    very good flavors. I like my stew a little thicker so i added cornstarch. Will definitely make this again

    I am not the biggest beef stew person, but this was so amazingly good. Even my 2 pickiest eaters demolished it. I did add 2 beef bullion cubes to it, because the Guinness was slightly overpowering (and I love Guinness).

    Great-tasting and hearty stew. Broth is more a soupy broth, which I like. The parsnips and bitterness of the Guinness are what make this a great recipe. I usually use potatoes in lieu of the turnips.

    Great flavor, but too runny for my taste. Take my review with a grain of salt, as this is my first attempt at a stew. I love thick broth and a hearty stew, but this one tends more towards a soup. The other reviewer added corn flour in the beginning to thicken it up. Additonally, i ended up doing 6 hours on high and 4 on low to get the carrots and potatoes to soften.

    Turned out really quite nice, packed a good hearty winter stew punch. I added corn flour at the start to give a thicker broth. A strong dish not for the salad worshipper
