"A traditional steak and Guinness pie done by my favorite British chef, Jamie Oliver. This is made particularly easy by using puff pastry for the top pie layer! If you want to skip the puff pastry layer, you could serve this as a normal stew. The herbs listed are just a suggestion. Jamie typically leaves the amount and type up to the cooks' personal tastes. He suggests a "handful". I did change the recipe a little bit from his, due to personal preferences. Feel free to substitute out the Guinness and use beef stock instead. Pure comfort food. :)"

"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."
"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! :-)"
"Where are the amounts for the parsnips and celery?"
"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"
"This was so tasty and great for a cold winters dinner. I made individual pot pies. Made for ZWT 6 by an Unrulies Under The Influence."
