I found this too greasy, and did not like the flavor of the tomato paste at all. I usually use the same ingredients, but leave out the tomatoes and garlic. I think it ruins the flavor a bit. I made a whole batch last St. Patty's day and gave it away because my husband and I didn't like the flavor at all, but other people might. I would cut down the oil to two tablespoons, and then take out the beef, drain the oil, add a whole bottle and a half of guinness to get the bits off the bottom, then add the onion and beef back. I also add beef broth and potatoes to it; the potatoes help to thicken the stew. If you like the flavor of tomato paste and garlic in your stew with less broth, then this is for you! I agree with the other reviewers that it lacked flavor. I won't make it again.
