You can substitute any beer for the Guinness if you can't get it, a full-bodied dark beer would be best. You should be able to buy it by the (large) can. Buy an extra to drink with dinner.... This is an easy dinner - start it, then ignore it for 30 minutes.

Okay, so it's not an Italian recipe - but it would be if they'd thought of it.... The last of the green tomatoes from the garden would be perfect, but regular, red ones from the store are fine, also. For a change, we do not want vine-ripened, juicy, red, perfect tomatoes.

A classic for St. Patrick's Day but a great cold-weather dish anytime. Slow braising makes the beef meltingly tender and the beer adds a robust flavor. Serve with 'Jacket Potatoes': potatoes baked in their skin and a staple in Ireland. This makes enough for 4 or 2 meals for 2.

Traditional baked potatoes, very simple, always tasty. I can only get thin-skinned, waxy potatoes so I boil them, skin on. If you can, get a proper baking potato and bake in their 'jackets'. Cooking times depend on size.
