Chris, FOOD, Uncategorized CHRIS’ HOMEMADE GUINNESS & STEAK PIES 23 November 2010

I got home from work and stepped in the front door, and Chris greeted me with a proud grin. The whole place smelled awesome because he was making….. Guinness and Steak Pies for dinner!!

Needless to say, I was completely blown away 🙂

He’d made up the Guinness and steak stew 2-3 hours prior so it was all really tender and full of flavour, so all that needed to be done was to cut out discs of puff pastry to make the pies, and dollop in the stew. And voila! Man, THEY WERE GOOD. Not being biased or anything. Puff pastry is one of my favourite foods in the world, and the beef was just so so tender. It was all kinds of fantastic.

I savored every bite because after a whole day at work, it’s utterly indescribable how nice it is to step through the door and have dinner lovingly cooked. It was like 1/3 part yummy food, 2/3 part LOVE 🙂

Most impressively, he did every single thing himself, and without a recipe! Remember when we were at Cookyn with Mervyn a few weeks ago in Singapore? He basically based it on that and amended it to the ingredients he had at hand. Very clever 😛

Thank you for the wonderful home-cooked meal hon!! It was almost as tasty as you are 🙂

Our pies, packed into Chinese bowls cos we didn’t have proper pie pans, lol

Warm, delicious, and filled with love. Much like my husband 🙂

    I just made a huge portion of stewed beef in chu hou sauce, I let the beef cooked for more than 2 hours and the beef was so tender! I just had two huge portions with steamed white rice!! 🙂
