This meat pie or shepherd pie recipe is easy to make if you use a ready roll pastry.
Meat Pie (or Shepherd Pie)
2 tablespoons oil
1 small onion, chopped
1 large potato, chopped
3 tablespoons flour
salt and pepper to taste
1 cup frozen peas
1 can beef broth
1 pound beef round steak, cubed (or 1 pound lamb, cubed)
2 sheets ready rolled pastry
1 egg yolk mixed with 2 tablespoons milk for glazing
Pour oil in a saucepan and add onions and potato. Cook for about 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Add flour and a little salt and pepper. Then add the peas and stir. Pour in the beef broth and stir until it is nice and thick and bubbly. Add the chopped beef or lamb (make sure you chop it into small bite-sized cubes) and stir.
Grease a deep 9 inch pie plate and line the bottom with one ready rolled pastry. Make sure there's a little bit of pastry overlapping. Pour the filling into the pie plate. Brush the edges of the pastry with the milk and egg yolk glaze. Gently place the other ready rolled pastry on top. Press the edges of the pastries together to seal. Trim off any extra pastry and press around the pie with a fork. Cut 4 steam holes on the top and brush the top of the pastry with the rest of the glaze.
Bake in a 425F degree (220C degree) oven for 30 minutes. Serves 4. Delicious!
