      Tips: The classic "Irish Stew" was originally prepared with mutton, root vegetables, and water. After the great famine of 1845 and the emigration of a portion of the population, the dish evolved and includes ingredients easier to find in their new land, such as beef. Finally, we replaced the water with Guinness, the flagship beer of the Irish culture. For this recipe, you can substitute it with the beer of your choice.

      We really enjoyed this beef stew. I was afraid the Guinness might take over flavor wise, but it didn't, it added depth and richness. The only change I would make is to skip the parsnips next time. I didn't care for that flavor (personal preference). Thanks for posting this yummy beef stew recipe! Made for ZWT8 Great Britain

      This is a good basic stew, which I made it as written. The meat retained more of the beer flavor then the broth did, though it came through more in the earlier stages of cooking. It was a nice flavor so I would probably reserverve some of the beer to add more towards the end. a I usually like more seasoning in my stew and would add thyme, garlic and maybe some marjoram. Thanks for sharing I will definitely try adding some Guiness to my usual stew recipe. Made for ZWT 8 by on of The Wild Bunch
