Guinness Slow Cooker Beef Pot Pie

I tweaked a couple of recipes I saw on this site because I didn't have some of the ingredients in my cupboard. So, I added a tin of cream of mushroom/onion soup and more herbs. This recipe is thick. You'll need to use a deep casserole dish. I used my white corningware dish (approx. 4" deep). If you're looking for a "stew" consistency just add more beer and water. This should easily feed 6, but we're feeding 3 growing teenagers. Every last morsel was hungrily consumed in no time.

Directions

  1. In a large bowl toss stewing beef with flour, salt & pepper. In large skillet heat oil and brown beef, approximately 10 minutes.
  2. Place beef and all ingredients except mushroom soup in slow cooker.
  3. Cook on high for approximately 5-6 hours.
  4. Turn off the cooker and pour in condensed soup, thoroughly mix.
  5. Set oven to 350F deg.
  6. Roll out enough puff pastry to cover your dish.
  7. Spray your casserole dish with non-stick cooking spray. Spoon stew mixture into casserole and cover completely with puff pastry.
  8. Place dish on foil covered cookie sheet and bake until pastry is "puffed up" and golden. Let stand for 10 minutes to set and serve with your fav. veggie/side salad.

This is a very delicious filling if you make a couple changes: (1) After cooking the filling, discard it's liquid; (2) Mix one-half jar of beef gravy with 2.5 tsp. brown sugar; (3) Mix it with the filling. This recipe gets the credit for the flavor complexity it provided.
