    Bev's Note:

    This recipe calls for a brown ale or a strong dark beer. It is recommended that you do not use a stout. I found this recipe in Eating Well Magazine.

      This was excellent! Loved the rich flavor, even though I used a lager rather than a dark beer.

      I was going to post this for the ZWT 2010 and here it is. I LOVE this stew, so easy and tasty. Even tho I know it makes it more authentic, I don't care for caraway seeds, so always leave them out. Thanks for posting, Bev.
