Happy Saint Patricks Day!

Saint Patrick’s Day commemorates Saint Patrick, the most commonly recognised patron saint of Ireland. Did you know that the blue was the original colour associated with Saint Patrick? Over the years the colour of green and the association with Saint Patricks Day has grown. In the 1978 Rebellion Irish Soldiers wore full green uniforms on the 17th March in the hope of catching the public’s attention. It is said that Saint Patrick used the shamrock (a three – leaved plant), to explain the Holy Trinity to the pagan Irish. The Shamrock has been used ever since as a feature of the day.

In the early seventeenth century Saint Patrick’s Day was made an official feast day so what better way to celebrate Saint Patricks Day than an Irish themed recipe? 

Steak & Guinness Pie

Serves 4-6 People


• olive oil

• 3 medium onions, peeled and chopped

• 3 cloves of garlic, peeled and chopped

• 30g butter, plus extra for greasing

• 2 carrots, peeled and chopped

• 2 sticks of celery, trimmed and chopped

• 4 big mushrooms, peeled and sliced

• 1kg Stewing beef, cut into 2cm cubes

• a few sprigs of fresh rosemary, leaves picked and chopped or dried if you have that

• salt and black pepper

• 1 x 440ml can of Guinness

• 2 heaped tablespoons plain flour

• 200g freshly grated Cheddar cheese

• 500g ready-made all-butter puff pastry

• 1 large egg, beaten

Preheat the oven to 190ºC/375ºF/gas 5. In a large ovenproof pan, heat some of olive oil on a low heat. Add the onions and fry gently for about 10 minutes – try not to colour them too much. Turn the heat up, add the garlic, butter, carrots and celery and scatter in the mushrooms. Mix everything together before stirring in the beef, rosemary, a pinch of salt and a level teaspoon of pepper.

Fry fast for 3 or 4 minutes, then pour in the Guinness, stir in the flour and add just enough water to cover. Bring to a simmer, cover the pan with a lid and place in the preheated oven for about 1½ hours. Remove the pan from the oven and give the stew a stir. Put it back into the oven and continue to cook it for another hour, or until the meat is very tender and the stew is rich, dark and thick.  Remove from the heat and stir in half the cheese, season and leave to cool slightly.

Cut about a third of the pastry off the block. Dust a clean work surface with flour and roll both pieces of pastry out evenly with a floured rolling pin to the thickness of a pound coin. Butter a deep pie dish, then line with the larger sheet, leaving the edges dangling over the side. Tip the stew into your lined dish and even it out before sprinkling over the remaining cheese. Brush the edges of the pastry with a little beaten egg.

Cut the other rolled sheet of pastry to fit the top of the pie dish and criss-cross it lightly with a sharp knife. Place it over the top of the pie and fold the overhanging pastry on to the pastry lid to make it look nice and rustic. Brush the top with beaten egg, then bake the pie directly on the bottom of the oven for 45 minutes, until the pastry is cooked, puffed and golden.

Let us know how your pie turns out! If you send any pictures to [email protected] we will award the best pie with a £20 Bingo Bonus!
