Excellent recipe! It also has a great aroma while simmering in the oven. I served this over egg noodles and it was delicious!! Definately a 5 star rating!!

I loved this recipe. I think maybe next time, I will go a little lighter on the beer, but other than that, it was a really good meal. I served it over vermicelli noodles, with English peas and biscuits. Has a really sweet but tangy taste. Will make again.
