Lizzie’s Pie and Peas

We adore this dish – there’s nothing better than a fabulous homemade pie.  This recipe is for a basic Aussie Beef pie but we have also done these using chicken curry, goulash and chicken and mushroom.  The combinations are endless – just stick it in a pie and plonk it on a bed of pea mash and away you go…

Pies:

Ingredients:

1 tablespoon of olive oil

1 onion finely chopped

2 large carrots grated

1 large stick of celery finely chopped

6 rashers of bacon finely chopped

½ kilo high quality minced beef

Good glug of tomato sauce

2 tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce

Good pinch of nutmeg

1 cup of beef stock

Salt & pepper to taste

1 sheet of puff pastry per pie tin

1 beaten egg to use as an egg wash to stick the pastry together

Method:

Fry the vegetables and bacon together until softened

Add the beef mince and make sure you break up any lumps as you are browning it

Add in the tomato sauce (to taste) and the nutmeg

Mix thoroughly

Add the beef stock and simmer uncovered for about half an hour or until stock has reduced and the mixture is nice and thick

Season to taste with salt and pepper

To make the pies:

Spray individual deep pie tins with cooking spray

Cut pastry sheet in half and push into the tin

Patch up the sides with the overlapping bits by brushing with an egg wash to stick them together

Fill with beef mixture and cover with left over pastry using the egg wash around the rim

Pinch the edges together and poke two small slits in the centre of each pie to allow the steam to escape

Place in a preheated oven on 200c (fan forced) for around 30 minutes or until golden

Serve with pea mash

Pea Mash:

Boil peeled potatoes in plenty of salted water

Throw in a big handful of frozen peas a few minutes before the potatoes are completely cooked

When cook, drain in a colander and put back into the pot

Add a big knob of butter, salt & pepper to taste and a glug of milk

Mash roughly together until mixture is smooth but not a puree

Bon Appetit!
