This is a easy and cheap but hearty stew requiring only a few ingredients, the most important of which is beer.
I added Garlic with the onions, a touch of Worcestershire sauce at some stage, about two tea spoons of caster sugar and cornflour . Was fantastic. - 23 Nov 2014
Something else. There are only two of us so I altered the amount of carrots. The real reason for TWEAKING is that I used Baxter's French Onion Soup and a small can of Guinness. I also added mushrooms. Did not add salt. It was DELICIOUS! - 18 Nov 2010 (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
This stew was easy to make and was very delicious. Added 4 potatoes to mine to pad it out a bit. Yum! - 24 Mar 2011 (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
