With Fathers Day coming up this weekend in Australia, I asked the Skinnymixers Community what they would like to see for a special Fathers Day Thermomix recipe… So many people said “something with beer” and quite a few people suggested a Beef & Guinness Pie recipe.
I went with doing a pie filling, because that gives people the flexibility of putting the filling into pie pastry, topping with puff pastry or using my rustic mash like I did and bake in the oven for 20 on 200. This was adored by my Dad and Michael, and I hope the rest of the awesome Dads out there love it!
Put onion and garlic into mixer bowl, chop for 3 sec/speed 9/MC on. Scrape bowl down.
Add oil and cook for 5 min/100°C or 212°F/speed 1/MC off.
Add remaining ingredients and cook for 40 min/steaming temp/slowest speed/MC off. Put the simmering basket over the hole to avoid making a mess of your kitchen.
You may need a little more time depending on your thermal cooker - because beef tends to have different water content levels, watch this recipe closely towards the end to avoid the meat disintegrating or drying out. Note: if your pie filling is too watery, remove your meat now and cook the liquid down for a further 5-10 min/steaming temp/speed 1/MC off or until reduced. Note: If cooking into a pie, let the dish sit for 10-20 mins after baking in the oven before serving for the mixture to thicken and settle. You can make this gluten free by using a mixture of GF vegemite and liquid beef stock to replace the Guinness. Bellini Users Use your blunt blade for this recipe. At step 1 add on 1-3 seconds if onion requires further chopping. At step 3 use speed 1 and ST temp if using an Intelli and speed 1 and 120°C or 250°F if using a Supercook. If using step 4 use ST temp with an Intelli and 120°C or 250°F if using a Supercook.
