Tried it in slow cooker... looking forward to it all day after working outside in cold.... It was like warm guinness with vegetables floating in it. It was well rank. I'll stick to guinness pie.

I tried this stew for a friend's cabin/bbq weekend, it was a huge hit! I did add 1 diced onion and diced cremini mushrooms and also made herby dumplings 20 minutes before it was (reheated) ready. Thanks for sharing! I actually made it the day before the trip and then heated it up again the next day, so good!
