Beef in Guinness Irish Stew

Shirley Murtagh


With St. Patrick's Day not too far away now I start looking thru my Irish recipes . This little gem comes from the Appletree Press title: "A Little Irish Cookbook." I have made this recipe with a few changes of my own. My husband and I love Irish stew. It is a quick and easy recipe to prepare. I hope you will give this one a try.
