3. Season with a little kosher salt and fresh ground pepper. Keep stirring every few minutes.
4. After 10 minutes, add a sprig of rosemary, garlic, carrots and celery. Stir well.
5. Add 20 oz (2 packages) of sliced brown mushrooms. Stir in flour and mix everything well.
6. Then add meat and Guinness beer. Stir all the ingredients well.
7. Add just enough beef stock to cover meat (about 4 cups).
8. Bring to boil over high heat, then reduce to low, cover with a lid and cook for 1 hour.
9. Uncover the lid, raise the temperature form low to medium and let the stew simmer vigorously for another 1/2 hour.
10. If the stew needs to be thickened, make a slurry with cornstarch and a little water, stir it well. Add into the stew and cook until thickened.
11. Take a casserole dish and place it inside the foil lined baking sheet. Pour the stew into the casserole dish and put shredded Irish Cheddar cheese on top.
12. Unfold the thawed puff pastry and lay on top. Fold ends in. Brush the pastry with beaten egg yolk, then sprinkle with some Kosher salt.
13. Bake at 400 F for 20 minutes.
