Welcome to Cooking With the Retriever, a series which will never be seen on the Food Channel or PBS. UPN, maybe. Today's recipe is also known as Beef and Guinness Pie. This serves six to eight people. Any questions should be directed to the actual cook, LC (she's at work, and told me to go ahead and post this). Ingredients: - 3 T tomato paste - 3 1/2 c beef stock - 4 lbs beef chuck cut into 1" cubes - 1 1/2 lbs white mushrooms, cleaned and quartered - 1 large yellow onion, peeled and sliced - 6 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped - 2 tsp thyme - 2 c Guinness Stout* - 1 1/2 c flour - salt - pepper - 1 egg - 1 lb frozen puff pastry, thawed * - this is 2 cups of Guinness, not 2 cans (unless you're in the mood to challenge your guests) Directions: - Preheat the oven to 325. Put the tomato paste into a large bowl, add stock, and stir until the paste dissolves. Add the chuck, mushrooms, onions, garlic, thyme, and stout. Stir well. - Sprinkle flour over the beef mixture and season to taste with salt and pepper. Stir well. Transfer to a deep (10 1/2" x 12 1/2") baking dish and set on a large baking sheet. Cover the dish with foil. Bake, stirring occasionally, until meat is very tender (about 3 1/2 to 4 hours). - Beat egg and 1 tsp water together in a small bowl and set aside. Roll the puff pastry out on a lightly floured surface to a 1/4" thickness, 2" wider than the baking dish. Remove baking dish from the oven and uncover. Drape the pastry over the dish and brush with the egg wash. Return the baking dish to the oven and bake until pasttry is puffed deep golden-brown (about 40 minutes). Please note: You are not required to drink Guinness with this. It won't hurt, but it's not mandatory. Next week: Baked Ice. :P ENJOY! :wiggle:

Since you're bound to have a 6 pack when you make the pie, you need to find something else to do with the other 5 cans....(as though "drink it" isn't the most obvious choice :P) note: I haven't tried this, I've hung on to it for years and never found the occasion so if you make it let me know how it is Guinness Cake INGREDIENTS 16 T. butter (1/2 lb.) 1 cup dark brown sugar 1 cup sugar 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder 1 teaspoon ginger 1 teaspoon cardamom 1 teaspoon cinnamon 1/2 teaspoon salt 2 2/3 cups flour 3/4 cup cocoa 1 cup Guinness stout 6 eggs 8 ounces cream cheese, softened 1/2 cup butter, softened 1 1/2 pounds confectioner's sugar 1 teaspoon vanilla extract In a bowl, cream together the butter and both sugars. In another bowl, mix together the baking powder, spices, salt, flour and cocoa. At the very last moment, add the Guinness to the eggs. (Don't let it sit too long, or the alcohol will begin to cook the eggs) Add half of the dry ingredients to the butter and sugar mixture and blend, then add half of the wet ingredients. Repeat this process until all the ingredients are combined. Pre-heat the oven to 350 , and line the bottom of at least two 9-inch diameter cake pans with wax paper. (Use as many layers as you like for your own cake.) Divide the batter between pans, and bake until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean, about 25 minutes. Cool cakes in pans for about 10 minutes, then turn them out onto a wire rack and peel off the wax paper. Let the layers cool completely before frosting. In a bowl, beat together the cream cheese and butter until mixed, then beat in the sugar. Finally, add the vanilla. Place one cake layer, bottom side up, on a platter. Spread with frosting, then top with another layer, bottom side down. Repeat with each layer, then spread the remaining frosting smoothly over the top and sides of the cake.

I think you could put cream cheese frosting on just about anything and it would taste good but on a cake made from guinness its got to be fabulous, right?
