Steak Pie

 

Really enjoyed this, best thing I’ve made yet even if I do say so myself!!

 

Ingredients –

  • 2lbs diced stewing steak
  • 3 or 4 cups of chicken or beef stock
  • 1 cup of wine
  • 1 large onion
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1/4lb of carrots (though I forgot this)
  • 1lb ready made puff pastry
  • 1 cup of flour

Steps –

  1. Put the steak, flour and salt and pepper in a bowl and mix until the meat is completely covered.
  2. Put the meat in a pan with some vegetable oil and brown all over then remove
  3. Dice the onion and fry for 2 or 3 minutes in the same pan as you cooked the steaks.
  4. Add the wine, stock, carrots and steak to the pan then leave for at least a few hours, preferably overnight, to let all the flavours mix together.
  5. Roll out the pastry to about 2 inches bigger than the tray you will be cooking it in.
  6. Cut an inch all around the edge of the pastry and stick this to the edge of the tray.
  7. Brush on some water to moisten the pastry on the tray then spoon in the meat and juices
  8. Put the the rest of the pastry over the top and push down the edges to seal them.
  9. Make two holes in the pastry some where in the middle to allow the steam to escape
  10. Put in the over for about 30 minutes at 200 degrees Celsius
