece of meat, so it needs plenty of time at low heat to slowly break down and turn tender. There’s relatively low investment in the preparation – just mix the sauce, stick it in the crockpot before you head off to work, transfer to the fridge that evening, and heat it up shortly before serving the next night. Easy right?
Are you not a Guinness-drinker and wondering what you would do with those remaining 5 bottles?
