I've always steared away from stew recipes but I found a good sale on stew beef so I thought I'd try it. WOW! This was the best stew I've ever had!... After I put my twist on it. I wanted to ...

horrendous!! awful! blech! this isn't even a good start for a stew! i LOVE stew! i LOVE guinness! this ruined both of them! it came out way to thick. i gut the chili sauce to 1/2 cup and replace...

This has too much sugar for our tastes. It can be cut way down. Also, after reading the reviews, I realize not everyone understands what chili sauce is. It isn't a hot condiment. It's usually ma...

I served this at a party, and I heard very good reviews. However, the other comments about it being too spicy are very true (why it's only 4 stars). If I made it again, I would try to find a m...

This was VERY good! I added a packet of onion soup mix as was suggested and this added a great taste to it.

Unlike other recipes I've tried using beer, this one was too beer-tasty for me. Next time I'll use less...

My husband and I both really liked this and it's so easy. I think next time I'll add a little beef broth just to thin it down a little and add a little saltiness. But still REALLY good!

Great flavor, but 2 hours at High is too short a time. Increased to 4 hours and the meat came out nice and tender.

The meat ended up a bit dry and there really wasn't a lot of "juice." I will probably tweak the beer amount or add a bit of stock in the future.
