"St. Paddy's Day done right: Meat, potatoes, and Ireland's best beer. I tossed some parsley on it at the end b/c I happened to have some. Not necessary."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

Great recipe. I made a few modifications: I recommend making sure you use stout, since the tab thing in the draft can change the soup a bit. Also, since the beer can leave a bit of a bitter aftertaste, throw in some finely chopped prunes (about 1/4 cup or less); they will dissolve but will take away the bitterness and add another layer to the stew.
Word of Caution -- I learned the hard way that simmering one's St. Paddy's Day corned beef in Guinness yields a bitter corned beef. -- DANGER WILL O'ROBINSON!
If you are using Guinness or any other beer it is not gluten free, because beer is made with barley, a grain that contains gluten. I made this using gluten free Redbridge beer (made with surghum) and cut the garlic down to 2 cloves. I served it with gluten free biscuits from Glutino.
Made the way te recipe is written using carrots and potatoes - yields a very tasty beef stew which I thicken with a little flour and water, if needed.
I made this recepie for St. Patty's party I hosted. It came out quite well. I did change it up a bit because I did not have all the ingredients. I used two potatoes and 2 sweet potatoes and added extra carrots and celery to add a bit more color. I also added beef broth. It came out more like a soup but It was delish. The guiness gave it a kick!! I guess it did not taste too bitter because of the sweet potatoes!
I've made this twice before, and am embarking on my third pot! I adore it! The first two times, I've followed the recipe exactly. This time, I've add a bit more meat and potatoes and some carrots, just to see how it would taste... I had to add in a little bit of beef broth to cover everything. But wow is it fantastic! This is a certified hit in our house. Especially with a homemade loaf of country bread to clean the bowls with!
This stew was bitter, thin like soup.
To me the stout did make it quite bitter. I made my stew in a slow-cooker. My husband likes just about anything and he did not care for this. Sadly, I will not be making this again. At least not with the stout.
