Makes: 2 individual pies

  • 1/2 medium sized potato, peeled and diced
  • vegetable oil
  • 1 red onion, sliced
  • 200g beef mince
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 2 tablespoons Bisto® gravy granules
  • 2 tablespoons frozen petit pois
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 sheets chilled puff pastry

Prep:30min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:50min 

  1. Pre heat the oven to 220 C / Gas 7, or as per puff pastry instructions.
  2. Place the diced potato in a microwave safe bowl, cover with water and cook in the microwave for 8 minutes or until the potatoes are softened.
  3. Heat a frying pan with a little oil and add the onion. Cook for 10 minutes or until softened. Add the garlic and mince. Stir frequently until the mince is cooked and browned. Add the drained potatoes and cook with the mince for a further 5 to 10 minutes.
  4. Add the cayenne, seasoning and 1 level tablespoon of paprika. Mix well.
  5. Make up the gravy granules with 60ml water, and stir well. It should be quite thick. Add pepper to taste.
  6. Add the peas to the mince along with the gravy. Mix well and set aside.
  7. Melt the butter in a small dish in the microwave. Stir in the 1/4 teaspoon paprika and set aside.
  8. Roll out the pastry just enough so that it will cover each pie dish top, with an overlap. Set aside.
  9. Divide the pie filling between the two dishes. Place the pastry lid on top. Cut two small slits into the top to allow the steam to escape and prevent the pastry from going soggy.
  10. If desired, crimp around the edges of the pastry. Brush the top with the paprika butter. You can also add a decorative pastry embellishment with any remaining pastry.
  11. Repeat with remaining pie. Place the pie pots onto a baking tray.
  12. Cook in the oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until the pastry is cooked, risen and brown.
