I'm giving the recipe as written three stars, because it was alright but nothing fantastic. It would actually only be a two-star for me, but I increased it because I omitted all vegetables except potatoes, because I have a picky eater in the house, so some of the just-alrightness could be due to that. Instead of salt in the flour coating, I used garlic powder for a bit of additional flavour. I used about half of the recommended amounts of broth and beer, and omitted the tomato sauce altogether, but it was still quite liquidy. I did increase the tomato paste to about one and two-thirds cans, to try to thicken it and make up for the omitted tomato sauce, but if I make again, I won't do that. It was a tad too tomato-y for my taste. I used Red Stripe beer, which I thought added great flavour (though I wanted to use Guinness, but didn't have any). If I make again, I would definitely add fresh garlic and onion, at the beef-browning stage.
