Caroline’s Cooking : Beef And Stout Stew
Irish stew, which is probably better known, is actually a little boring flavor-wise in my opinion as it’s just a water or stock base, but adding stout is so much better. While you can use Guinness, I would suggest something else as Guinness doesn’t have all that much depth of flavor. Whatever you use, though, the beer helps to tenderize the meat as it cooks low and slow. The flavor gets right into the meat and carrots, making this so comforting and tasty.
