  • 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)

Guinness Sauce:

  • 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
  • 4 tsp cornstarch mixed with 1 tbsp sauce


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees and spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray. 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 and bake 15- 20 minutes.
  • While meatballs are baking, pour Guinness, BBQ sauce hone molasses, dry mustard, diced onion, and garlic salt to a large skillet. Bring to a boil and let simmer 10 minutes.
  • Bring sauce back to a boil. Mix cornstarch with 1 tablespoon of sauce and pour into sauce, stirring until thickened. Add meatballs, mix and serve.
