About this recipe: Black Sheep Ale reminds me of walking the Yorkshire 3 Peaks last year. They serve 'Black Sheep Pie' along the route and I thought… I can do that. Well maybe anyway. You can do it with any other ale too I suppose, and I used to do something similar with Guinness, but found that it’s got a slightly more bitter aftertaste to it than the Black Sheep.
You can make the steak filling ahead of time and keep it in the fridge or freezer until you are ready to make the pie.
This is a delectable, easy and rich steak pie. The whole family loved it. The ale really takes it to the next level, and the pastry is so easy to make. Highly recommended!!! - 27 Sep 2011
Hi crisgal, don't believe I didn't put that on - d'oh! Put the oven on about 180 and it will take around 30 mins or until the pastry has browned. - 01 Nov 2009
it sounds lovely but how long do i cook it for? Also, what temperature should the oven be on? Thank you, cris - 26 Oct 2009
