Beef and Stout pies are a favourite traditional recipe from the UK. Typically it is made with good cuts of beef, stout, mushrooms and all sorts of good stuff. I’ve modified the recipe to simplify it and make it accessible no matter your budget and of course kids love eating with their hands so even the pickiest eaters will enjoy this one!
I chose to use Guinness because it has such a distinctive flavour that I think works really well, plus its a fab nod towards St. Patrick’s Day and making it a little bit more of a specifically Irish recipe. These would be great to serve up at any St. Patrick’s Day themed dinner parties! Not only are they delicious but they are pretty cute and easy to eat with just a napkin making them perfect party food!
