This recipe came from Campbell's soup and even though its not the real thing its a great and easy recipe for a cold winters night. I serve with mashed potatoes and vegetables, but would be just as great served on its own.

Loved it! My husband said it was the best meat pie he'd had! We don't normally have home made pies in a Tuesday (which may explain my husbands excitement) but this made it so easy, even after getting the kids to bed. So tasty!
Nice and easy to put together and the stout wasn't over powering just very subtle in flavour. I made it as a whole pie (and think I could have served up to 5 or 6) - for 3 I used just over half. Served with mashed potato and steamed vegetables. Will definately trying again and maybe experimenting with some other vegetables (mushrooms or corn kernels) and maybe even add some crispy bacon. Thank you Tisme, made for Edition 8 - Make My Recipe.
We won't do this often, but it was great for St. Patrick's day. It was easy to put together, although I only filled 3 containers. I've never had mincemeat before. It's really an interesting mix. And it smells so good! Warmed up well, too.
