Guinness glazed carrots

Guinness Glazed Carrots

These are a great accompaniment to a Sunday roast and achingly easy to make. I’ve tried this recipe with a variety of beers (and even cider) and while my preference is a good stout, feel free to experiment to your own tastes. This is enough to serve 4-6 people and there’s enough Guinness left over for you to enjoy a sip while cooking!

  • 1 ounce / 30g salted butter
  • 14 ounces / 400g carrots, peeled and sliced into thick coins
  • 8¾ fluid ounces / 250ml Guinness


Melt the butter in a medium saucepan before adding the carrots.  Stir to coat and cook for 2 minutes, stirring regularly.

Add the Guinness and bring to a boil.  Reduce to a simmer and cook for 15 minutes.

Drain, add a pinch of seasoning to taste and serve warm.


Although the Irish are famously devoted to Guinness, 40% of all Guinness brewed is sold in Africa. The well-known advertising slogan “Guinness is good for you” has some basis in fact – Guinness contains only 198 calories per pint, less than a pint of low fat milk, and less than most light beers, wine, or orange juice.
