In honor of St. Patrick's Day, we've gathered a few recipes featuring—what else—Guinness!
There's more to St. Patty's Day than shamrocks and pots of gold. We're bringing you recipes featuring a famous Irish stout
that has become beloved by the masses. Cheers to celebrating this decidedly jolly holiday to the fullest.
Our first recipe is mouth-watering Guinness Lamb Stew, a favorite of Cooking Light Test Kitchen Professional Robin Bashinsky. He explains, "The touch of mustard at the end adds a little tangy punch that sets off the robust flavors of the hearty, slowly simmered broth."

This hearty stew, layered with complex flavors from caraway seeds, sweet raisins, and full-bodied Guinness Draught pays homage
to the best of Irish cooking. Food Editor, Ann Taylor Pittman, promises “This meaty stew is so good, I sopped up every drop
of the gravy-like broth with bread.”

Historically, the phrase "black and tan" referred to the much-reviled auxiliary force of English soldiers sent to Ireland
to suppress the Irish rebels after the 1916 Easter Rising. Eventually, a much-loved drink made with half Guinness Stout and
half Harp Lager assumed the name, and now this two-toned brownie (with the addition of Guinness) shares it.

We enjoyed this hearty stew with beef, but cubed leg of lamb would work, as well. For robust Irish flavor, use Guinness Stout
or another stout for the beer that's specified in the recipe.

This meat dish is a specialty at Simpatica Dining Hall. You can prepare and refrigerate the salsa verde up to two weeks in
advance. It's good with chicken or fish, too, or simply atop grilled bread as an appetizer. Serve the beef and salsa over
mashed potatoes instead of toasted bread, if desired.
