Guinness Beef Stew with Parsnips

What’s a question you can ask your spouse that will always result in a “yes”?

I don’t know about you, but that question for me is:  “Do you want to make stew this weekend?”  If I ask “Do you want to make stew with parsnips this weekend?” I will get a “yes” with an exclamation point.

Here’s my generalization for the day:  Men like stew.  If your man is anything like mine, and I’m betting he is, he really likes stew. I mean, really likes stew!

Now, add beer and parsnips, and you’ve really got a deal!

The beef in this stew is tender and falls apart in your mouth.  The potatoes and parsnips work together to give it that hearty stew flavor and feel.  The carrots, celery, onions, Guinness, Worcestershire, and spices add a savory and complex flavor to this stew.  It’s the perfect foil to a cold day!

Guinness Beef Stew with Parsnips

1 pint of Guinness or stout beer

1 1/2 quarts beef stock
