Beef and Guinness Pot Pie
This pie is so full of flavor and so hearty to eat, you probably would get a couple of meals out of it. I had a couple of cans of Guinness and really enjoyed making this pie. Mostly I had lots of reasons to partake in a glass or two. This recipe only calls for a cup of Guinness. I sure didn’t want the rest of the can to go to waste, so I had to pour it into a glass and enjoy it. I also had to drink something while I was eating my pie. I had to made sure they tasted well together. It is a dirty job, but someone has to do it.
You could if you wanted to make individual pies for everyone, but I love to just delve out a bit on plates and serve it with a salad. This is what I call real comfort food. It is hearty on a cold day and lets face it, this winter has been bitterly cold almost everywhere.
Lets enjoy this while we wait for spring, shall we?
I think you could also freeze this. I would make a double batch of the meat and freeze it. Thaw it a day before you want to make this pie. I wouldn’t prepare the crust until you are ready to bake it. You could have this on your table in 30-40 minutes of you prepare ahead of time. This is great for those times when we have so much to do and want to put a hearty dinner on the table.
