Happy St Patrick's Day everyone, and what better way to celebrate than this delicious Steak and Guinness pie!
We all know that the classic combination of steak and ale goes well together when it comes to making a pie, but the combination of steak and Guinness is mouth wateringly good! This recipe includes a rather small amount of ingredients but it certainly won’t lack in flavour. This steak and Guinness pie is something you can prepare and leave in the oven to cook while you carry on with something else, and a perfect way to celebrate St Patrick's Day 2016!
- 675g of diced braising steak
- 4 sticks of celery
- 2 heaped teaspoons of plain flour
- 1 bottle of 500ml Guinness
- 1 small handful of herbs (rosemary, thyme and bay leaf)
- 1 carrot
- 2 400g tins of chopped tomatoes
- 500 of pre packed puff pastry
- 1 egg
- Olive Oil
Step 1-Start by taking the your beef and seasoning to taste with the salt and pepper. Sprinkle the beef with flour and ensure it is well covered.
Step 2-Pour 2 to 3 large glugs of olive oil in to heated casserole dish or frying pan and fry the beef until it is browned.
Step 3- Add in the onion and fry for a minute or so, then add the carrots, celery and the herbs in to the pan. Cook all of this for a further 5 minutes before adding in the bottle of Guinness.
Step 4-Add the chopped tomatoes and bring to the boil. Give it a good stir and allow it to slow cook for a further 2 hours until the meat is tender.
Step 5-After 2 hours check how it is doing. The sauce should have thickened and all of the ingredients should have provided a delicious flavour. Add further seasoning if you think it needs it.
Step 6-Now it is time to pre heat your oven. Set it to 190 degrees Celsius or gas mark 5. Place the meat filling and sauce in to a large pie tin.
Step 7-Roll out your puff pastry and place it over the pie tin. Please make sure it is slightly bigger than the tin itself.
Step 8-Beat the egg and then brush the edge of your tin with it. Place the pastry on top of the large pie tin and use the extra pastry around the outside of the dish to secure it. Use a knife to score the pastry on top and brush with more of the egg.
Step 9-Place the pie on a baking tray or in a roasting tin and place in the middle of your pre heated oven for around 45 minutes. You will know it is done when it turns a golden colour and starts to bubble around the edge of the pastry.
Step 10-Allow the pie to cool for a few minutes before serving, and that’s it! This delicious steak and Guinness pie is ready to be served. We recommend serving with some delicious new potatoes and some green beans!
