Steak and potato pie

The quantity on this recipe was for four people, however, all five of us ate the pie with a tablespoon of carrots each and there was still a good serving to spare… this is very filling and if we had perhaps used more veg on the side and not been so greedy hungry… we would have fed ourselves and had another complete dinner for the fridge/ freezer.


8 oz onions, sliced thinly

half an ounce of fat or dripping

3 tablespoons flour

quarter pint of water

1 tin stewed steak

1 tin peas (8oz size, optional)

1 teaspoon salt

quarter teaspoon pepper

2lb potatoes, cooked and mashed


Fry the onion gently in the fat or dripping until tender; work in the flour. Add the water gradually and bring to the boil, stirring all the time; boil for 5 minutes.

Add the steak, peas and seasoning and mix well. Place the mixture in a pie dish, cover with the mashed potato and brown under the grill or in a hot oven.

>>> If you want to use raw steak (from your supermarket or butcher) instead of tinned, fry the onions and steak off together until the steak is tender. Then add the flour, 1 table spoon of gravy granules and stir until coated. (this gravy is because tinned steak comes in a gravy already, raw steak obviously doesnt)

Add the water, peas and seasoning.

Reduce heat and cook for about 20 minutes on a low heat. After meat is cooked place in oven proof dish, top with the mashed potato and cook in a hot oven (gas mark 7) until golden.
