This stew is traditionally for St. Patrick's Day but any time the mixture of the beef and Guinness is awesome! I usually add more beer than the recipe calls for and serve it with mashed potatoes.
I love this recipe and have made a few times when I have people for dinner they always enjoy. I use gravy beef and cook slow and long. I serve with Colcannon potato. - 23 Sep 2013
This makes THE BEST pie filling ever. Double the onions, omit the carrots, do the long, slow cook in a crockpot so the mixture is thick and with no/little liquid, place in a deep pie tin lined with short crust pastry, cover and enclose with puff pastry, and bake at 200 deg C for 15-20 mins till puffed and golden.

This was actually really tasty! I cooked it for my family and they all really enjoyed it. However I followed the steps in the recipe but instead of cooking for 3 hours I put it on low in the slow cooker all day and added extra water to it. - 14 Mar 2012
