Recipe Group Selection: 09, March 2013 ~ I made this for my guys, knowing I would not be trying it. I used 1 pound of round steak and 1 pound of venison. I also had to sub green peppers for the mushrooms as they don’t care for them and omitted the raisins for the same reason. I have never used lard before; therefore I didn’t have any so I used olive oil instead. So, I made the Steak and Irish Stout Pie using the above ingredients, plus the rest listed and the guys LOVED it! They took one bite and said, “Give this one 5-stars”. Because of the length of time it takes to prepare this recipe, I did all the browning and baking of the meats on one night, cooled and refrigerated the dish over night. The next night, I heated the filling and proceeded with the recipe. sassyoldlady, another AR member sent out a reminder about piercing the bottom crust when pre-baking it. That was so helpful, as I would not have done that because the instructions didn’t tell me to do so. I pre-baked the crust, add the filling, minus some of the broth and added the top crust. Mine did take about 20-25 minutes to completely bake. I let the pie rest 10-15 minutes before cutting to let it set up. As I said before, my guys loved it. When they reheated the leftovers, they added a dollop of sour cream and enjoyed it even better that way. Thanks Michael St. Laurent for sharing your recipe – it is a keeper for my family!
