The hot paprika in this recipe gives the stew a nice kick. If you are concerned about spice however, feel free to substitute regular paprika instead.

  1. Just double checked this recipe and it does have beer in it….well I don’t drink beer and doubt you can just buy one can !!! Any ideas for a substitution ? My Son-in-law is a Pastor and he would not eat it if he knew it had beer in it….. even tho they say the alcohol is cooked out, I still doubt he would eat it….. I have tasted it when my husband would drink one, but I think it taste terrible…..but heard it is good in cooking…..never used it tho in any cooking I have done…. so just omit it or add something else ???? I will wait for your answer….lol

    P.S. Just want to tell you my Son-in-law just won a Brand New Ford, from a Ford Dealer…..what good news that was…..they are so thankful …..so thank God for letting him win this car….:)

    • You can often buy single bottles of beer now at stores. I know of several stores around here that have coolers of single bottles now. I hate the taste of beer, but the stew is rich and yummy :) I’ve read that you can use ginger ale as a beer substitution in cooking, but I have never tried it. I think I would simply just omit it in this case.

      How wonderful about the truck!! What a blessing :D

  2. I am definitely loving this recipe! I love cooking with alcohol whether it’s wine, beer, hard cider or guinness! I can just imagine dipping some freshly baked bread into this stew!

  3. I usually use normal paprika but only because didn’t know about hot paprika! This is the kind of stew I love to have in the evening, nothing better than a comforting stew after a long day at work!
