Steak Pie

Steak Pie


"This recipe was created by trying to copy a steak pie made at the 'Butt and Ben' Scottish Bakery in Pickering, Ontario. My husband says it's better! You could also add 2 calf kidneys (well washed and de-veined and cut into bite sized pieces) to make Steak and Kidney Pie!"

  1. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add beef stew meat, and cook until browned on the outside. Add the onion; cook and stir until tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in the mushroom gravy mix and 1 cup of water. Season with Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper. Turn heat to low, and simmer for 20 to 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Transfer the beef mixture to a casserole dish. Roll out the puff pastry to cover the top of the casserole dish. Press edges onto the rim of the dish to seal. Whisk together the egg and 1 tablespoon of water in a small cup using a fork. Brush over the top of the pastry.
  3. Bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven, until the pastry is puffed and golden brown.

As a Scot still living in Scotland I'd like to add my thoughts. Like the other reviewer says ditch the mushroom gravy, replace it with 1/2 a cup of beef stock. Also add 8 sausages links (I use pork) cut in half and added to the beef mixture about 10 mins before end of simmering time. You can make a gravy to serve with if required. Other than that it is perfect. Well done.


This was OK but for a true beef style pie more ingredients are necessary. Vegetables such as carotts, turnip, parsnips, potatoes or any veg that does not overpower the flavour can be used. Also missing are herbs such as thyme, marjoram,sage, savoury, herbs de provence or bay leaf,added to personal taste. Also red wine stirred into the beef and onions while simmering. Now THAT is what a beef pie is all about.


As my friend who runs an inn in edinburgh would say...easy peasy.. I'd loos the mushroom gravy mix and instead fry the onions and then add the beef after rolling the bits in flour and salt and peppering. If you want the mushroom flavour......add some mushrooms? I'd add other veggies too, but that's personal preference.
