We eat this steak pie every Hogmanay night and New Year's Day. The meat is so tender it just falls apart and the gravy is beautifully rich, the trick is in the slow cooking. We always need to plan to make enough for seconds when we have guests round for dinner! If you don't have the time to cook it for so long and leave overnight you can easily make the recipe in one go in an hour and a half
Serve with green beans or soaked marrowfat peas and mashed potatoes.
My mam always made a huge steak pie on new years eve and it was eaten straight after 12o/c that was when I was a wee laddy in the middle 50s. As Im now nearing sixty and mam has long gone and seeing your recipe I might just make myself a big steak pie with a ruff puff topping, thanks for reminding me. - 21 Jan 2013
