Nothing beats a pie made with flaky pastry. The addition of Guinness makes this an Irish classic.

Ingredients

Oil spray

2 x 3 second spray(s)

Trimmed beef chuck steak

320 g, (buy 400g), fat trimmed, chopped

Plain flour

1¼ cup(s), (185g)

Brown onion

1 medium, sliced

Instructions

  1. Toss the steak pieces in 2 tbs of plain flour. Lightly spray a deep saucepan with oil. Add the steak and fry for 5 minutes.
  2. Add the onion, celery and carrots to the pan. Cook for 10 minutes, adding a little water if they start to stick. Add the mushrooms and cook for 5 minutes. Add in the Guinness, bay leaves and brown sugar. Cover and simmer for 2 hours, until the beef is tender.
  3. Sift 150g flour into a bowl and rub in the spread to make crumbs. Stir in 3-4 tbs water to make pastry, wrap in cling wrap and chill for 30 minutes. Roll out the dough on a work surface dusted with 1 tbs flour. Slice into strips. Spoon the beef into an ovenproof dish and lay the strips over to form a lattice.
