A Guinness pie
I know, I know. It’s not pie weather. In fact, here in Sacramento, the temps have been in the mid-100’s, which is positively skorchio. However, the stomach wants what the stomach wants and lately, I’ve been craving the comfort of a good British pie.
Holland’s has recently launched a steak and Guinness pie, which is available at Tesco (for the Brits in the room). Prime steak, dark rich gravy infused with Guinness beer, and shortcrust pastry.
And for the Americans in the room, I stumbled upon steak and ale pies at Trader Joe’s. I haven’t tried it yet but I did buy a box and will do a little review on a future blog post!
What do you think? Are you a fan of steak and ale pie?

How funny – I too stumbled on the Trade Joe’s steak and ale pies last night and they’re now in my freezer. A new item, I guess? And I agree, it’s not really pie weather, but for these I think we can make an exception.
