    Vicki in CT's Note:

    This is one of the best stews I have ever had. It has a deep dark, somewhat thick base. I have used Bass Pale Ale also with great results. Truly one of my favorites. From Chef Michael Lamonaco's appearance on the Today Show with some revisions. Serve with a nice crusty bread.

      Add onion, celery, and butter to pot and cook until golden and carmelized, about 15 minutes.

      Wonderful flavor! The entire house smells so good! Cut the recipe in half, with a little more veggies than meat! Made with my favorite beer; Shiner Bock, a German beer brewed in Shiner, Texas. Added about a 1/4 teaspoon thyme and a bay leaf, other than that followed the recipe. Have to confess, even though it's not very German, I added a little soy sauce to the gravy. . . it was incredible! Served over noodles with Bavarian Pretzels/ Pretzel Rolls (Laugenbrezeln). DH has requested that I make again, leave the potatoes out of the stew and serve over mashed potatoes. Made for ZWT#6.

      I have made this stew only once, but I have been thinking about it ever since. Delicous with a thick, rich sauce. I have found my one and only stew recipe!
