Default Comfort Food

I had to do some grocery shopping last night. It was snowing on the way to the store and I was thinking a nice hot bowl of soup would really hit the spot.
As I was walking past the meat department I noticed they were advertising fresh Utah lamb. Grabbed some lamb and vegetables and stopped by the liquor store on the way home for some Guinness.
After simmering in the crock pot all night I am now eating a bowl of Guinness Stew watching the weather try to decide if it's going to snow or rain.
Now that hits the spot on a cold miserable day!

That looks so good! I'm really into comfort food right now myself and I've actually cooked about three meals in the last week!

We get a lamb each fall, and we'll be picking it up on Saturday- I'm thinking lamb stew with stout is exactly what I need to do! Thanks for the photo, and the idea.

Never had lamb. That looks good though.

I'd actually swap Guinness for another stout. Not much into the Dry Irish variety.

Lamb chops with mint jelly are amazing. I love lamb rare, which many people can't stomach for some reason. The gamier the meat, the redder I want it!

While it is pretty "meh" drinking it, Guinness is perfect for lamb stews. It has just enough flavor to make things interesting but it doesn't impart any roast or bitterness.

Ha, I can understand that with some meats, though find your self a halal butcher and cook yourself a rare mutton chop. If that doesn't change your opinion, good god!
