Steak and Guinness Pie

19 March 2009

Now, I'm not much of a cook, but I do enjoy cooking, especially making up things from scratch which inevitably end up a little bit, uh, crispy. But sometimes I surprise myself.

Here is a Steak and Guinness Pie I made, using a recipe I found somewhere (perhaps the local free tube paper) and influenced from St Patrick's Day which had been a few days earlier. We had tried to find somewhere to get a free Guinness with one of the vouchers that were being handed out everywhere, but it was only certain pubs, and they were absolutely packed. Not a bad idea though - vouchers for free beer! :-) St Patrick's Day really is a godsend of free publicity for Guinness!


A slightly more attractive angle

Notice that I have cunningly written my name on the top, to allow for ease of identification if stolen. Who ate all the pies they cried?

It tasted okay, but I've had better (and worse!)

I am one of the few Kiwis in New Zealand Town to own a bonafide oven from Overseas Land. If you would like to replicate your Steak & Guinness pie here you are more than welcome. Oh and ka pai (pie).

We will consider your kind offer of an oven to remake said pie. In the meantime, here is another type of pie altogether:
