stout pie 3Directions:



- 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.

- Transfer the braised meat from the pan to the vegetables and keep on low heat.

- 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.

- Add in the rosemary, beef stock and the rest of the beer, reduce until a thick, dark gravy forms.

- Add the gravy to the rest of the filling, combine well and add the ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, and parsley.

- Add salt and pepper to taste


Assembly & Baking 

- Lay two of the four crust into 6” greased, pie tins, fill with filling then lay the other crust on top

- Fold the edges of the crust inwards and press firmly with a fork to seal the crust

- Poke 2-3 holes in the top of the crust to allow steam to escape.

- Bake for 40 mins at 350º

- Remove the pies, beat an egg and brush on top of the crust before returning the pies to the oven for an additional 10-15 mins or until golden brown.
