    p.342 - I actually made this a year ago but forgot to post! Gosh this was good - really, really good! Oh, and the house smelled amazing! Now this isn’t a dish you can whip up after a day at work, nope not at all. JO has you braise it for a couple of hours so this dish needs time. I worked from home today just to accommodate this pie! I have to say I was skeptical when I read the meat wasn’t floured, I couldn’t imagine making a steak pie without doing this. That said, I thought I’d put our fate in JO’s hands and went w his idea. What emerges from the oven is a fabulously aromatic, rich and truly scrumptious bit of steak pie heaven. The flavours were well balanced and I was especially surprised by the deep, rich flavours in the sauce given that the only liquids added were Guinness and water. Hat’s off to JO and the Irish, this was a huge hit.

    What a superb pie !! So delicious and tasty. If feeling lazy, just use packaged puff pastry. I also added more mushrooms (as I love them) A great winter dish...or anytime really !!

    The best pie I've ever made! You can taste the beer but it is not at all overpowering, and the meat was meltingly tender. I used sirloin tip roast. I'll be making this again and again.
