To begin, take a large saucepan and fry your diced onion and chopped thyme for around 10 minutes until the onions have softened. Add garlic paste to the saucepan as well and then cook for another minute.
Place your butter in the saucepan and let it cook until fully melted. Once the butter has melted add in the plain flour and stir well for around one minute in the pan.
Now it is time to add the beef stock and the Guinness. Let the saucepan mixture simmer as you cook up the beef.
In order to cook your chopping steak pieces, take a separate frying pan and cook on medium-high heat until the meat has browned all over. John added you may need to do this in batches depending on how large your steak is.
Once the steak is cooked, add the pieces to your saucepan mixture and bring it all to a boil, then turn it down to a shimmer to cook for around three hours, making sure to check on it and stir it occasionally so it does not stick to the bottom of the pan.
After three hours, add in the Dijon mustard, parsley, salt and pepper and give it a good stir.
Spoon the mixture into your pie dish and set aside to cool down slightly. Preheat the oven to 200℃ and now it is time to make the pastry top.
Brush the edges of the pie dish with just a little water, and then place a few strips of pastry around the edges of the dish.
Lay the remaining pastry sheet across the top of the pie and make sure to press down around the edges to seal it up. Use a sharp knife to cut away any strips of excess pastry.
Now it is time to make the top of the pie look presentable. You can then crimp the edges of the pie by pressing down on the edges using your thumb and forefinger. Then, cut two slits on the top of the pie so that steam can escape, and then poke two sprigs of rosemary through the slits.
Brush your pastry with a beaten egg and place in the oven for around 25 to 30 minutes.
The pastry should look crispy, puffed up and golden once ready. Take it out of the oven and your hearty steak and Guinness pie is ready to serve.
