I have always loved meat pies. I remember being excited when there was leftover roast beef because I knew we would have beef pot pie the next day. And it doesn’t have to be beef, chicken pot pie or even a veggie pot pie works for me.
I am not sure why the meat pie the tastes better than the lovely roast beef but maybe, its the crust topping or maybe, the flavors have more time to marry. Either way, I would rather have the meat pie than the roast. But of course, this is a very rich meat pie, the seasonings are amazing and the lager adds a roasted dark wheaty taste.
Guinness lager is not something we drink often but it seems to add to our St Patrick’s Day fun especially if we enjoy a couple pints alongside this meal. We even have these awesome Guinness Irish Pint Glasses to continue the theme of the day.
This Steak and Guinness Pie can be made ahead of time and the Irish Soda Bread Topping can be added just prior to baking.
But you really don’t have to wait for St Paddy’s Day to enjoy this rich dish.
