May be bitter, depending on the beer you use. Add brown sugar to taste when you're finished and it's delicious.
My husband loved it. I liked it, but I thought it was missing something. Then again, I'm not a stew fan and I've been eating the leftovers. Couldn't put my finger on it. Maybe a bay leaf and/or some other herb. I used Guiness, but that's my favorite beer.
i really like this dish. It is so good. I usually add ketchup at the end to make it like stew. I dont like tomatos in there but the ketchup gives it a rich flavor. I also sub broth for beer if I dont have any on hand and it still turns out excellent. Thanks for a great recipe
We loved this dish. We had friends over the first time I made it and now it is a popular request! I used chives once instead of green onion and it came out great!
This recipe is delicious!!! I find an excuse to make it every winter or fall for the last few years and everyone loves it. the taste of the stew really depends on the beer/ale (being that it's the only liquid added) that you decide to use so choose wisely! It's easy to make so don't be afraid to try it!
Not good. SAVE YOURSELF THE FOUR PLUS HOURS and do not make this stew. You will be disappointed. I followed the recipe exactly except I cut back on the salt as suggested by others. It tasted beyond bitter. I should have known as it called for 24 oz. of beer and no beef broth to temper the bitterness. Halfway through I tried to save it with some tomato paste, beef broth, worcestershire sauce, and a little sugar which helped tremendously. Sunset recipes are usually solid, this one fell FAR short especially for how long it takes.
The best stew I have ever had!
This is a really great dish. I would have given it 5 stars but I didn't follow the recipe to a t. The recipe calls for WAY too much salt. I only used 1 and 3/4 teaspoons. I felt like it was just the right amount. Other than calling for too much salt, I think this recipe is great!
