Meat Pie Recipe
Steak & Mushroom Pie

This meat pie recipe of steak and mushroom is an all time favorite at our household. So as to reduce the amount of fat consumed, I make this recipe as a pot pie with only a top layer of pastry as, while we all love pastry, it is nonetheless, too rich in butter and this is an attempt to reduce our intake of calories.

Meat Pie Recipe

You'll require:

• 2 lb/1 kg good quality round or topside steak, diced chunkily

• 2 large onions, diced

• 5 - 6 large mushrooms, about 4 oz or 250gm, sliced

• 1 tbs soy sauce

• 1 tbs sugar

• 1 bay leaf if you have one in the pantry

• 6 tsp beef gravy powder

• 1 1/2 cups water

• salt and pepper to taste

• 2 weetbix crushed

• 1 tsp cornflour, mixed with a little water (if necessary)

Here's how to make the yummy pie:

• Preheat oven to 350F/180C

• In a hot saucepan, brown onions and meat

• Add gravy powder and cook for a couple of minutes

• Add seasoning and water. Mix to combine.

• Turn the heat down to simmer and leave to cook for about an hour

• Add in the cereal to thicken, cook for a further 5 minutes

• If the sauce is insufficiently thick, then add the cornflour

• In the meantime, cook the mushrooms separately. When cooked add to the cooked meat sauce. Don't cook the mushrooms with the meat as it should not be cooked for an hour

• Spoon the meat filling into a casserole dish

• Top with pastry. Decorate pastry with excess bits of pastry and then brush with a little milk to help brown it. Alternatively use egg wash

• Bake at 400F/200C for 15 - 20 minutes till golden brown

Serve with mashed potato and just cooked greens or a crunchy side salad.


If you wish, grease the inside of the casserole dish before proceeding with the recipe. I generally omit this step to reduce our consumption of fat.
