    JustJanS's Note:

    A family favourite. The Guiness mellows during the cooking to produce a yummy gravy. I do like Queen Dragon Mum's idea of adding the molasses if you don't like prunes as that takes the edge off the Guiness too.

      This was excellent! The smell as it cooked was wonderful and it tasted even better than it smelled. We served this as our main dish for St. Patrick's Day, but we will make this often - not just for holidays. This was the most delicious beef stew I've ever tasted - and plan to serve this again in a few weeks for company. I think the secret ingredients were the Guinness Stout and the prunes - don't be tempted to substitute either ingredient. Perfect!
