These not-so-little guys are incredibly versatile and promise to fill up tummies as a compliment to a cosy dinner party, or your pending summer picnics galore! Quick, simply, and indulgent to taste, here’s my favourite pie recipe just for you.
Serves 3 (makes 3 individual pies)
*BEFORE WE START, MARINADE YOUR BEEF IN YOUR CHOICE OF ALE FOR AN HOUR. LEAVE OVERNIGHT FOR AN EVEN DEEPER FLAVOUR TO THE MEAT*
TIP: IF YOUR MIX IS LOOKING A LITTLE TOO WATERY, SIEVE IN SOME PLAIN FLOUR TO THICKEN
*GREASE YOUR PIE TINS WITH A LITTLE BUTTER TO AVOID STICKING*
*PRE HEAT YOUR OVEN AT THIS POINT TO 220C/200C fan/gas 7*
Once your pies are looking beautiful and tempting, remove from the oven and allow to rest for up to 10 minutes.
Serve with lashings of thick, beef gravy accompanied by creamy mash potato or thick cut chips, and your favourite veg for a truly comforting supper.
Refrigerate a batch in cling film to take with you in a picnic hamper the following day! Serve alongside your favourite cheeses (I recommend a crumbly stilton), mustard, more horseradish, and pickled onions for a summer day picnic feast.
Crack open your favourite summer ale or cider too, if you wish, to wash it all down!
