“Good humor comes from the kitchen”! You know that is an Irish saying.

There are so many comforting Irish quotes pertaining to good ole’ comfort food and eating. The Irish are indeed a lovely nationality and the country side of Ireland is one that will forever me etched in my mind.

Today, given it is St. Patrick’s day my husband and I wanted to make Guinness beef stew in the pressure cooker.

If you missed my corned beef recipe you can check that out here.

So enough said… another quote from the dear old Irish is a stew boiled is a stew spoiled.

 That is the beauty of cooking in the pressure cooker, nothing ever boils. It simply simmers up all the beautiful flavors that food truly does have.

This wonderful Guinness stew does not only have to be for St. Patrick’s day, obviously. It’s just an all year round tasty, healthy and delicious stew. My husband got a little creative on the veggie platter. The vegetable go in last. They only take about 6-7 minutes, and are completely cooked and so delicious.

Pin it, make it, ohhhh so good!
