I saw this recipe this morning on the Today Show.
So I decided to make it. I adapted the recipe to use what I had.
2 T. canola oil
4 lbs cross rib roast cut into 1-2 in. chunks
Brown meat in a pot.
Remove meat from pot and add vegetables
12 pearl onions peeled and cut in half
3 handfuls of baby carrots chopped
4 stalks of celery chopped
2 T. fine chopped garlic in a jar
Cook until softened.
Add meat back in with the vegetables.
4 bottles of Guinness stout beer
1 c. beef stock
2 bay leaves
salt and pepper
Simmer on the stove for 4 hours.
We poured the stew over mash potatoes. Pure comfort.
Recipe can be made and put in the crockpot on low for 4 hr.
For dessert, make your favorite brownies and frost with
chocolate frosting and don't forget the shamrock sprinkles.
