Layered Savory Winter Lamb and Guinness Pie

Tiffany Bannworth


I love making this deep dish pie. You cannot go wrong with all these delicious and good for you root vegetables.

I also love to make my pie sauces with mashed vegetables.

This dish is very savory. I would serve with either purple cabbage or roasted asparagus.

How to Make Layered Savory Winter Lamb and Guinness Pie


  • 1To start crust, mix all the crust ingredients, save the shortening. After thoroughly mixed, rub in the shortening. Knead for about 5 minutes. Form into a ball, wrap with plastic wrap, and place in refrigerator.
  • 2To start bottom layer, in a skillet on low place butter, lamb, garlic, purple onion, and winter savory herb. Cover and cook for 30-45, stirring every 10 minutes. The slower the lamb cooks, the more tender it will be.
  • 3Then in a pot, take all of your diced vegetables and boil in broth or water with bouillon cubes until soft.
  • 4In a mixing bowl, now combine the the skillet (lamb), the pot (vegetables), and the cream and mashed peas/cauliflower. Stir well, set aside.
  • 5To start top layer, in a saucepan, add all top layer ingredients and whisk at low medium until well blended. Set aside.
  • 6To put together, I like to use a Panettone baking dish. Spray with Baker's Joy. Then roll out the dough to coat the dish. Reserve some dough if you would like to same some to make shapes. I made leaves and chicken shapes.
  • 7Then pour in bottom layer, followed by top layer. If you decided to add decorative dough pieces, do so now. I recommend painting them with milk and an optional sprinkle of salt.
  • 8Place in oven at 325F until your dough is cooked and the top layer receives a golden brown appearance.
