Ox Cheek, Wild Craft Brewery Wild Ride Dry Hopped Pale Ale and Bone Marrow Pie

Ox cheek, Wild Craft Brewery Wild Ride Dry Hopped Pale Ale and Bone Marrow Pie

Is there anything better than a good Beef and Ale pie? Pieces of melt in the mouth beef in a fantastic unctuous sauce, encased in buttery pastry!!!

I’ve seen this fantastic dish made with absolutely no love or care so many times! Meat thrown into a saucepan, covered with water, boiled to within an inch of its life!, thickened with gravy granules and then the final indignity of being wedged between the most tasteless ill made pastry one can imagine!!! By “chefs” too!!

This recipe I’m going to share with you guys is as far from that method as you can possibly get! We’re going to use the ox/beef cheek for starters, marinated in fantastic Wild Craft Brewery Wild Ride Dry Hopped Pale Ale, slowly cooked until wonderfully tender…..

Now I’m using Wild Ride because, firstly, I love the name, Wild Ride! just brilliant, and secondly, Wild Ride has been produced in celebration of Norwich Door to Doors 25th Anniversary, their mission is to enable social inclusion and enhance quality of life for people with severe mobility problems on low incomes in Norwich and districts, a percentage of profits from every bottle and pint of Wild Ride is donated! Great cause x

I could go on and on!!

But let’s just get started shall we??

The recipe does take time, but believe me it’s well worth the work

This recipe will make you a pie enough to feed 6 people easily
