Keto Steak & Guinness Meat Pie

A British Pub inspired meat pie with hearty steak, mushroom and Guinness Stout filling.  A Chaffle crust keeps the carbs low but the meat lovers won’t mind at all! You can make the rich meat filling either in the Instant Pot or in the oven. Or make this rich Keto stew on it’s own and use the Chaffles for dunking.  Your choice!

Keto Steak & Guinness Meat Pie

I recently picked up a couple meat pies for my son from a local British Specialty shop.  They were $9 each for a single serving meat pie.  Nine dollars. 

Right then and there I decided to make a Keto meat pie!

I knew I would make it with Chaffles because they can stand up well to a hearty stew and I find that too much almond flour just makes me feel unwell.

Ingredients Needed for Keto Meat Pie

  • Chaffle ingredients (eggs and grated cheese) or make your favorite chaffles for this.  Check out this post for making basic chaffles.
  • Stewing beef
  • butter
  • celery and mushrooms
  • 1/2 onion (optional, I can’t eat onions anymore so I leave them out)
  • Guinness stout
  • cheddar cheese
  • dried garlic, onion and rosemary

Meal Prep Tips

  • Chaffles can be made in advance and kept in the fridge until you need them.  This recipe uses 8 Chaffles
  • The Beef and Guinness filling can be made in advance
  • Meal prep by making double the Steak and Guinness filling and serve leftovers as a hearty stew for another meal.
  • If you don’t have a Mini Dash Chaffle maker, make waffles and line a casserole dish instead for a larger meat pie. Or just eat the filling like a stew and serve over the waffles.
Yield: 4

  9. When the meat comes out, put back on stove without the cover and simmer for 10 minutes until the liquid is reduced (or as long as needed).
  10. Allow to cool slightly, then add in 2 ounces of the grated cheese.
