    Ambrosia is one of my all time favorite comfort foods and this is a very good recipe. It's great for pot lucks.

    There are other versions of this stew recipe online but I used the one from the Delicious Disney cookbook.
    Canadian liquor commissions are frustrating to deal with (not to mention far more expensive than the USA), and they wouldn't let me buy just 1 bottle of Guinness Stout. In the name of the economy, and because I didn’t want to be stuck with a case of beer that I will never drink, I bought a can of dark German beer instead, which I was assured was just like Stout. Since I neither like nor drink any beer, I definitely wouldn't know the difference.

    There were 2 cups of beer in the can, so I dumped all of it into the stew (rather than half in the garbage) and I used all the beef broth in the tetra box (about 4 cups I think). I simmered the stew for about an hour and a half, and it wasn’t really reduced by 1/3. I ended up with far too much broth, but that’s okay because I’m going to brown more beef cubes tomorrow and add them. My DS liked the dish and I thought it was OK. I’m sure using real Guinness (and less of it) would make this taste different. I was planning to make the biscuits from another Disney recipe but ran out of time (because American Idol was starting, LOL).

    Guinness Stew
    from Rose & Crown, Epcot (from Delicious Disney)
    Serves 6 - 8

    2 pounds sirloin cubes
    1/2 cup all purpose flour
    2 Tbsp ounce olive oil
    2 dry bay leaves
    1 large clove garlic, chopped
    1 cup diced yellow onion
    1/2 cup diced carrots
    1 Tbsp chopped fresh thyme
    1 Tbsp chopped fresh rosemary
    ¼ teaspoon red chili flakes
    1 cup Guinness stout
    1 quart (4 cups) beef broth

    Place steak and flour in a plastic bag; seal bag and shake vigorously to coat.
    Heat oil in a large, heavy-bottomed stockpot; add steak and cook over medium-high heat until browned, stirring occasionally. Reserve remaining flour in bag.

    Add bay leaves, garlic, onions, and carrots, and cook about 5 minutes, until tender. Sprinkle in remaining flour; cook one minute, stirring constantly. Add the thyme, rosemary, and chili flakes. Slowly stir in Guinness Stout while scraping the bottom of the pan to loosen any particles. Stir until smooth, thickened, and bubbly. Season with salt and pepper. Simmer 10 minutes.

    Slowly stir in beef broth and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 1 hour. Stew will thicken and reduce by at least 1/3. Discard bay leaves before serving.

    Cook’s note: To thicken stew if wanted, make a slurry of 1 ounce cornstarch and 2 ounces water and add to stew while at a simmer.

    Along with the Guinness Stew I made Greek Salad and decided to try the recipe in the Epcot Food and Wine Festival cookbook. Normally I wouldn’t use a recipe for Greek salad, but since a lot of the Epcot recipes are basic (things like cabbage rolls, lasagna etc.) I figured I might as well give it a try. It was actually very good, and everyone who tried it liked it a lot.

    BTW, the recipes the countries use in the Epcot Food and Wine Festival seem to be recycled frequently over the years. I mean does China EVER serve something other than Sha Cha Chicken?? Or does Canada ever have a dish without maple syrup? A lot of the recipes in the 2007 book can be found all over the Internet from previous years.

    Greek Salad with Pita Bread
    Epcot Food and Wine Festival, Greece
    Serves 6

    3 Vine-ripened tomatoes, cut into ½” thick wedges
    1 red onion, sliced into thin rings
    1 cucumber, peeled and cut into ½” cubes
    2 small green bell peppers, seeded and cut into thin strips
    1 cup Kalamata olives (I used pitted)
    6 ounces feta cheese, coarsely crumbled
    2 cups shredded Romaine lettuce

    Dressing
    3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
    1/3 cup olive oil
    2 teaspoons dried oregano
    salt and freshly ground black pepper

    Pita Bread

    1. In a large mixing bowl, combine all the salad ingredients.
    2. Season the salad with the lemon juice, olive oil, and oregano. Toss all the ingredients until they are well coated with the dressing and add salt and pepper to taste.
    3. Divide the salad among 6 plates and serve accompanied with warm toasted pita bread.

    The Disney Cinnamon Rolls recipe is great! I made them yesterday. Maybe I didn't do it quite right, but they weren't exactly like they are there (they never are, right) but the recipe is far superior to any cinnamon roll recipe I've ever tried. Thanks!

    I'm still surprised how good this was considering the only tomatoes I could find were clearly not vine-ripened and the green pepper was downright bitter! I know this would be even better in the summer.

    I love cooking Greek recipes. So often they are simple recipes with "simple" ingredients yet with tremendous flavor! The dressing in this recipe is a perfect example. Of course, I would leave out the olives. :scared: I know, strange for a person who loves Greek food! heehee I love bread dipped in good olive oil, yet olives are nasty! And then there are grapes and capers. The only three things I will not eat!

    Okay, I think I found one that's not listed. While I absolutely love :lovestruc the Almond Crusted Cheesecake at Narcoossee's, my niece feels the same way about the White Chocolate Cheesecake at Kona's. In fact, when we were able to arrange for her to join us on our last visit (as a surprise for my DD8-DN25 is in Utah at grad school) the thing she wanted to make sure of was that we were going to go to Kona's during her visit. I assured her that we would be going twice, once on the night of her arrival-she was very happy! :goodvibes And while she liked the one at Narcoossee's, her heart still lies with the one from Kona. :lovestruc

    I tried doing a search and couldn't find it anywhere-anyone have it?

    TIA! :disrocks:
