With it being October and it finally beginning to chill off (I live in South Carolina and it’s been unseasonably warm this year), I was in the mood for some belly-warming yummi-ness. I came across this recipe and decided it would be perfect considering I’ve been on my Oktoberfest kick (the numerous varieties of beer in my fridge are a testament to that fact.)
First things first, I PINNED it.
I then MADE it. I followed this recipe to the “T” — Well, one exception – I did use a lager beer but did not have an Oktoberfest variety on hand (my fridge was full of ales and wheats), and it was Sunday. So I had to settle for a regular Grolsch (thanks Hal!)
To RATE it: All in all, the stew was tasty. I don’t know how much difference in flavor the Oktoberfest lager would have made. The coloring would have probably been a little more on the darker side. Mine came out a little thinner than stew consistency. I would definitely make this again, trying it with an actual darker lager and perhaps reducing the stock by a half cup or so.
Should you try it, please leave a comment and let me know how yours comes out!
