We are heading into one of my favorite times of the year….. St. Patrick’s Day! There is just something special about all of the Irish inspired meals, I just can’t get enough. One of my favorites, is this Guinness Glaze…..
No, I still do not drink Guinness, but I love cooking with it! When Bennigans left Cedar Rapids, I could no longer get my favorite Guinness Burger…..the horror!! So I set out to recreate my own at home. Let me tell you, that was a pretty simple task, there are only 3 ingredients in this sweet and tangy sauce…..
I have made it with Extra Stout as well as Draught, and I personally prefer Extra Stout. It gives it a deeper, richer flavor. Place all of your ingredients into a saucepan and bring to a boil…..
Reduce heat and simmer for 25 minutes, or until reduced by about half…..
It will still appear very thin, don’t worry, it thickens a bit as it cools…..
This glaze is perfect on burgers, just take a look at this Guinness Burger with bacon, cheddar cheese, and onion rings…..
I have also used this glaze on shrimp at a St. Patrick’s Day party, but they were gone before any photos could be taken!
Since these were some of my first blog posts, I will gradually be going through and redoing the photos to make them a bit more appetizing. :) If you would like more Irish Recipes, just click on “Irish” under categories. I also have a HUGE St. Patrick’s Day & Irish pinterest board for more inspiration:
|Cook time||30 minutes|
- 12 ounce bottle Guinness Extra Stout beer
- 1 1/4 cup brown sugar (packed)
- 1/2 cup honey
|Pour all ingredients into a medium saucepan and combine with a whisk.|
|Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and simmer until reduced to half of original amount.|
|Glaze will thicken as it cools.|
Be careful not to whisk too vigorously. Glaze bubbles up quite high, so stir gently.
Pour into a container and keep in the refrigerator.
This glaze is amazing on salmon and grilled shrimp!
This recipe will be partying at these link parties!
