This is a beef stew with a kick - flavoured with loads of green jalapeno chillies and your favourite ale. For a little less kick, use fewer jalapenos, or substitute with a milder green chilli. Serve with rice or crusty bread and salad for a gorgeous winter meal.
I was concerned when making this stew if it would seem like it was missing something since there are so few ingredients. My husband and I both LOVED this stew. It was very flavorful & filling and didn't need anything else other than crusty bread to soak up the stew. I didn't use a beer but added extra beef stock instead. I also floured the meat before cooking - it seemed to thicken up the stew. I cooked it for 3 hours & the meat was tender & perfect. Great recipe. - 13 Jun 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Yum,Yum,Yum! This is soooo good! I made a few changes. I browned the meat, onions, and garlic and put it in the crockpot instead of cooking them on the stove. I feel that it could of used a bit more beer, so next time I'll use a whole bottle for 3 servings instead of half a bottle. - 27 Aug 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
