As usual, Corwynn's recipe was outstanding. You're an All-Recipes superstar, Corwynn - my favorite recipe submitter! (If you haven't tried Corwynn's other recipes, head straight to her list!) Delicious, hearty dish with a complex, savory flavor; must be the combination of the thyme and the beer. To mix it up a little, I added a packet of dry onion soup and used fresh veggies (sweet potato, carrots, and celery). Since I used sweet potatoes, I did not add the brown sugar. And as much as I love butter, I decided to cut back on the saturated fat by browning the meat in a few tablespoons of olive oil instead. These changes made the stew a little healthier but still tasted rich, even decadent. This was a hit with my family, even my picky 6 year old. This is definitely our new family stew recipe.


This recipe was easy to fix and tasted delious. I increased the oven to 450 degrees to speed up the cooking time. I don't buy canned vegatables, so frozen vegatables work just as well. They seem to keep their firmness during cooking time.


Very good, loved the different flavor the beer gives although not too overpowering. I did add extra water, I thought it was a little too thick.
