‘Steak’ and Stout Pie

1/2 cup flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup water
1 lb. vegan steak strips, chopped (try Morningstar Farms Meal Starters Steak Strips)
6 Tbsp. vegan margarine
1 large onion, chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
1 pkg. veggie bacon, chopped (try Lightlife brand)
1 Tbsp. vegetable oil
2 pastry crusts
1 tsp. brown sugar
1 Tbsp. raisins (optional)
Fresh parsley, chopped, to taste
1 large carrot, chopped
1 bell pepper, seeded and chopped
1 1/4 cups dark beer
1/4 cup vegetable stock
Salt and pepper, to taste

• In a large bowl, combine the flour with the salt and pepper. Set aside.
• In a separate bowl, combine the soy sauce and the water. Add the “steak” strips and toss to coat.
• In a large skillet over medium heat, melt the margarine and cook the onion until golden brown. Quickly sauté the garlic.
• While the onion is cooking, brown the “bacon” in the oil in a large skillet. Drain on paper towels and crumble.
• Lightly grease a deep-dish pie pan and line with 1 of the pastry crusts. Bake at 350°F for 10 minutes, until lightly browned.
• Add the “steak” and “bacon” to the onion-garlic mixture. Add the brown sugar, raisins, parsley, carrot, bell pepper, beer, and vegetable stock. Season with salt and pepper. Stir and cook for 5 minutes, until thick. If too thick, add more beer or vegetable stock. Taste and adjust the seasonings.
• Spoon into the pie crust. Cover with the remaining crust. Bake for 25 minutes, or until the pastry is browned.

    I’ve made this every st. patty’s day for the past few years, and vegs and meat-eaters alike LOVE it! None of the stores where I live sell vegan steak strips, but a pound of chopped-up boca burgers works just as well! (in fact I think they make it heartier!) Instead of one covered pie, I always end up with two open-faced pies because there’s so much filling. But two pies are better than one!

    In response to Rob’s question–I think the flour mixture should be used to coat the beef, and then the beef should be browned in oil a few pieces at a time–at least that’s what I’m going to do with it! =)

    Sounds good! I can’t figure out what to do with the flour/salt/pepper mixture after I mix it and set it aside. It is still sitting aside. Please advise.
