French Fries, I've been trying to link you to the steak and and ale stew recipe I use but my server is down and won't connect. If you google "Jamie Oliver steak and guinness pie" it will pop up.
I was very apprehensive about making a stew with beer, I'll be honest. I was only ever taught to use wine, or broth or tomato. I honestly thought it would be disgusting but I was prodded by hubby who saw the episode of the steak and guinness pie and MADE me make it. Once I tasted it of course I was a complete convert and have even gone on to make chocolate brownies with Guinness! Yes, it's that good!
I've used the recipe to make the steak and ale pie as Jamie makes it:
And I have also used the recipe as a filling for my own hand rolled dough.
And of course I used it for my poor man's wellie!
And I've used it as a plain old stew recipe to serve with mash or rice or noodles, add a few potatoes and your golden. Please do try it! Nothing makes you feel more english than a good brown gravy.
