Well then DO make a duxelles for your wellington! If you feel lazy, cheat and use a food processor?

 

Mushrooms + Shallots + Butter = delicious.

Actually I braised the Wellington in Guinness and mushrooms and will be using that as a gravy! No fancy wine sauces tonight just good old mushroom ale gravy!!

But oh I can't wait to find a good recipe for cream of mushroom soup! I've made it before but it tasted ok but it was a bit too dirt like. If anyone has a god method please share!

OOh that sounds good. Never tried using Guiness in cooking before.

What? You've never made a steak and ale stew? It's terribly good, want a recipe?

Never. I use red wine for everything. :lol: Guiness is an exotic ingredient for me! I'd love a recipe, please. Always down to try some new flavors - and even here in SoCal, the chill days are just around the corner, so it's going to be the braising season within a few weeks.

Needn't limit yourself because the guiness is running scarce. Try any stout, ale, dry, cider, white wine, ginger wine, sherry, vermouth, tequila. Each has application in cooking, so long as you can drink it.

What nation has national mushroom day? Is it just normal mushrooms, or special mushrooms also?

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.
