I modified this recipe, mostly because I really, really dislike mushrooms, but I really like steak and ale pie.
I marinated 1lb beef in the worcestershire sauce, thyme, garlic, and parsley (1/2 tsp dried instead of 1 1/2 tsp fresh) for 6ish hours before I cooked it, and took the meat out about an hour before I cooked it.
I tossed the bite sized cubed potatoes in a little olive oil, salt and pepper, and another 2 tablespoons of garlic. Instead of mushrooms, I cut up 3 carrots into bite sized pieces and tossed with a teaspoon of sugar. I baked the potatoes and carrots at 475 for 10-15 mins on aluminum foil over a baking sheet.
I sauteed the beef and onions in a tablespoon of butter until the beef was browned and the onions were soft - adding salt and pepper to taste. Added a bottle of Guiness (11.5 oz I think), 3 beef bouillons, and sauteed for a bit. Spooned out the meat and onions and put the beef mixture and the potatoes/carrots in a big mixing bowl and set them aside.
Reduced the Guiness, and mixed a spoonful of it with the flour then added that back to the sauce - came out thick.
I poured the liquid into the big mixing bowl, stirred a little, then spooned the reduction into the pie pan, too.
I only used a top pie crust that I had made from scratch - when I made it the first time I found two crusts were just too much (and I love crust!).
Baked at 375 for 50 mins, and... delicious. Thanks for a yummy recipe! My boyfriend from the UK loves it.
