Guinness - it's not just for drinking any more!

Top Review by Porfavorcorona

For diet reasons I used a pork tenderlion instead of the steak. This turned out so great and the pork was so tender. I change only a couple of things. First I use the whole 12 oz of Guinness and then use 12 oz of beef broth. This was a quick and easy recipe to fix. DH said it tasted just like the Irish stews he had at the local Irish pub in Germany. This will be add to our winter rotation of soups. Made for the 2008 St. Patrick's Day Menu Challenge.
