Chef Anthony’s Recipes – Beef & Guiness Pie

Serves Four

Beef and Guinness Pie brings together two of Ireland’s most famous products, beef and Guinness in a hale and hearty pie. The long-slow cooking of the filling creates not just perfectly tender beef, it also allows the flavor of the Guinness to permeate the meat and the vegetables and produce a thick, luscious sauce.
