Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Saute onions in olive oil. Add celery, mushrooms, and carrots.
  2. Add butter and garlic. Stir until coated. Cook about 1 minute over medium heat.

  4. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, rosemary.
  5. Add Guinness and enough beef broth to not quite cover the beef and vegetables.
  6. Add flour slowly so it won't lump and then stir. Cover and cook on medium low for 2 hours.
  7. Remove from pan, let cool a little. Mix in a small handful of the shredded cheese.
  8. Roll out pastry and place into a deep dish pie pan or casserole dish. Add meat filling. Top with one more handful of cheese.

This recipe was awesome! I was afraid it was going to taste like beer because I am not a beer drinker but it didn't taste like it had any beer in it. I did this recipe minus the carrots and the mushrooms because I don't like them and instead doubled the celery. I also used dried minced garlic for the fresh and used a beef bouillon packet for the beef stock. Would definitely make again. Thanks for posting this recipe!

Prepared almost exactly as shown and it was DELICIOUS ! I added more than a pinch of rosemary and used Shitake mushrooms. Would give more than 5 stars if I could.
