Of all the major food groups, which two are the most important? Meat and Guinness, of course. So rejoice, all ye who fret about your health. There's now a simple way to get your recommended daily allowance of both: Waddle over to McGonigel's Mucky Duck (2425 Norfolk, 528-5999) and order the beef Guinness ($8.95). The name's prosaic, I will admit, but wait till you see it: Basically a beef stew, it's served in a toasted bread bowl and comes to the table looking like a Coca Loca. It tastes fantastic. The beef, marinated in Guinness and sugar, is so tender I quite expected it to waft off the plate. Isn't it nice when something this delicious is good for you as well
