I don’t think that Guinness tastes like Guinness unless you drink it Ireland
I bought a pack of stewing steak with the intention of making something rather nice involving Guinness, but with mr 5 being in hospital I had to have a rethink, I didn’t really fancy stew 3 days running, neither did I want to cook only a small amount of meat at a time, but I did need to eat, so I put the meat into a casserole dish with some water and red wine and put it in the oven for 3 hours while I cut back my overgrown Jasmine and had a think..
I had a little bit of filo pastry in the fridge, I was going to use it up in something and take it with me at the weekend, but I ran out of time.
With half of it I decided to stick with the original plan and made
Little guinness pies:
I cooked off some onion, carrot and then mushrooms, added the meat..
and poured in some Guinness..
I don’t think that Guinness tastes like Guinness unless you drink it Ireland, over here it tastes like a totally different drink, I think it’s to do with the water..
I simmered it for about half an hour, then thickened it up with some Bisto.
Topped it with the filo pastry, which had dried out a bit..
and then baked it in the oven until the pastry had browned..
I had it with new potatoes and leeks.
It was really nice..
I shall have to make it for us both soon..
