A good stew is a standby for winter dinner time in our house. But when it starts getting closer to St. Patrick's Day, or I'm trying to impress my brother who is obsessed with all things Irish, I reach for the Guinness. This year, I decided to try my hand at making it in my trusty Hamilton Beach stovetop safe slow cooker!
Browning the meat is essential to any good stew but before I had this slow cooker that always meant another dirty pan. But no more! The insert pops out and goes straight onto the stovetop.
