Oh this is just the absolute BEST Steak and Guinness Pie! Super tasty, rich, meaty pie filling topped with flaky puff pastry. A delicious, easy family meal idea.

Our Steak & Guinness Pie is a delicious, warming, satisfying family meal.

And best of all it’s super easy to make! We cook the rich steak pie filling in the slow cooker and then top with shop bought puff pastry sheet and finish in the oven.

Super easy, super tasty and oh so good to eat! Especially with a side of chunky chips and rivers of meaty gravy.

It’s a great meal idea for celebrating St Patricks Day!

How to make the best Steak and Guinness Pie

Our Beef and Guinness pie filling is super easy to make, no need to brown any ingredients just add them, stir and go!

  • Heat the slow cooker – preheat the slow cooker on the low setting.
  • Lightly oil the inside of the slow cooker pan – just rub a tsp of olive oil around the inside with a piece of kitchen roll.
  • Add all the Steak & Guinness pie filling ingredients – put the braising steak, onions, carrots, celery, honey, beef stock and Guinness into the slow cooker and season well with salt and cracked black pepper.
  • Give the steak pie filling a stir – stir everything together gently, put the lid on and cook on low for around 8 hours.
  • Thicken the pie filling – once the steak and Guinness pie filling is cooked, if it needs thickening just do this by using a couple of tsp of cornflour mixed into a paste with cold water and then stirred through the pie filling. The gravy will thicken up nicely ready to fill the pie.

If you wanted to eat this as a Steak & Guinness stew – then do so – skip the pie making and load that stew onto your plate with mash or chips.

Make the Beef and Guinness Pie

  • Heat the oven – preheat the oven to 200C / 400F / Gas Mark 6
  • Pour the steak and Guinness pie filling into a pie dish – if you don’t have a pie dish just use a medium sized roasting tin – this is a rustic pie, you don’t need anything fancy.
  • Add the puff pastry – unroll the pastry sheet – I use Jus-Rol puff pastry for this beef in Guinness pie. Put it on top of your steak pie filling – with any leftovers you can make a little shamrock pastry decoration.
  • Make a shamrock pastry decoration – you can use a heart cookie cutter to make a shamrock – cut out three hearts and a little stem then arrange on top of the pie.
  • Brush the pie with beaten egg – add an egg wash to the top of the pie.
  • Bake the Steak and Guinness pie – bake the pie in the oven for around 25-35 minutes or until the pastry is puffed up, cooked through and golden brown.

What to serve with Steak & Guinness Pie

Steak and Guinness Pie is just delicious served with a whole load of side dishes – try…

  • Mustard mash – a delicious mustard flavoured mashed potatoes, super easy to make.
  • Colcannon – Steak and Guinness Pie goes just great with the Irish classic of mash with cabbage and leeks and our colcannon recipe is so delicious!
  • Chunky chips – I usually use McCain crinkle cut chips to go alongside a nice easy steak pie. They’ re tasty and cook in just 24 minutes, alongside the pie.
  • Onion gravy – you just can’t beat a jug of thick, delicious onion gravy to go with your beef pie and chips! Get our cheat’s Bisto onion gravy here – it’s perfect with pie!
  • Vegetable side dishes – add a few bowls of vegetables, buttered peas, steamed broccoli or sweetcorn all work well with our tasty Guinness pie recipe.

Make Steak Pie your way!

  • Cook the pie filling in the oven – no slow cooker – no worries, just cook the stew in the oven on 180C for around 2-3 hours. Keep a check on the stock though, you may need to add more when cooking in the oven.
  • Add more vegetables – want more vegetables in your pie – load that stew with chopped parsnips and swedes.
  • Make it with shortcrust pastry – swap the puff pastry sheet for some shortcrust pastry – it’ll taste just as good.
