Guinness Gravy Glaze

If you love dark beer you’ll love our Guinness Gravy Glaze! This glaze is packed with flavor and is the perfect compliment to brisket or pastrami.


  • 2 bottles Guinness stout
  • 1 can french onion soup
  • ½ cup balsamic vinegar
  • ¼ cup worcestershire sauce
  • ¼ cup beef broth concentrate
  • 1 tbsp. minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp. tomato paste
  • 1 tbsp. black pepper corns
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • ½ tbsp. xanthan gum powder
  • ½ stick salted Kerrigold butter


Combine all ingredients and heat until simmering slightly. Use an immersion blender or regular blender to blend all ingredients until smooth. Put back in the pan and continue to heat until the gravy starts to thicken. Once the gravy starts to coat a spoon well add the butter and melt and continue stirring. Set aside to drizzle over meat or to use as a dip once meat is done.

What Is a Meat Glaze?

You’re a lover of all kinds of sauces and dressings, not to mention gravy. Although our Guinness gravy sauce recipe has elements of a gravy, it can also be useful as a meat glaze.

Meat glazes are a lot like gravy, to be honest. The biggest difference is that glazes are packed with loads of flavor and they tend to be highly concentrated. This allows you to use them like you would use bouillon as a stock starter.

This particular Guinness gravy and glaze recipe can be frozen in ice cube trays. Just make a mess of Guinness gravy and freeze the extra. Then, bag up those cubes of Guinness gravy goodness and toss them into stews, or defrost them to turn them into liquid glaze.

Going Vegetarian for Today’s Meal? Guinness Gravy Is a Great Accompaniment

Most of the ingredients in our Guinness gravy sauce recipe fall in line with vegetarian eating. The only standout is the beef broth concentrate, which can be swapped out for a veggie broth.

If you plan on making your next meal a vegetarian wonderland of produce prepared on your wood pellet smoker grill, use the Guinness gravy as a glaze for vegetable slices. Guinness gravy glaze also makes a terrific dipping sauce for grilled mushrooms, zucchini chunks and other garden favorites. Simply skewer and smoke your harvest, then serve it up with a little Guinness gravy on the side. Delicious does not begin to describe the results.

Why We Care About Butter in Our Guinness Gravy Recipe

We have tons of great recipes on our Grilla Grills site. Most of them that include butter are not specific about the brand of butter. In this case, we suggest you choose Kerrigold. Our pickiness comes from a place of reason.

When you whip up a gravy or glaze, you count on it to have incredible flavor. Ordinary butters have too high of a water content to give you the final result you deserve. In fact, they will only serve to bring down the overall essence of the Guinness gravy. Go high-quality with your Guinness and your Kerrigold butter. You will thank us!
