August Meat Pie: Guinness, Steak, Cheese, & BACON

Today this

became this!

Out of all the ones I’ve made so far this year, the March Steak & Guinness pie has been my favorite. So I decided to make it again, but this time with bacon!

Here are the ingredients:

1.5 lbs New York sirloin (sort of diced)
3 onions sliced
Sprig of rosemary
6 cloves of garlic – minced
2 sticks celery – finely sliced
2 carrot sticks – finely sliced
6-8 baby portabella mushrooms – sliced
1 bottle Guinness Extra Stout
1 heaping tbsp flour
1 cup beef stock
1 cup of crushed up bacon
2 cups shredded white cheddar cheese

You brown the meat and sautee the onions in a pot. Then you add the other ingredients to make a nice stew. (But only add enough of the beef stock to just barely cover the meat.)

Than you cook the stew in the oven at 350 degrees F for a couple hours. Then you add half the cheese and mix it. Finally, pour it into the pie crust, top with the rest of the cheese, then bake at 350 for another 40-45 minutes.

Viola! Not only does your house smell great, you get a great tasting pie. 🙂
