Beef and Guinness Hand Pies

This recipe comes to us from Frugal Mom, Eh! Blogger Elizabeth says, "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!"

Beef and Guinness Hand Pies

Makes 16 Hand Pies


1 lb ground beef
1/2 cup onion, finely chopped
2 Medium Sized Potatoes, diced
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1/2 cup sweet peas
1 bottle Guinness Stout
2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
Salt & Pepper, to taste
2 packages of Deep Dish Pastry Shells (4 Shells total) OR your favourite pie pastry recipe doubled.


Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

Grease a baking pan with cooking spray and set aside.

In a skillet over medium-high heat, brown beef and onion then stir in the vegetables, thyme, Guinness, Worcestershire sauce and seasonings then bring to a boil.

Reduce heat and simmer for 7-8 minutes or until vegetables are tender.

Roll out pastry dough and cut out 16 – 5 inch rounds and 16 – 5.5 inch rounds.

Spoon filling onto 5 inch rounds, brushing milk around the edges and cover with the 5.5 inch rounds and press with a fork to seal.
