    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:45min  ›  Ready in:55min 

    1. Prepare your vegetables by dicing them evenly and setting them in a bowl of cold water. Preheat your oven to 200 degrees Celsius
    2. Defrost the beef stakes for 10-20 minutes in a microwave and dice them into 1cm2 pieces.
    3. Mix the pastry if needed. Separate the dough into 2 even chunks.
    4. Roll one chunk of pastry out until it is a little larger than your dish, then place it at the bottom of an oiled dish, ensuring that the inner sides of the dish are also covered by the pastry.
    5. Gather all your vegetables and place them in the dish.
    6. Place the diced steak over the vegetables and mix the ingredients until there is an even amount of ingredients in every area.
    7. Sprinkle the stock cube and gravy granules over the mix and pour 200ml of boiling water over the mix.
    8. Add the larger (optional)
    9. Roll out the other chunk of pastry evenly and strech it out over the mix. Cut off any extra pastry,
    10. Roll out the extra pastry into a square and cut out 2cm wide lines. Place the lines in a crossed pattern over the top of the pie. Brush milk over the pastry for a golden crust when cooked.
    11. Any more extra pastry can be rolled into balls. partly seperate the small balls to make the shape of a bird. Stretch a beak and a tail with your fingers and place the birds on the top of the pie.
    12. Place the pie in the oven on 200 degrees Celsius for 35-50 minutes, until the crust is golden brown and the gravy inside is bubbling.
    13. Your pie is ready to serve!


    Tip: Pierce the pastry with a fork to stop it from filling with steam and exploding while cooking.
