Becky has spent her entire career cooking and baking, which are also her favorite hobbies outside of work. For her, time spent in the kitchen not only relieves stress, but is lots of fun as well. Becky’s love for baking began as a child, standing on a chair next her mom, adding ingredients and mixing up dough.

I made this stew twice over the 2013St. Patrick's Day weekend. Once for my knitting guild & the second time for the day itself. I made it according to the recipe with no substitutions with the exception of using apple juice instead of beer. (serving to GF & Cealics) Both times the stew was very well received. The liquid seemed to be just the right amount. I did cut my veggies & meat into smaller than 1" pieces.
2-1/2 stars. This is not a stew; its got TOO much liquid in proportion to other ingredients. When I made it, it was watery like a soup! I had to use cornstarch/water before serving to thicken it . Other stew recipes I use call for dredging the meat in seasoned flour before browning which I think helps to naturally thicken it as it cooks. On the plus side, the flavor was great, the beer made it taste fantastic. But sorry, I won't be making this again; there are too many other MUCH BETTER recipes to be found on the internet!
We love this recipe. I live in Northern Ireland and make this recipe for all of my American guests and they seem to love it too.
I currently live in Ireland and have made this recipe so many times for our American guests that come to visit. We love this recipe and of course use Guinness in it.
Loved this stew. Used a lager instead of a darker beer because that was what we had lying around, and it worked just fine. Big hit with my husband.

Today marks a quarter of a century for me on this beautiful planet. Twenty-five years of learning, exploring, and stuffing my face with delicious eats. And I can’t think of a better way to celebrate than to spend a relaxing day in the kitchen.
Even though it seems like summer may have just started, let’s face it – school is just around the corner. Even if you don’t want to think about it (or, let’s be honest here, are secretly excited to have the kids back in school), it helps to plan ahead. More ...
