Côtes du Rhône Red Salvages a Mediocre Beef in Beer Recipe

We tried a Supercook recipe called Seaman’s Stew.  Despite the title it was not fish-based.  It was beef and potatoes stewed in pale ale.  We used a tin of John Smith’s Bitter.  The beef was tender and tasty but we were not impressed with the flavours of the sauce.  We drank a bottle of Promenade Côtes du Rhône Villages 2008 from Tesco.  Fortunately, this versatile medium-bodied red went well with the stew and salvaged something from a not too brilliant food experience.
