    One of my favourite recipes, family love it, it works wonders on a winter's evening and is one of the best pie fillings I know  -  07 Feb 2013


    It was really difficult to find a recipe that would be as good as my Grans, and this was the only one that came close! Absolutely gorgeous, so unbelievably tasty and cheap too! Have made it three times now, scrumptious in a huge yorkshire pud or with fresh crusty bread and butter. Yum!  -  18 Dec 2014


    A super recipe. I used 5 oxo cubes and a couple of good dashes of Worcestershire sauce instead of the 7 oxo cubes, and no other salt...but apart from that minor change I made it AS IS. There are only two of us so I made the full recipe, we had two bowls with crusty French bread and butter and I used the remainder as a brilliant pie filling for two good size plate pies using shop bought short crust pastry.  -  08 May 2018
