Guinness Beef Pie

Guinness Beef Pie


  • 4 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 ½ lbs. CARE Certified beef sirloin, cubed
  • ½ yellow onion, peeled and small diced
  • 2 stalks of celery, small diced
  • 1 carrot, peeled and small diced
  • 1 cup cremini mushrooms, quartered
  • 1 parsnip, peeled and small diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely minced
  • 3 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup Guinness beer
  • 1 cup beef stock
  • 2 tsp. fresh parsley, finely minced
  • 2 tsp. fresh thyme, finely minced
  • 1 sheet puff pastry
  • 1 whisked egg
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  2. Add 2 Tbsp. of olive oil to a cast iron skillet over high heat and sear the cubed beef until lightly browned and cooked through. Set aside.
  3. Return the pan to the burner and add the remaining 2 Tbsp. of olive oil. Sauté the onions, celery, carrots, mushrooms, parsnips and garlic for 3-4 minutes or until lightly browned.
  4. Stir in the flour until combined and then add the Guinness, beef stock and cooked, cubed beef. Cook over medium heat until the sauce becomes very thick, about 3-4 minutes.
  5. Finish by stirring in the parsley, thyme, salt and pepper until combined.
  6. Remove the pan from the burner and place the puff pastry sheet over top. Trim around the pan and discard excess puff pastry.
  7. Brush the top off the puff pastry with the whisked egg and bake at 375°F for 18-20 minutes or until browned and cooked. Note: there will be plenty of whisked egg left over.
  8. Serve.
