This is excellent! The only change I made in the recipe is to add in another carrot and next time I'll add a third. Even though this takes "time" it doesn't need constant attention. Once it's in the pot on the stove, you really can walk away and let it cook with a stir in the middle. From there, into the pie plate, top with the puff pastry and into the oven. We had our salad course while this was on its last ten minutes in the oven. We let it rest about 5-10 minutes before cutting into it. It was still piping hot. The flavors in this are wonderful and complex, far more interesting and satisfying than a traditional 'beef stew' recipe provides. My guests were able to pick out the bacon flavor and also identified the Guiness accurately. I served this with a simple salad course, savory scones, and steamed white asparagus along side. Definitely worth your time and good enough for company.
