This year, I have so dang much to be thankful for.
I had the most amazing summer traveling across the country and fulfilling a life long dream of visiting America’s National parks.
I gave birth to the most amazing baby (to me anyway 🙂 )
I moved to Spain, fulfilling another life long dream of living in Europe.
I quit a job that I hated.
I have a wonderful, supportive, ambitious husband who loves me dearly.
And I have awesome, amazing friends who ship me cans of French’s Fried Onions so I can make a very special Christmas dinner for my little family!
I’ll assume you already know how to make green bean casserole. If not, just pick up a can of French’s Fried Onions and read the recipe on the back! Here’s the steak & guiness pie I served with the onions. Delicious!
Steak & Guinness Pie
Toss 1 kg of beef stew chunks in flour, salt, and pepper and brown in the oil of your choice. Set aside. Add 2 chopped onions, 3 chopped carrots and brown. Add the beef back along with a can or bottle of Guinness. Add cider to cover. Simmer, cover, and cook until beef is tender, about 2 hours.
Remove beef, onions, and carrots from the broth with a slotted spoon and put in baking dish. Using a flour slurry, thicken the remaining broth into a rich gravy and pour over the meat. Top with the pastry topping of your choice and bake until done.
