freshly ground black pepper
boneless beef chuck, trimmed and cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces
yellow onion, coarsely chopped
1 (15 ounce) can
Irish stout beer (e.g. Guinness®)
1 (14.5 ounce) can
chopped fresh parsley
round red potatoes, halved
carrots, cut into 1-inch chunks
1 (17.5 ounce) package
frozen puff pastry, thawed and cut into quarters
This was easy to make and made the house smell delicious. Even though I used small potatoes, it took much longer than the recipe stated to cook - close to 2 hours instead of 1. My husband loved this, but my daughter said the meat was weird but the sauce was delicious. Thanks!
Made it exactly as written. It's very easy, and the meat was tender. The rest was a little bland. Next time I'll tweak it with some spices.
Super delicious! The best slow cooker recipe yet.
Added 1/2 pound sliced mushrooms, dry fried at high heat just after meat was removed and just before onions were browned.
Used same volume of potatoes but cut them in to halves and added to crock pot with browned onions, meat and carrots.
Cooked on low for 8 hours - came out perfect, and much less hassle
Left off puff pastry. It's delicious, but so unhealthy
Have made this twice following the recipe pretty closely. My kids and husband ate it all in one cold afternoon! Used Fosters Lager the first time since I was out of stout, was still awesome! Took a little more beef broth both times-a cup or so. Second time used potato starch for flour to go gluten free...still deliscious!
This was absolutely delicious and reheated beautifully. Just be careful, this is a HUGE recipe. I had to use less of almost everything so that I could fit it in my slow cooker.
Good but a little bland
Pleased my picky brood! I was skeptical about using the Guinness, but it came out so great I won't make a beef stew without it now. I doubled the vegetables and broth but kept everything else the same. Even the kids were asking for second servings. And chuck is definitely the way to go! I've used bottom rounds for other stews, but I think the chuck is more flavorful.
This is a very good recipe. I skipped the puff pastry and used a craft brewery stout from Seattle. I cubed up an eye of chuck. It is more tender and less grainy than regular chuck.
