Frequently asked questions 

Does the sauce taste like beer?

No. As the alcohol is cooked out of the beer the beer transforms the sauce into a luxe savory dark sauce that’s irresistibly delicious. It doesn’t taste like beer. Guinness is much darker than other types of beers giving the sauce a deep flavor and darkness.

Is Guinness vegan?

Yes. Originally Guinness was not vegan, but nowadays Guinness has changed their ingredients and is vegan. Yay.

Can I leave out the beer?

If you wanted to. The beer helps to give depth of flavor and color to the sauce, but it can be left out if you prefer. You will need to replace the beer with another type of liquid. This could be coconut milk (it won’t give the same taste and color, but it will be delicious).

Is this vegan roast freezer friendly?

Yes. This recipe is great to make in advance and freeze for later because of the hardy winter vegetables. You may want to add a little extra liquid (water or vegetable broth) when you reheat the dish.
