    Made it vegetarian. To make this recipe completely suitable for vegetarians just use a strong Ale instead of the Guinness and ensure a vegetarian Worcestershire sauce is used (as many contain anchovies). Alternatively leave the Worcestershire sauce out completely as this still makes a delicious pie.  -  17 Feb 2011  (Review from Allrecipes UK | Ireland)


    I used Quorn steak strips for this which worked really well. Taste is great but next time I'll just use the pastry just as a lid as the bottom layer made it slightly stodgy and had absorbed lots of the lovely juice by day 2 – would probably use slightly less potatoes (or smaller ones) and slightly more mushrooms next time too. Also used a stong ale and held off on the w sauce. Really tasty winter warmer for both meat eaters and veggies.  -  20 Oct 2011  (Review from Allrecipes UK | Ireland)
