This worked out well for me. My husband (a Brit) liked it a lot. This may sound dopey, but I find it off putting that the name of the recipe is Guinness and Sheep rather than Guinness and Mutton. Would you like to eat Cow Stroganoff, or Beef Stroganoff?
Well Miller, this was good, and very useful as I had a new mix of Essence of Emeril (thanks Lennie), a bunch of fresh thyme and some sheep all needing to be used. DH loved it, it's definately a keeper, and I will make it again and again until it becomes a 5! Once again you've showed me Guiness isn't just for drinking!
