This cold weather here in Toronto really calls for a nice meat stew for this Friday Dinner! Using beer as liquid adds a rich flavor for soups and stews. I prefer using dark beer with a roasted fuller taste such as a stout or an ale.

Adding the potatoes and vegetables to the stew make this a perfect one pot dinner. This week I just added parsnips but of course if you want to and have handy at home you can add other root vegetables such as carrots and turnip.

Serve with a dollop of sour cream or crème fraîche on top gives this stew a creamy finish!

In Sweden we often serve our stews with a jelly such as black current or rowan berry. I know this is not common in all culture but if you like to give it a try! The sweetness is a nice break from the savory of this dish.

The recipe can be found of top in Swedish and English! And of course serve the stew with some beer!

Remember Life is too short to not eat and drink well!
Enjoy!
