Malinda's Story

My husband who is a professional chef once cooked at an Irish pub this was his recipe for Guinness Beef stew.

    We add the honey becasue the Gunniess is bitterso the honey mellows it out. What type of beer do you use?

    What ever I have on hand...since we don't drink I buy the cheapest beer to cook with and make my soap with...this happens to be Carling Beer as my step son left it here in September.
    It is very good as I am sure yours is....I have been making this a long time and it is always a great winter dish.
