I love soups and I’ve learned to start loving stews. Some days it’s nice to have a hearty stew for dinner. What ultimately drew me to this recipe was the fact that it had beer in it. I knew my husband would approve of it even though the beer would eventually cook down and would only add an extra layer of flavor. I loved the ruggedness of this stew. The unpeeled carrots and potatoes intrigued me. This stew was delicious, and in the end I only had one serving left which I froze and will be consumed at a later date. *Thaw and reheat within 2 months of freezing. I served this stew with the amazing Buttermilk Cornbread!
