We live in Edinburgh, a city with many great pubs, but my husband maintains that the best steak and ale pie in the city can be found in our own kitchen! Tender chunks of meat and vegetables, savoury gravy, flaky crust...hungry yet? The steak is cooked in the slow cooker so it's really tender but the pie itself is finished in the oven.
Have just prepared this for tomorrow nights dinner. Have put in slow cooker and my hubby will switch it off tomorrow morning. Very easy to make - hope it takes as good as it smells. I will post results tomorrow. - 06 Feb 2012
made this Fathers day and it was a hit. I added some mushrooms which soaked up some of the excess the gravy - 17 Jun 2012
Made this in my slow cooker overnight for a family gathering. It was full of flavor but just too much liquid. I ladled off about 3/4 pint before putting my pastry on. The plates were almost licked clean. I will most definitely make it again. - 14 Mar 2017
