I make this for my in laws whenever they come to stay. Perhaps it will suit your own finicky relatives! Serve with mashed or boiled potatoes, and pickled beets if you have them.

This is sooo good!!! I made this for my husband as he is a Guinness lover. I didn't think I would like it, but it was awesome. Even my one year old loved it! The Guinness makes a great gravy. I served this over garlic mashed potatoes.
