Stout Braised Bangers and Mash

Stout Braised Bangers and Mash is just classic comfort food. I made this dish for St. Patrick’s Day and it’s simply perfection. Guinness of course is the perfect compliment to this velvety delicious sauce.

I prefer using the Extra Stout Guinness for an extra punch and depth in flavor. I found Irish-Style Bangers from Costco this year and knew it would be perfect for this recipe.

Make this with brats or pork sausages if you can’t find Irish-Style Bangers. It’ll be delicious no matter what. It’s all about that rich stout sauce anyways. 

These bangers are braised down in a Guinness sauce with caramelized onions and sauteed mushrooms that just enhance the end result. This depth of flavor is pure richness.

I use Extra Stout Guinness in this recipe but you can use any kind of stout beer. For my potatoes I like using baby reds and keeping the skin on for texture. You can use russet or gold as well if you like. I just really love mashed red potatoes! It's totally preference here.
