I made this for supper the other night and really enjoyed it! Based on other reviews, I did toss the beef in a little flour before browning adding a little fresh ground pepper on top. I also used a small bag of "baby" carrots and used 2 whole bottles of an Irish stout beer. If you don't like the taste of beer, you shouldn't even try this because that is what gives this dish an authentic taste. I also used only about 1/4 cup flour for thickening and cut back on the honey, as I didn't want it sweet, just to balance out the bitterness of the beer. I will definitely be making this again; was thoroughly enjoyed!
