Beef Stew Pot Pie with Homemade Puff Pastry Topping #piday




Happy Pi(e) Day!

So, I was about to say that Pi Day was my favorite nerdy holiday, but then I remembered Star Wars Day (May 4th) AND I just recently found out that my birthday is on Mario Day! (March 10 = MAR10) Woot!  I’m totally making myself a Mario Cake next year!

Anyway, I had to revise to say that Pi Day is my favorite nerdy math holiday! (there’s also Mole Day on October 23nd)

And while I would love to make pie on Pi day every year, I almost never do, since Pi Day shows up right on the heels of my birthday AND Hub’s birthday (his is just a few days before mine), so there’s usually still an abundance of desserts happening in my house.



So I typically make a savory iteration of pie instead.  I’ll often make Shepard’s Pie or Chicken Pot Pie or Mini Pot Pies!

This year, I decided to really think outside the box and make mini beef stew pot pies with puff pastry topping (remember way back in August when I shared that Homemade Puff Pastry for Julia Child’s Birthday?!) 

Umm..Yum!  Plus it’s a Guinness beef stew, so it also ties in some St. Patrick’s Day fun as well!

Guinness Beef Stew Pot Pies
Adapted from Home is Where the Boat Is              

2 lb stew meat
2 tbsp butter
1 onion, diced
4 stalks celery, diced
8 oz mushrooms, diced
1 large tomato, diced
3 garlic cloves, minced
Salt & pepper
Dash of turmeric
1 ½ tsp smoked paprika
1 large handful fresh basil, chopped
1 small handful fresh thyme, stems removed
1 (12 oz) bottle Guinness
1 quart beef broth
1 tbsp worchestershire sauce
4 carrots, diced
1 zucchini, diced
1 cup peas


Place the butter in a large stock pot over medium-high heat.  Add the beef, working in batches, if necessary, and brown on all sides.  Set beef aside.

Deglaze the pan with a splash of Guinness and add onions, celery, and mushrooms.  Cook until the vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in the tomato, herbs, and spices, remaining Guinness, broth, and worchestershire.  Simmer for 45 minutes.  Stir in the carrots, zucchini, and peas.  Simmer for 15 minutes.

Cut out puff pastry rounds ½-inch larger than 1-cup crocks.

Divide the stew between the crocks.  Cover each crock with a puff pastry round, pressing the edges around the crocks to seal.

Heat the oven to 425 degrees F.  Place the individual pot pies on the foil lined baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes.  Reduce heat to 350 and bake for an additional 30-40 minutes.

Allow the pot pies to rest for 15 minutes before serving.
