About this recipe: Beef steak and veggies seasoned with Guinness beer into a hearty pie.
This is a nice recipe but I think it may be better with a beef stock instead of tinned tomatoes. It's a personal preference but I'd prefer a more rich, beefy flavour than a tangy, tomatoey flavour. Also, I think next time, I'll cook the beef VERY slowly in a low oven as it's tricky not to overheat it when cooking over the hob. - 29 Aug 2010 (Review from Allrecipes UK | Ireland)
Something else. Can I suggest you make a simple shortcrust pastry and use it as a base in the baking tin or dish, the combination of the shortcrust and the puff pastry goes great with any pie. - 09 Aug 2008 (Review from Allrecipes UK | Ireland)
Altered ingredient amounts. I made this with silverside steak instead of braising and I used only one celery stick instead of four. Found this recipe absolutely gorgeous, thanks a million. - 29 Jul 2010 (Review from Allrecipes UK | Ireland)
