Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Even if you are making traditional corned beef and cabbage Sunday, this Guinness Irish Beef Stew is the perfect compliment. It's even better the second day, especially if you party like a Leprechaun the night before. Made in your slow cooker, a pint of Guinness helps create a rich and creamy gravy to compliment the hearty pieces of beef, carrots, and potato.
