Ingredients

  • 2 sheets frozen short crust pastry
  • 2 sheets frozen puff pastry
  • lbs/750g steak cubed in small pieces
  • oil for frying
  • 1 onion diced
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1 teaspoon fresh rosemary chopped
  • cups beef stock
  • ½ cup red wine
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon water for slurry
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 egg beaten

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).
  2. Heat oil in a saucepan and fry the onions and garlic for a few minutes until they are translucent. Add the cubed beef pieces and cook for about 5 minutes until browned.
  3. Add the tomato paste, rosemary, beef stock, red wine, Worcestershire sauce and simmer for an hour.

  4. When the meat is tender, make a slurry with the cornstarch and water and add to the meat. Cook for a few minutes to thicken. Salt and pepper to taste, allow to cool (in the fridge) before proceeding.

  5. Lay the short crust pastry on the countertop. Place the pie bases upside down on the pastry Use the pie bases as a guide to cut out the shape of the pie. Cut the pastry slightly larger than the pie base.

  6. Lay the puff pastry on the countertop. Using the same method, cut the puff pastry the same size as the pie base. This will be the top of your pie.

  7. Place the short crust pastry inside the greased pie dish. Brush the edges with the beaten egg. Fill the pie with the beef chunks. Cover with the puff pastry top. Using a fork, press the edges to seal. Trim excess dough. Brush puff pastry with egg wash.
  8. Bake for 30 minutes until golden brown. Serve with Ketchup.
