This Guinness Beer Beef Chuck Roast Recipe is braised in a rich sauce with onions and carrots. After baking for 3 hours, it’s tender and ready to serve!
Friends, my husband and I are so in awe of our new surroundings. It’s like we’re little kids, only with an adult perspective. Travel, change, new adventures are so important, but you don’t have to go to the other side of the world to experience them.
With this recipe today, Guinness Pot Roast Stew, I think of Ireland (and cooking for St. Patricks Day), a place that is dear to my husband and my hearts, with fond memories of our visit to Dublin a few years back.
Back to reality, we find that daily, since we both work from home, it’s important to get out of those same 4 walls we’ve been staring at. We’re not in Dublin (where Paul’s parents immigrated from), even though we hope to visit there again one day, but we’re home here in central Oregon.
We drive to the city, put on our snowshoes, walk down by the river, take a hike to the mountains—places that are unfamiliar to us.
It’s all new, the rhythm and sounds, backdrops of blue and white nature. It does something new to our souls, freshens our spirits, and revives our dreams and goals. We find ourselves praying more, with more quiet in our lives.
The impossibles have a lighter spirit of possible, and this is important.
Paul and I have always been big dreamers. When we stare up into the sky (night skies are fabulous here!), it not only makes us think of our mortality, but it makes us dream big.
The fullness of life, the here and now. The closeness with our kids, our church, and our growing community.
It makes me take a quick breath, and then a sigh. Thank you God, for today!
Our family enjoyed this Guinness Pot Roast Stew earlier this week, a simple recipe that only takes a few minutes to prepare.
Put in the oven at 300 degrees, and walk away for 3 hours.
A rich sauce, with lovely espresso and Guinness beer, it truly reminds us of the Irish.
A reality for my husband, with his deep roots, served up on our dinner table, talked about, and shared with our kids.
