I've only recently being learning how to cook stew and experimentation is still continuing.

I'm thinking of putting Guinness in it this evening. Any pointers would be most welcome.

True for curries aswell tthe second half of my chicken tikka tasted better than it did two days ago. Must be marinating or something.

Apparently, the reason slow cooked foods taste better the next day is because during the course of preparing and cooking your senses get used to all the smells and visuals and compensates where the next day, its just reheated and it just tastes stronger. Apparently. Anyways, a good home made stock always rocks a stew.

Rough recipe this time. Spuds, slightly over a kg of beef( housekeeper's cut), 3 carrots, one parsnip, one onion, a bag of soup mix from Centra, 2 cans of Guiness, water to top of bowls.

That is a LOT of guinness and parsnip seems to make the whole stew taste of parsnip no matter how little in it. What is soup mix? The pearl barley/split peas?

I was looking to buy Pearl barley but could only find the soup mix.

Anyway eating the first batch of my stew. A bit overpowering, but edible.

Two cans of Guinness is far too much. You'll ruin it. Don't use any at all, and use beef stock instead.

If you really want to use beer, use half a can and bring the pot to the boil for a few minutes after you've added it.

A good alternative to beef is neck of lamb. It makes its own stock while stewing. It's very cheap and can be got from a butcher. Don't put beer in it.

Yeah I've never used Guinness or any stout in mine. I do use a couple of oxo cubes. Had it in restaurant with O'Hara's and it was tasty though. Added wine once to try make a beef bourguignon.
