Very nice hearty stew. Prepping ahead to time makes cooking this recipe a cinch. I used country style ribs and grolsch beer and skipped the parsnip (not a fan). I felt there was not enough liquid when I added the potatoes, so added half of the cabbage. Still came out great! Served with rice - yummy! My picky 4-yr old even enjoyed it. Next time will try guiness and cooking in a slow cooker.

Relatively easy to make, and nicely reduced broth resulted in rich taste (extremely picky friend ate 3 helpings!). I had to add another half can of beer (Guiness) when I put in the potatoes and cabbage--otherwise I didn't think there was enough liquid to cook them. Also added a bit more paprika, but that could be because mine was old and may have lost some flavour. Used red onions and will use more next time. Served with green salad and toasted rye bread. Yum!
