Who Loves McDonald’s Apple Pies? How About Beef Stew Pie?
Yes, leave it to the wacky Chefs at McDonald’s Japan to come up with this – taking their much loved Apple Pie and releasing one filled with Beef Stew!
As SoraNews24.com reports:
“According to the chain, the stew filling has been made by slow-cooking beef with vegetables like carrots and potatoes for flavour, and using Fond de Veau, a French veal stock, to add richness and depth. The crispy pie casing adds a satisfying textural accent, creating a snack that’ll fill that gap in your stomach, while also “warming your cold body with a hot and melty stew”.
It also comes in a unique wrapper…

The Beef Stew Pie is also a limited-time menu item, available from 8 December until the beginning of January and priced at 180 yen (US$1.59.
