      It really is a good recipe, but the beer is something you can definitely live without. It smelled like a frozen Lean Cuisine meal, but the taste was very good if you could get paste the bitterness of the beer. I'd definitely try the recipe again, sans the Guinness.

      Wow! This is very good. Since the last reviewer said the Guinness was a bit overpowering, I thought I would add a bit more spice. I ended up having to adjusted to taste as I went a bit heavy on the tarragon - it can be a little bitter. To fix it I put in about 1.5 Tblspns sugar. Then I realized the directions mention honey but it is not in the ingredients. I also added an additional can of beef broth, the full can of tomato paste, about 2 tsp salt, and 2 tsp fresh ground pepper. I also put about a 3/4 cup flour in a ziploc and tossed the meat that seemed to provide the added thickening recommended by another rater. After it sat later in the evening, it even tasted better. I will make this again. Tomorrow I am treating a friend from work to a bowl at lunch. Thanks Mims for a yummy meal - especially on a cold rainy St. Pat's weekend here in Carolina. :D

      This is a richly flavoured stew, wonderful! The times and amounts given were perfect! We loved the herbs, although I had to substitute dried herbs in a smaller amount. We liked the guiness but I think next time I would reduce it by half...the beer overpowered the other flavours slightly. I'd also increase the flour a bit to thicken the stew. The flavours are wonderful nevertheless and the beef was very tender. Thank you, Mims & Squims!
