This is one of those recipes that you don’t want to do every day as it is time consuming, but oh my it is worth it!
The recipe is simple to follow and the ingredients inexpensive. I somehow managed to make more than stated in the recipe ( used slightly less meat and slightly more pearl barley and managed to make 3 pies, they are all smaller than in the recipe but will certainly serve my husband and I for at least three different dinners and can be frozen too.)
The suet pastry is soft and crumbly and the rich filling includes stout, beef, pearl barley, cheese and mustard. Ours is served with steamed baby carrots and green beans. Delicious!
Thanks Jamie for a fantastic recipe – can be found here if you fancy giving it a go.
