Irish Stout Beef Casserole

This is a lovely winter warmer which is very easy to prepare. It can be cooked in a crock pot and ready to eat when you get home from work. Don't be restricted by the stout as any dark ale or beer is fine.

Realing nice Irish Stew for St Paddy's Day. The only thing you need to add is some Irish Soda Bread.

Delicious! The recipe didn't list when to add the stout so I just added it with the stock and that was fine. I also made this in the slow cooker and cut the amount of stock by approx half. Steak was lovely and tender and the stout gave the dish a fabulous rich taste.
