Gabure French Bean Stew

Gabure French Bean Stew

When I first heard of Gabure French Bean Stew, I just knew I had to try to make it myself. I can get pretty excited by a recipe, even if it’s for something I’ve never heard of or tried before.

Beef & Guinness Stew Pies

Beef & Guinness Pies

The BEST Beef & Guinness Stew. One glorious concoction that rides the line between the richness of the stew & the bitterness of the Guinness...perfectly balanced.

This Beef & Guinness Stew is a wondrous thing – a rich, heady stew that rides the fine line between the richness of the gravy and slight bitterness of the Guinness; a stew that balances so closely neither sweet or bitter is detected; instead all melds into one glorious and delicious concoction. Even better, it’s topped off with puff pastry! (If you want to, and I know you do! Or maybe that’s just me?) Let’s just say if you do, you’ll look like a genius when you bring this to the table!
