I have shared with you all how my family goes all out to celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day. This year will be no different! I have already begun making my family's favorite Irish Soda Bread and
What goes great with Soda Bread, besides another family favorite, Guinness Beef Stew but a great Beef, Mushroom Guinness Pie.
That's right, today I am sharing an old favorite of mine. A true Irish classic savory beef Guinness pie!
What type of beef is best to make Beef Mushroom Guinness Pie?
Use either chuck or bottom round beef to get tender cooked meat. Buy the roast whole and cut into 2-inch cubes, much more cost-effective.
Tips to have an awesome tasting Guinness Beef Pie:
- Cut the carrots into 1-inch chunks so they do not get too soft once cooked.
- I prefer a button or baby Bella mushroom in this recipe.
- Puff Pastry is a great topping for these Guinness Pie and it is so easy to use a store-bought puff pastry.
BEEF MUSHROOM GUINNESS PIE FAQ'S
- Yup, some little-known facts! Did you know that Beef Guinness Pies are served all over Ireland!
- You won't find too many corned beef sandwiches on a menu in Ireland! However, they are delicious!
- Many recipes include bacon. I choose to leave it out as I find the recipe is awesome with mushrooms for more veggie flavor.
- Steak Pies, as they were originally called in England use ale. Ireland uses Guinness Stout, thus we have Beef Guinness Pies.

Instant Pot Instructions
- Set your Instant Pot to Saute and leave at the Normal function. Once ready, the indicator light will change to HOT!
- Add one Tablespoon of olive oil to the heated Instant Pot. Add the flour dredged beef to brown. A few pieces at a time. Don't overcrowd the Instant Pot. As the beef pieces brown, remove and set aside until all beef is cooked. You may need to add another 1-2 more Tablespoons of olive oil for browning the remaining beef.
- Add the remaining Tablespoon of olive oil to the Instant Pot and add the onions and garlic. Saute for about 2-3 minutes.
- Deglaze the pot by carefully adding into the pot remaining Guinness Stout. Use a wooden spoon to loosen all the brown bits at the bottom of the pot. Add the mushrooms, celery, carrots, beef broth and bouquet garni. (instructions to make are below).
- Place top on the Instant Pot, turn the valve to seal. Press the Meat/Stew to 30 minutes. Do a quick release by turning the valve to vent. Once release complete, remove the top.

Preparing the Individual Guinness Mushroom Beef Pies or One Large Pie
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees. If using individual personal crocks, measure the pastry puff to fit slightly wider than the crock. Cut the circles out and set aside. Split the beef mixture between the crocks. Top with the puff pastry. Cut 2-3 slits to release air. Brush the pastry with the egg wash. Place crocks on a large cookie sheet with lip and cook for about 15 minutes. Pastry should be golden. Serve immediatelyIf using a 10 inch pie pan. Put the beef mixture into the pie pan. Combine the puff pastry sheets into one sheet according to the box instructions. Usually a bit of water in the finger and press the sheets together works. Lay the sheet on top of the pie. Make a few slits in the pastry to release stem. Brush with the egg wash. Place on a cookie sheet with a lip and bake on middle rack for about 15-20 minutes. Check at 15 minutes. Pastry should be golden. Serve immediately.
How to make a Bouquet Garni
- Lay a piece of butchers twine about 12 inches long on a table. Lay the parsley, thyme, bay leaf and rosemary onto the twine. Wrap the twine around the herbs and tie them up.
- When cooking the meat, I use beef round whole. I cut into 2-inch cubes as it is way more affordable than buying pre-cut pieces.
- Feel free to use other cuts of beef such as bottom round and chuck, if that is what your family prefers.
- Guinness Stout foams. Pour the stout for the recipe slowly into a 2-quart measuring cup. Add liquid slowly, ½ cups. Let it foam and then add more. Until you are at 2 cups for the recipe.
- The broth will be somewhat liquidy when adding to the pie pan or individual pies. The liquid thickens up as it cooks.
all nutritional value is estimated. This can fluctuate due to portion size and ingredients.
