“Recipe for Irish stew: Drink the Guinness, forget about the stew” (joke)

Irish stew is a classic Irish dish, but there are many ways it can be made. Some recipes include Guinness stout.

A joke Irish stew recipe is:

“Get some meat, some potatoes and a lot of Guinness stout. Drink all of the stout. Forget about the stew.”

The joke has been cited in print since at least 1999.


Wikipedia: Irish stew
Irish stew (Irish: stobhach / Stobhach Gaelach) is any variety of meat-and-root vegetables stew native to Ireland. As in all traditional folk dishes, the exact recipe is not consistent from time or place to place. Common ingredients include lamb, or mutton (mutton is used as it comes from less tender sheep over a year old, is fattier, and has a stronger flavour, and was generally more common in less-affluent times) as well as potatoes, onions, and parsley. It may sometimes also include carrots. Irish stew is also made with kid goat.
