This recipe did not work out for me. I did cook it in a Dutch oven and from what I can remember there wasn’t enough gravy and everything seemed a bit dry. I always follow recipes word for word when I first make them and this just didn’t work out. If I did it again I would have to alter some things.

I made some changes to the recipe to fit my palate/equipment. I used a crock pot instead of a dutch oven. I removed celery and added potatoes. I used coconut flour instead of all purpose flour. And I added sweet italian sausage at the end. I browned the meat and onions as in the directions and transferred to a crock pot on high for 3 1/2 hours. The stew is pretty good, but never got to a gravy consistency and remained fairly soupy. This may have been caused by using the crock pot instead of baking. Pretty good but a little sweet for my taste buds. I'd reduce the brown sugar to one tablespoon and increase the salt and pepper somewhat.

More gravy than vegetables or meat. I would add potatoes. Very delicious in flavor.

I did not use the Guinness but used mushroom stock instead. It turned out ok. Will try it again with bigger beef cubes
