Beef and Guinness Pie
12 inches Pie pastry
2 pounds Round steak
1 tablespoon Flour
1 tablespoon Brown sugar
1 tablespoon Raisins
5 medium onions, peeled and chopped
1 bottle Guinness stout
8 slices of bacon
3 tablespoons butter
Dice the steak and dust with flour.
In a large pot over medium-high heat, brown the steak, bacon and onions in butter, then transfer to a casserole pan.
Add raisins and brown sugar and Guinness. Cover and simmer for 2-2.5 hours, stirring occasionally. If necessary, add water if the gravy becomes too thick.
Coat a pie dish with half of the pastry and bake. Add the meat and gravy mixture and place the remaining pastry on top.
Bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown.
Serve with potatoes and vegetables.
