The ingredients needed for this recipes are 800g of braising beef – cut into 1 inch cubes, 1 chopped large onion, 2 tbsp of all-purpose flour, olive oil, 400g of sliced button mushroom, 300ml of beef stock, 250ml of Guinness, 2 tsp of tomato paste, 2 tbsp of balsamic vinegar, 1 tbsp of oyster sauce, 375g of block ready-made butter puffy pastry and 1 beaten egg.
Start off by placing the beef and flour in a bowl, season it with salt and pepper, mix well. Heat up the pan and pan frying the beef with a dash of olive oil, until brown on all side. Remove it from the heat and set aside.
Heat up the pot with olive oil, add in the onion and cook it until its golden brown. Subsequently, add in the mushroom and cook for 5 minutes and add in beef, beef stock, Guinness, tomato paste, balsamic vinegar and oyster sauce in it. Bring it to a boil, reduce to low heat and simmer it for an hour or till the beef is tender.
*Optional: You can be creative, for us, we love to put a layer of mashed potato as the base.
Here come the final step, layer the mashed potato in an ovenproof bowl, followed by the Guinness beef stew fill it till almost full. Leave it to cool down for at least 20 minutes, allowing the beef to absorb the sauce. While waiting, prepared the puff pastry. Roll the puff pastry on the board to 5mm thickness. Apply a coat of egg yolk on the rim of the bowl. Slowly, layer the puff pastry onto the bowl and pinch the pastry to it. Apply an egg wash for a browned and shiny crust. Bake it for 20mins on 200°C. When done, you are ready to serve.
