Preparing The Steak

  1. Dice the beefsteak, finely chop the onion or onions put them into a saucepan. chop each orf the sausages into three or four pieces and add them to the pan, sprinke some salt and pepper over the ingredients.
  2. Add a beef stock cube to one and a half pints of boiling water and stir until the stock cube has dissolved. pour the stock into the pan with the ingredients and put the lid on cook on a low temperature for around 90 minutes.
  3. once the ingredients are cooked, you need to thicken up the juices in the pan, I use a shop bought gravy powder for easiness add until you have a thick gravy.
  4. Leave the ingredients to cool in the pan whilst you roll out the pastry.
  5. The best method to roll your pastry to the correct size for your oven dish is to roll it out and keep placing the oven dish on to it until the pastry is the same size. (remember to sprinkle flour onto your worktop before rolling out your pastry.
  6. Empty the pan into the oven dish, I couldn't find a suitably sized dish so I used the tray that came with the cooker.
  7. Carefully place the pastry over the ingredients and cover the top of the oven dish, fold back the edge of the pastry slightly, to prevent the pastry sticking to the dish after cooking. Remember also to make a small hole in the centre of the pie to let the air escape during cooking.

Steak Pie

Steak pie is a versatile meal and you can serve it with almost anything but for the traditional new years day meal it is usually served with Boiled mashed potatoes, roast potatoes, turnip and peas.

If you wish to make it an English recipe then all you have to add is some beef kidneys to your pot to make it a steak and kidney pie.

I prefer to make my own steak pies rather than buy ready made ones from the shops because not only do they taste much better but the portion sizes are better, the steak is a better quality and half the time it is the luck of the draw if you find any steak in the shop bought ones.

The shop bought pies often exclude the beef sausages in the recipe too.

      I'm adding bacon to this after it comes out of the oven, delectable crispy bacon. Great recipe that's a must for any hungry person.
