If you want some hearty country cookin', this is it. I've made a few times and these are my changes after reading reviews. I added salt and pepper to to the flour that coated the beef. Cut the amount of carrots in half, otherwise, you are eating carrot stew. I did use the Extra Stout Guinness, even though some people complained about it. I had no issues with it (but I am a Guinness drinker). I did add a wee bit of sugar, probably a tsp. or two. I also doubled the broth because I found it too thick otherwise, and who wouldn't want to stretch a good thing? Because I doubled the broth, I also doubled the cornstarch/water mix at the end for thickening. I also added these spices: salt, basil, rosemary & thyme. Warning -- its kind of addictive. POSTSCRIPT: After I made this the last time, my boyfriend added some Hatch roasted green chiles and that was a nice addition if you are craving some spice.
