For me this pie is heaven in a dish. Succulent slow cooked beef, rich guinness and puff pastry. It's really easy to cook, throw in the fact it uses the cheapest cut of beef, and you have a sure fire winner! This is two part recipe. In part one we make the filling. In part two we make and bake the pie.
1 litre pie dish
1 large pan (preferably hob to oven proof)
Plate slightly bigger than pie dish (if you have one)
