I was so happy with how this stew turned out. The only changes I made were to use pre-cubed beef stew meat, Guinness instead of beer, and pre-crumbled bacon for the colcannon (I ran out of time and just so happened to have some in my refrigerator). The colcannon was just buttery enough and the cabbage was perfectly cooked. I always hand-mash my potatoes, so that's the only change I made to the methods. The stew had the perfect amount of liquid and the beef was so tender. The carrots didn't turn to mush, which I was concerned about. The overall flavor was excellent. My husband even loved it! I will definitely make this recipe in the future. In fact, I'm thinking about serving it to friends next time we have them over for dinner.
