Susieq76 with 50% of the votes.

Here is the winning recipe:

BEEF & GUINNESS STEW
Chef Darina Allen of Ballymaloe Cooking School - County Cork, Ireland
Adapted by StarChefs

Guinness, Ireland's famous black stout, has been brewed in Dublin since 1759. It has a very special place in Irish life. In Dublin Tenement Life: An Oral History, publican John O'Dwyer recalls the importance of stout in the lives of the poorest tenement dwellers in Dublin: They had nothing. They lived for pints. Drink was the main diet. It was food... they used to call the pint the 'liquid food'.

Nowadays the 'liquid food' is used increasingly in cooking. It is a tasty addition to stews and casseroles, helping to tenderize the meat and imparting its distinctive malty flavor to any dish. This recipe makes a wonderful gusty stew which tastes even better a day or two after it is made.


Yield: 6-8 servings

2 lb lean stewing beef
3 tablespoons oil
2 tablespoons flour
salt and freshly ground pepper and a pinch of cayenne
2 large onions, coarsely chopped
1 large clove garlic, crushed (optional)
2 tablespoons tomato puree, dissolved in 4 tablespoons water
1 1/4 cups Guinness
2 cups carrots, cut into chunks
sprig of thyme
Method:

Trim the meat of any fat or gristle, cut into cubes of 2 inches (5cm) and toss them in a bowl with 1 tablespoon oil. Season the flour with salt, freshly ground pepper and a pinch or two of cayenne. Toss the meat in the mixture. Heat the remaining oil in a wide frying pan over a high heat. Brown the meat on all sides. Add the onions, crushed garlic and tomato puree to the pan, cover and cook gently for about 5 minutes. Transfer the contents of the pan to a casserole, and pour some of the Guinness into the frying pan. Bring to a boil and stir to dissolve the caramelized meat juices on the pan. Pour onto the meat with the remaining Guinness; add the carrots and the thyme. Stir, taste, and add a little more salt if necessary. Cover with the lid of the casserole and simmer very gently until the meat is tender - 2 to 3 hours. The stew may be cooked on top of the stove or in a low oven at 300 degrees F. Taste and correct the seasoning. Scatter with lots of chopped parsley.

Congratulations Susieq76!

CONGRATULATIONS, Susie! I have tried your recipe a week ago when I had friends visiting and it was top result. I hope you don't mind that it is on its way across my country now... wink.gif

Congratulations! Well chosen!

This is definitely on my short list of things to prepare as soon as this disgusting hot weather breaks. Sounds so good for a windy fall night!!!! D'you think it would destroy the integrity of it to slip in some tender little new potatoes?

We are having some trouble trying to contact susie about her Tshirt. If anyone has an alternative email address, please let her know so that she can pick out any of the shirts in our catalog!

I believe I did receive an email back from her that she acknowledge winning, but no word from her in over a month.

Hey! Sorry for the delay. I did get in touch with Paul the other week, but it must have slipped my mind to let you know, Shadows. I was in a "delicate" condition for the past few months, but have finally emerged from the pit of morning sickness and am doing great. Sorry again for not responding earlier!
