This was so so good. I loved the flavors, it was even worth using the oven in the heat. I made an individual portion and have one to freeze as well. Since i was making small portion I decided to use sirloin instead of stewing beef, just ensured tenderness.
This is a full-on winner. Delicious, hearty, full-bodied like a steak and guiness pie should be.
Went with 1/2 of recommended beer and replaced with beef stock. Mine was more liquidy than I expected so I just used a slotted spoon to get the stew into a baking dish and reserved the gravy. Made Champ to go with the pie (recipe on this site) and poured the gravy over the champ. Delicious!
This pie absolutely made my day! Very hearty and delicious! I didn't find puff pastry in the local grocery stores, so I picked up a Pillsbury Crescent sheet. It worked perfectly fine. Instead of cooking the ingredients in Guinness, I dissolved one cube of beef bouillon in 2 cups of hot water. Didn't have fresh herbs on hand, so I used dried rosemary. The flavor was still excellent. Will definitely be making this again. Next time, I will try with Guinness. Thank you so much for posting this amazing recipe!
Where are the amounts for the parsnips and celery?
Great flavor, however the Guiness was a bit too strong for my family's liking. Next time I will cut the stout in half and replace it with the equivalent amount of beef broth.
Lovely hearty stew. I did find the Guinness taste was a little overpowering so I added half cup of beef broth after the first hour of simmering. More changes that I made were adding 4 smashed cloves of garlic and I used dried herbs as I have none fresh. I will certainly be making this again, thank you! :-)
This really was such lovely comfort food, I followed the recipe except for one thing, I served the carrot as a side vegetable. definately a winner and I will be making it again, thanks!
Fabulous! I used potato instead of parsnip. My bro in law loved it.
so yummy. i made this with a pie crust instead of puff pastry, since that's what i had. i'll definitely be making this again. thanks
