We’ve turned this hearty pub favorite into bite-size appetizers!

Prep: 45 minutes, Cook: 1½ hours, Serves: 8

1. Heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add beef and cook, stirring frequently, until nicely browned. Stir in vegetables and cook for 5 minutes more. Add flour and cook for 1 minute, then stir in broth, ale, tomato paste, Worcestershire and mustard. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 45 minutes. Remove cover and cook for 15 minutes more or until mixture is coated with a small amount of sauce.

2. While beef is cooking, lightly knead cheese into pie dough. Divide into 2 pieces and roll each into a 12-inch circle. Cut into 4-inch circles*.

3. Preheat oven to 400°F. Place equal amounts of beef filling in the center of each dough circle. Bring up ends and pinch to seal. Press with the tines of a fork or flute decoratively. Bake for 20 minutes or until pastry is golden brown.

*An empty Raley’s nut can is the perfect size. Trace the edges with a small sharp knife.
