WAYYY off topic, but does anyone else here cook regularly? I like to think I'm pretty good at it... I made some beef stew in the slow cooker this morning before I went to bed, and it smells pretty damn good right now... Three Spirit Stew 2 pounds stew beef, cut into 1-inch pieces 6 large garlic cloves, minced 14 oz beef stock or canned beef broth I bottle of Guinness beer 1 cup of fine red wine 3 oz good Irish whiskey (Jameson) 1 can diced tomatoes, with juice 1 tablespoon sugar 1 tablespoon dried thyme 1 tablespoon dried basil 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce 12 red potatoes, cut into stew-size pieces 1 large onion, chopped 2 cups 1/2-inch pieces peeled carrots Salt and Pepper 1 cup cabbage, chopped 1 cup mushrooms 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley Layer ingredients in slow cooker: carrots, potatoes, onions, garlic, cabbage, mushrooms, Worcestershire sauce, Guinness, wine, whiskey, thyme, basil, salt, pepper, beef, tomatoes, and stock. Cook on low for 8-10 hours. After it's done, stir and enjoy. I call it three spirit stew because of the three different types of alcohol.
