MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 22, 2014

It cooked well, but the sauce was way too sweet and not very interesting.

MY REVIEW

how would i adjust the honey... I tasted it this morning and it seems to be very much on the sweeter side (I had it cooking on a very low setting in my crockpot all night)

I wasn't inspired by this dish. We felt it lacked in flavor... sorry. I really wanted to like this recipe.

I have made this many times. I do not use stout but extra beef broth. It is excellent and very flavorful.
