- 250g Tilda Basmati Rice, uncooked
- 2 Tbsp of oil
- 1kg stewing beef
- 1 onion, roughly chopped
- 4 carrots, roughly chopped

In a casserole add oil and brown the beef. Season with a little salt & pepper. Remove and set aside.
Add a little more oil and fry the oil, carrot & celery until onion has softened.
Add the beef back in along with Guinness, stock, puree, ketchup thyme and bay leaves. Give everything a good mix.
Now place in a pre-heated for 2.5 hours or until meat is tender.
About 20 mins before you stew is finished start making your basmati rice. Put your rice in a sieve and rice thorough under cold water until it runs clear. Add the rice to a sauce pan and add 500ml of water.
Cook on a really high heat until it comes to boil. Then cover with a lid and turn the heat off and let the rice steam for approx 10-12 mins. Do not open the lid or mix it.
When you remove from the oven and you feel you would like it a little thicker just add a little cornflour paste and put on the hob and cook it through until it has thickened 1-2 mins.
Plate your rice and then serve your delicious Irish Beef & Guinness Stew.
