  • Guinness Shepherd’s Pie

Seasoned Ground Lamb
1 lb Ground Lamb

2 Medium Yellow Onions, small dice

1 Medium Carrot, small dice

5 Cloves Garlic, minced

2 tbsp Tomato Paste

1 cup Chicken Stock

1 tbsp Worcestershire Sauce

125 ml Guinness Original

2 tsp Fresh Thyme Leaves, chopped

1 tsp Fresh Rosemary, finely chopped

1/2 cup English Peas, fresh or frozen

1 tsp + extra Kosher Salt

1 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Whipped Potatoes
1 lb Yukon Gold Potato, peeled

120 ml Heavy Cream

113 g Butter

6 Cloves Garlic, minced

1 tsp + extra Kosher Salt

1 tablespoon Parsley, chopped to garnish

In a large pan, add oil and heat pan to medium. Add garlic and cook for 6 minutes. Add the onions and carrots and cook for 8 minutes. Add the tomato paste and cook for 10 minutes, the colour should deepen to a brick/rusty colour – stir occasionally.

Raise the heat to medium-high and add the lamb. Cook until all the lamb is browned – about 10 minutes.

Add the rest of the ingredients and simmer until 90% reduced – the liquid should be syrupy. Season with salt to taste and set aside for later.


Cut the potatoes into quarters, they should all be about the same size and boil in salted water until tender – about 10-15 minutes.

Meanwhile in a large sauce pot, sauté the garlic in the butter for 5 minutes over medium heat. Add the cream and turn heat to low until the potatoes are ready.

When the potatoes are cooked, drain the water, then spread the potatoes onto a baking sheet. Let sit for 5 minutes while the potatoes steam out. Once ready, rice the potatoes.

Using a wooden spoon, fold the riced potatoes into the cream mixture – be careful not to overwork the potatoes. Season to taste with salt.

Preheat oven to 200°C. In a baking dish, spread the ground lamb evenly on the bottom of the dish. Top with potatoes and spread evenly as well.

Bake for 20-30 minutes until the potatoes have browned on top. Garnish with parsley and serve immediately.

¼ tsp Baking soda

1⁄2 tsp Salt

70 g Granulated sugar

1 Egg

225 ml Buttermilk

60 g Chopped walnuts

225 g Irish Butter, room temperature

85 g Honey

1 tsp Cinnamon

1 tsp Kosher salt

Preheat oven to 200°C.

Combine cranberries and Guinness Extra Stout / Guinness Original. Microwave on high for 45 seconds and let it steep and cool, to allow cranberries to saturate with all that lovely beer flavour. Strain and set aside.

Mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar. In a separate bowl, whisk together egg, buttermilk and melted butter.

Combine the dry and wet ingredients until just mixed. Do not over mix, you just want all the dry ingredients hydrated. Gently fold in cranberries and walnuts.

Spray muffin tin with a liberal amount of non-stick cooking spray. Fill each section about ¾ of the way up. Top with a pinch of flakey sea salt and sugar.

Bake for about 18-25 minutes or until a toothpick or cake tester comes out clean.

Cool for 5 minutes and quickly remove each muffin from the tin and finish cooling on a wire rack.

Using a whisk, whip butter until everything is combined.

Season to taste. Use on everything!
