Loz's Slow Cooked Irish Guinness Stew

“This is an all time favourite! NB (Including some review suggestions - THANKS!): #1 If you prefer fresher veggies (not the stew soaked kind), leave the celery, carrots and potato until the last 1.5 hours. #2 Pumpkin and sweet potato are nice in this too. (try not to exceed the level of the liquid) #3 As a poster suggested: throw some peas and / or corn kernels in at the end to freshen the stew #4 Dumplings can be added #5 Leave out the potatoes and serve on a bed of Mash - fab idea thanks! :) #6 Making a roux to thicken is also a good idea! #7 Enjoy!!! :)”
