Sara Dylan will be talking you through this mindchef presentation, written by Elaine McFerran, on how to prepare an irish beef and stout pie for four people. If you are only cooking for two why not cook for four and freeze some for a later meal?
Just so you know what to expect here’s the sequence; first I’ll be explaining what ingredients you will need for this dish, followed by the equipment you’ll need to gather together before you begin. Then we’ll run through the stages of preparation and cooking.
Once you’ve gathered your ingredients and equipment together, it should take you about three and a half hours to make this pie, but much of this time won’t involve any effort on your part, the filling just needs to cook nice and slowly. To give yourself enough time and to know when you’ll need to start, work back about three and a half hours from the time you want to serve the meal.
If you don’t feel too confident in your cooking skills don’t stress! Make yourself a cup of tea or coffee and listen through the whole process before you begin. Don’t forget you can pause and rewind me as many times as you need. Cooking should be fun so don’t worry too much.
Assuming you have downloaded this audio to your mobile phone you can take me with you as you walk around the kitchen and when you shop for groceries.
