This is a traditional-style stew with a couple of changes. Great use for moose roast, as the meat gets really tender. Guinness adds a lot of flavor, but can be substituted with any good dark beer or stout. Moose can be substituted with beef or lamb for a more traditional Irish stew. Use any root vegetables that look good, though the parsnip imparts a really unique flavor so if you can find one, I highly recommend it. Recipe can easily be doubled to feed more people. Note on the seasoning: Use whatever you like that tastes good if you don't have all the ingredients listed below. The beef base and beer provide enough flavor alone. Great Sunday dinner recipe as it slow cooks through the day and requires little prep. My husband said "Hands down the best moose recipe we've come up with so far." Recipe can probably be modified for a slow cooker, though I wouldn't skip the browning steps with the moose and onions.
