One of the best parts of eating at the Raglan Road is enjoying homemade Irish soda bread with their well-known Guinness dipping sauce. The Guinness dipping sauce is a reduction of Guinness sweetened with sugar. This delicious sauce takes no time at all to prepare.

Reduce the sauce carefully

It’s important to reduce the Guinness/sugar mixture carefully. It needs to be simmered on low for about an hour – this will reduce it by at least half. The more reduction, the more tang you will get. You don’t need to stand over the pot for a whole hour, but you do need to pay attention and give it a stir every now and then.

What makes Guinness so full of flavor.

Even if you’re not Irish, you must be familiar with the Irish dry stout called Guinness. Guinness stout is an offshoot of the porter style of beer that was originally made in London in the early 18th century. Guinness has a very distinctive burnt flavor that comes from the use of roasted unmalted barley. The wonderfully enticing thick creamy head of Guinness results from the beer being mixed with nitrogen when being poured.

  • 1 tablespoon milk

Instructions

Guinness Reduction

  • In a medium-sized pot combine the Guinness and sugar, simmer on low for approximately an hour. This mixture will reduce by at half if not more. The more this reduces the better, as you will end up with a tangy sauce. 
  • do not walk away while this is cooking, it will bubble up while cooking, and you need to stir it from time to time so it does not bubble over the stove. Let the sauce cool to room temperature before serving. 
  • When you are ready to serve the sauce place equal amounts of the reduction and olive oil (you do not need to use extra virgin, in fact, don’t, the flavor won’t be right). 
  • Dip pieces of bread into the reduction and enjoy. Irish Soda Bread This is not the Raglan Road's Irish soda bread, this is an Irish Soda bread that I like to make. I couldn't get past the delicious dipping sauce to even begin to focus on their bread. 

Irish Soda Bread

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, mix together flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt. 
  • Using a pastry blender, cut the butter into the flour mixture until the butter is well dispersed and you have a crumbly mixture. Add the buttermilk and stir until just moistened. 
  • Knead for 1 minute on a floured surface. Shape into a ball and place into a 1 1/2 quart greased casserole. Use a sharp knife to cut an ‘X’ across the top. Brush with milk and bake for about 45 minutes tented with foil for the last 15 minutes. Turn loaf onto a wire rack to cool.

    I had this there and it was amazing, its actually brown sugar that they use. When I asked our waitress she got me the head chef’s business card so I could email him and wrote down what was in it. Amazing! Love that place.. they have the best shepherds pie!!

    I had this a year ago and thought I need to remember this and try making it at home. The other week I was trying to remember what alcoholic beverage it was they used in the dipping sauce and couldn’t for the life of me remember. Guinness, how could I forget? So glad you followed me on Twitter so I found your site. I’ll be making this very soon!

    I’m salivating just reading this. The food at Raglan Road was excellent, and I am going to have to go to Specs tomorrow and pick up some Guinness so I can make some use it with my soda bread. 🙂
