I've been wanting to attempt this Irish stew for a while now. In fact, ever since that tasty bowl we shared in a Dublin pub. I finally had the inspiration and motivation this week, and decided to try this recipe, with a few exceptions, of course.
I added a little extra Guinness (of course) and some salt (of course), and I used turnips instead of parsnips. I didn't have any bittersweet chocolate on hand, so I just threw in a tiny handful of semi-sweet chocolate chips. I wasn't sure if I was going to like it but, but wowee, it's great. It made a huge pot of soup, so I think I'll have to freeze some, unless we have someone over for dinner tomorrow night.
