PORTION IS OFF!! I rated this recipe 5 stars because it is DELICIOUS! However the 12 servings that this recipe says it yields is WAY off! After following this recipe to the letter I barely had enough for 4 reasonably sized adult portions. I can't stress enough how DELICIOUS this recipe was, soooo good!
We're quite sorry to be the only dissenting opionion on this to date, but we thought the recipe far too time consuming, and for modest results.
This stew is FABULOUS! However, the last reviewer is right...the portions are WAY off. I can feed four adults well and have one small serving left over for lunch the next day. I couldn't find celeriac, so used just celery instead and added parsnips - just because my family loves them. I have made this three times now and have used various kinds of beer (whatever I have on had - ALWAYS at least one can or bottle of something dark). It has been great every time. Thanks for sharing!!
absolutely delicious. I couldn't get celery root at the store I was shopping at so I used parsnips and regular celery but everything else I followed to the letter. Just amazing! We fed a family of 5 and still have enough left over for another dinner tonight so I would say the portioning is pretty close.
FAB recipe, what a hit and what flavours, I made mine with ale, dark beer, I doubled the recipe as I had 8 people to feed including 4 hungry big eater men. Also I added mine to the crockpot to slow cook for the day after the initial browning and boiling. The smell is amazing, never thought I would rave so much about the beer in the stew but its incredible with such a distinctive taste. You could really experiment with any strong flavorsome beer. Bought some crusty french stick bread to serve with it and added a handful of chopped corriander before serving. What a hit! boys loved it!
Great basic recipe! Made the best beef stew I've ever had. I halved the recipe and added my own twists. Used 1 1/2 sweet onion, cut in chunks; half a bag of baby carrots; no celery root or turnip; one bottle of Guinness beer, added a can of fire roasted diced tomatoes, about 1/2 cup of quick cooking barley (added the last 1/2 hour of cooking) and used some Montreal Seasonings. I didn't have fresh thyme so I used dry and added it when browning the veggies and then a bit more to the stew itself. Did use fresh rosemary at the end. I think the key is to season each layer and gradually build up the taste. Thank you so much for posting this!
I read the ingredients and read the reviews and I was excited about this recipe and ready to go. What I DIDN'T read was all the instructions. I've been pretty much a flour the meat, brown, throw in the rest of the ingredients and walk away for a few hours, crockpot-like. This one is more labor-intensive than that and I was getting kind of bummed because I really had other things to do that day than fuss with dinner. I'm so glad I hung in there though! This was just the absolute best!!! I won't say that I wouldn't try to cut or combine a few of the steps to see if it makes any difference, but I'll tell you what...if it DOES, I will go right back to this one and stop whining! This is a just FANTASTIC stew...the flavors just meld so wonderfully. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I'm craving it as I write just thinking about it. SO tasty!!!
The flavors in this stew are incredible! I had trouble finding celeriac so I just diced up some celery, and I use Lagunitas India Pale Ale. Delicious recipe!
