Steak And Stilton Pies | SAVEUR


This recipe isn’t as easy as some I’ve written about but it sounds delish and it might be worth the time, and with an added plus, it uses BEER!

 

INGREDIENTS

¼ cup olive oil

1¼ lb. beef chuck, cut into 1″ cubes

3 cloves garlic, finely chopped

2 large yellow onions, sliced

2 ribs celery, thickly sliced

2 small carrots, thickly sliced

2 tbsp. minced rosemary

1 (12-oz.) bottle stout beer

¼ cup flour

2 cups beef stock

2 tsp. mustard powder

1 bay leaf

1 tbsp. unsalted butter

10 oz. mushrooms, quartered

6 oz. English Stilton, crumbled

1 (10-oz.) package frozen peas

1 (14-oz.) package puff pastry

1 egg, lightly beaten

INSTRUCTIONS

1. Heat oil in an 8-qt. saucepan over medium-high heat. Season beef with salt and pepper, and cook until browned, 10–12 minutes; transfer to a bowl. Add garlic, onions, celery, carrots, and rosemary to pan; cook until soft, 10–12 minutes. Add beer; cook until almost dry, 18–20 minutes. Add flour; cook, stirring, until smooth. Return beef to pan along with stock, mustard, and bay leaf; bring to a simmer over medium-low heat. Cook, covered partially, until beef is barely tender, about 1½ hours; set aside. Heat butter in a 10″ skillet over high heat. Add mushrooms; cook, stirring, until browned all over, about 8 minutes; stir into beef mixture along with cheese and peas.

2. Heat oven to 375°. Divide beef mixture among four 6″ pie tins (12 oz. each). Roll pastry into a 14″ square; cut out four 6″ circles. Brush tin edges with egg; place 1 circle over each; press to seal. Cut slits into pastry; brush with egg. Bake until browned, about 40 minutes.
