Okay, I like snow when it begins with a showy lightening storm (THUNDERSNOOOOW) and ends with labs and universities closing because it's THIGH-HIGH. WOO!
Today would be the perfect day to make Guinness stew, but alas, I have no meat. Boo.
You should, though! The recipe I use is from my mom. :)
2 Tbsp paprika (be generous; the hotter the better)
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup flour
1 lb-ish stew meat
1 big onion
1 can or bottle of Guiness
28 oz can stewed tomatoes
~~~Put paprika, salt, flour, and meat into a bag and shake it all up.
~~~Brown the stew meat in oil.
~~~Chop an onion, throw it in there next, and brown it.
~~~Dump the browned meat-onion mixture into a Dutch oven (Mom's favorite) or a crock pot (my favorite/all I got).
~~~Add Guinness, tomatoes, carrots, yams, potatoes, etc.
~~~Cook VERY SLOWLY for a long time. I.e. until everything is soft and delicious. I believe it was in my crock pot on low heat for 4-6 hours?
Eat with bread. Yum. I used goat cheese biscuits. Drink a Guinness. Sigh with contentment.
Here's the illustrated version:
Put spices in a bag:
Add some meat:
Shake it up!!
