Dinner Harry Potter

Wizarding World Beef and Guinness Stew

Wizarding World Beef and Guinness Stew

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios has an amazing menu of traditional English foods. Everything we have eaten at the Three Broomsticks has been very good, especially given you are in a theme park. I’ve been working my way through making homemade versions of the menu items from the Three Broomsticks and today I bring you Wizarding World Beef and Guinness Stew.

The park version includes lamb. I’m not a huge fan of lamb so I left that out. You could always add some lamb if that is your preference. The menu describes the dish as “…slowly simmered with dark Guinness ale, carrots, potatoes, onions, and celery served in a sour dough bread bowl with a garden salad on the side.” This dish is a hearty meal with a rich gravy like sauce with tender vegetables. It’s turning into one of our favorite cold winter night meals.

  1. I love that this stew is served in a bread bowl. Getting to those soft well flavored bread interiors is like a treasure hunt and stew is not stew without a good bread. The use of Guinness just deepens the richness of the sauce and has that perfect way of tenderizing whatever it touches. I can only imagine the richness and flavor of every spoonful!
    Well done!
    P.S. That Three Broomsticks Restaurant sounds so interesting, Love Harry Potter too!

    This sounds delicious. How fun to work your way through Potter recipes. I have made stew before with Guinness for St. Pat’s day and it was wonderful.

  3. Beef and Guinness are a match made in heaven. Thanks for reminding me to make a stew with them soon.

    Having the stew in a bread bowl makes it seem so special! I’m sure it tastes fantastic just on its own, but you’ve turned it into a masterpiece. Who needs to go out to eat when you can have this at home?!
