"I agree with others... Very little taste, little on the sweet side, and what taste there was wasn't spectacular. Probably won't try this one again."

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

"Although salt needs to be added to this recipe, it was an easy to fix and easy to clean up meal. After a long day at work, coming home to the aroma of honey and roasted beef was better than the welcome mat. My kids loved it too!"
