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 cover the entire vegie/meat mixture w/ liquid so I used the whole bottle of (light) beer, plus some chicken broth. I used the same amount of brown sugar & a heafty dash of cayenne pepper instead of chili sauce. In each bite I got the sweetness of the sugar finished with the spiciness of the cayenne. Chock full of flavor! The meat was fall-apart tender too. I cut it into bite sized pieces which I think contributed to the tenderness. Try this one for sure!

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 replaced with an extra half cup of guinness. the stew was still way too spicy. it was also way too sweet. both are things i enjoy in the right place.. they shouldn't be in stew. the few vegetables were lost in this slop. this did nothing for me.

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 made with tomatoes, onions, vinegar, and a few seasonings, but nothing hot, no hot pepper or cayenne, etc. Chili sauce isn't the kind that is often used in Thai cooking. It's a beefed up catsup. If you make this via the quick method, you will get a stew that isn't cooked properly. The veggies will be raw and the meat tough. Put this in a slow cooker on high for two or three hours, maybe more, then cut down for two or three more hours at low. You want the meat to fall apart.
