My Favourite Meat Pie

This is one of the recipes that I used to love it when my mum used to make it. My cooking never tastes quite as good as here but then again I think most people would say that about their Mum’s cooking (or dad’s if you had a dad that enjoyed cooking). Hopefully my boys will think that of my food one day.

Now this recipe was a little …. umm…. dated so I have…. modernized it…. just a little and added veggies to it.

Serves: 4
Cooking time: 45 minutes
Oven: 230°C then reduce to 180°C (450°F reduce to 350°F)

  • What you will need:
    • 500 g (1lb) minced beef
    • 2 sheets of frozen puff pastry
    • 1 medium onion, chopped
    • 1 tablespoon (20 g) butter
    • 1/2 cup beef stock
    • 1 tablespoon tomato sauce
    • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
    • 1 cup frozen veggies (I use the peas, corn and carrot mix)
    • salt and pepper
    • milk
  • What to do:
    • Place 1 sheet of pastry over the pie dish to allow to thaw (add flour or butter to the dish to reduce sticking)
    • In a pan brown the onion in butter
    • the meat and cook until browned
    • Add stock, sauces seasonings; simmer 5 minutes.
    • Once the base has settled into the dish, fill with meat mixture
    • Cover with 2nd pastry sheet and prick top
    • Brush with milk
    • Bake in a hot oven (230°C) for 15 minutes
    • Reduce heat to moderate (180°C) and cook a further 20 minutes
    • until golden brown.
