Beef Stout Pie

Beef Stout Pie

I’m a big believer in keeping to the seasons.  I have my favorite foods that I like to prepare as well as my favorite activities associated with each season.  During Autumn, I always look forward to making Beef Stout Pie.  I stumbled across the recipe years ago in one of my Williams Sonoma catalogs.  It’s part of the Gastro-Pub collection, since it’s a favorite in pubs across the world.  Since it was a moody Autumn day where I’d be indoors, I thought it would be the perfect time to make it.

The recipe calls for making it in one large pot, but instead, I like to make it in individual serving bowls, like you see in the Staub petite pumpkin cocottes.  I’ve got a set of the white ones, but they also come in orange and matte black.  If you do decide to make this, just know that it takes a good portion of the day–this isn’t something you can make last minute.  The vegetables and meat have to be prepared early on because they simmer on a stove for three hours.  Likewise, the crust is homemade with blue cheese, so it will need time as well.  If you’ve got some time, it’s definitely worth it!  I was really craving it, and it hit the spot!

It’s really true what they say about comfort food during the cold months.  I really like the quote by Edith Sitwell that says, “Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire:  it is the time for home.”

Until next time,

Thanks for stopping by!

Have a great day!
