It's amazing how many flavors of beer there are these days- there's even one that tastes like sticky toffee pudding! Well, I didn't taste the actual sticky toffee pudding in the beer itself, as it was 5 months past the date on the bottle(but still edible, albeit less flavorful). The sticky toffee pudding I tasted in the stew was from the actual sticky toffee pudding I put into the stew.
Otherwise this stew was just like any other stew I've made in the past, although it could've used more vegetables in it, as I had to throw out some of the turnips that were blue or green(yuck!).
Since this stew has beer in it, my dad declined tasting it(even though the beer I put in is only 5% alcohol).

You will need:
For the cooking equipment:
A large saucepan
A small bowl
For the stew:
10 oz. broccoli
10 oz. turnips
15.5 oz. drained pink beans
2 tsp. fish bouillon dissolved in 2 cups hot water
11 oz. sticky toffee pudding beer
Pinch of marjoram
Pinch of allspice
Pinch of garlic powder
Pinch of onion powder
Pinch of black pepper
Pinch of salt
5 oz. sticky toffee pudding(see HELPFUL LINK)
For the thickener:
1/4 cup of water
1 tsp. of sugar
1 tbsp. of lemon juice
2 tbsp. of all-purpose flour
1. Put all stew ingredients except for the sticky toffee pudding into a large saucepan.
2. Bring the stew to a boil on the stove. Once it's boiling, reduce it to a simmer but do not cover the pot! You have to make sure the pot doesn't overflow! Let the stew simmer for 45 minutes.
3. While the stew is simmering, you can make the thickener. Just put all thickener into a small bowl. Mix all the ingredients together.
4. When the stew is done simmering, turn the stove off.
5. Pour the thickener into the stew. Mix the thickener into the stew using a spoon.
6. Bring it to a boil again. Once it's boiling, reduce it to a simmer. Do not cover it. Let the stew simmer for an additional 3 minutes.
7. Once the stew is done simmering a second time, take the saucepot off of the stove. Mix the sticky toffee pudding into the stew. Break apart the pudding so that you get pieces of it throughout the stew. Let the stew cool for 5-10 minutes before eating.
8. Serve with wonton strips or garlic bread. Bon appetit!
