- Combine the flour & salt in a large, steel or ceramic mixing bowl and put in the freezer for 30 minutes

- Cut the butter into small cubes and put in the freezer for 30 minutes

- Cut in butter to the flour until there are small pea-sized pieces of butter and return to the freezer for 10 mins

- Add a small amount of ice water at a time and gently mix until a shaggy dough forms. Divide into 4 and return to the freezer for 10 minutes

- Roll out the dough balls into 9” rounds and lay onto a plate with parchment or wax paper in between. Return them to the freezer until the filling is ready.




- Using two pans; begin braising the meat in one pan, allowing a good dark crust to form. In the other, begin browning the onions, mushrooms, carrots and garlic in butter or oil.

- In the empty meat pan; on medium-high heat, deglaze with a small amount of the beer and add the butter and 1 tablespoon of flour, cook until the flour becomes fragrant.
