Happy March! With St. Patrick’s Day on it’s way, I thought I would do a couple Irish inspired recipes… with Guinness. Disclaimer: I don’t like beer. So, results will be skewed 😉 Watch at your own risk. LOL To be fair, my husband loved the sauce and the meatballs… and I, well, you will just have to watch and see.

Guinness Meatballs & Sauce


  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • ½ cup Guinness Stout
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup stuffing mix processed in food processor ( I used Pepperidge Farms seasoned stuffing mix)

Sauce Ingredients:

  •  2-11.2 oz Guinness stout
  • ½ cup BBQ sauce
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 1-1/2 tbsp molasses
  • 2 tsp dry mustard
  • ½ onion chopped
  • 1 tsp garlic salt
  • Add at the end: 4 tsp cornstarch mixed with 1 tbsp sauce


  •  In a large bowl add beef, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, pepper, diced onion, seasoned stuffing mix (ground into fine crumbs), Guinness beer, and an egg, mix and form into balls.
  • Oven instructions for meatballs:  Preheat oven to 425 degrees and spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray. Place meatballs on a baking sheet and bake for 15 – 20 minutes.
  • Air Fryer instructions for meatballs: Spray your air fryer tray with plenty of nonstick spray (or oil). Place formed meatballs on your tray and bake at 400 for  15- 20 minutes.
