Place the meat in a casserole dish. Peel and chop the onions and fry until golden before adding them to the meat. Add the raisins (if wanted) and brown sugar. Pour in the Guinness. Cover tightly and simmer over a low heat or in a very moderate oven (325-350F) for 2½ hours.
Stir occasionally and add a little more Guinness or water if the rich brown gravy get too thick. Meanwhile, line a deep pie dish with half the pie crust and bake it blind.
