Beef and Guinness Pie

This is a hearty Irish variation on steak and kidney pie.

Beef and Guinness Pie
Serves 6 8

3 tbsp. tomato paste
3-1/2 cups beef stock
4 lbs. beef chuck, cut into 1-in. cubes
1-1/2 lbs. white mushrooms, cleaned & quartered
1 large yellow onion, peeled & sliced
6 cloves garlic, peeled & chopped
2 tbsp. fresh thyme leaves, chopped
2 cups Guinness stout
1-1/2 cups flour
salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 egg
1 lb. frozen puff pastry, thawed

Preheat the oven to 325F.

Put tomato paste into a large bowl, add stock, and stir until paste dissolves. Add beef, mushrooms, onions, garlic, thyme, and stout and stir well. Sprinkle flour over beef mixture, season to taste with salt and pepper, and stir well. Transfer to a deep 10-1/2x12-1/2-in. baking dish set on a large baking sheet. Cover dish with foil.

Bake, stirring occasionally, until meat is very tender, 3 1/2 4 hours.

Beat egg and 1 tsp. water together in a small bowl and set aside. Roll puff pastry out on a lightly floured surface to a 1/4-in. thickness, 2-inches wider than baking dish. Remove baking dish from oven and uncover. Drape pastry over dish and brush with egg wash.

Return baking dish to oven and bake until pastry is puffed and deep golden brown, about 40 minutes

This sounds really good Mish. I might add some frozen peas to it when I make it. Some other vegetables might be good too. Thanks!
