Beef and Guinness Pie for National Pie Day January 23rd 2019

Dad's Delicious Dinners Beef & Guinness Pie cooked

RatingDifficultyBeginner

With it being National Pie Day today I thought I would treat the kids to one of my favourites. I already had the diced beef in the freezer from a yellow sticker haul previously and I had a can of Guinness leftover from Christmas, so didn't really need to buy much. For speed I did buy ready rolled puff pastry.

Dad's Delicious Dinners Beef & Guinness Pie cooked

Yields4 Servings
Prep Time15 minsCook Time1 hr 20 minsTotal Time1 hr 35 mins

 500 g Diced Beef
 25 g Flour
 50 g Unsalted butter
 2 Onions, roughly chopped
 2 Cloves of garlic
 2 Carrots, roughly chopped
 300 ml Guiness
 250 ml Beef stock
 Ready rolled puff pastry

1

I poured the flour into a bowl and seasoned it. Then chucked the beef in to the bowl and made sure it was coated well. After heating half the butter in a pan, I chucked the meat in, to colour and seer.

2

Next, I added all the vegetables, Guinness and stock. I brought it all to a boil and reduced the heat to a simmer, covered and let it cook for an hour. I checked and gave it a little stir every now and then. Just before the hour, I chucked in the remaining butter.

This gave me a chance to make some cupcakes with the little lady.

3

I chucked the cooked mixture into four individual pie dishes (you can use on dish if you like). I then cut the pastry to fit on top, pinching the edges to make it stick and finally brushed the Beaton egg over the top. Before baking them ate 180 degrees for 20 minutes or so until they were golden brown on top.

I served them with some vegetables I had in the fridge.

  1. Lovely pies! Wish I had one right this minute! I usually put wine or Newcastle in my beef pies, but I think I’ll pick up a Guinness for the next one. #BlogCrush

    1. Mmmm. The idea of Newcastle Brown Ale sounds delicious, I will try that next! Thank you. I used Guinness because I still had a can left from Christmas. It’s sometimes nice to have some traditional comfort food. Especially this time of year.

  2. How did I miss National Pie Day?? We love pies in our house, especially in winter – good homely grub! This sounds delicious. I have to admit we normally just stick to a chicken pie recipe I’ve been doing for years, but maybe it’s time to branch out a little…! #blogcrush

    1. I am the same. I have a go to Chicken Pie recipe. However when I had some beef from a yellow sticker haul and some Guinness left over from Christmas, I thought I would make the effort this time and it was really worth it. #blogcrush
