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.
My mother is from York England I grew up on steak and kidney pie and this one is as good as hers! I changed it a bit I added 2 crushed cloves of garlic used Frenches mushroom gravy mix added 12 small mushrooms cut in half 1 tsp dried tyme 1 tsp dried basil 1 kidney and one fairly large outside round steak. This recipie turns out a good pie and very easy to make.
This recipe was a great way to use cheap marked down meat (I call it M.D.M.) I got the tenderized beef stew meat for like 3.oo for almost 2 lbs here in PHX... I sauteed it covered in EVOO w/ chopped garlic/onion (for about 30 mins to make sure it was tender). Made the basic brown gravy packet on the side. Added frozen corn/green beans that I microwaved a minute in butter - to the concoction. I made a bag of flavored instant mashed potatoes. Put the meat/veg/gravy into a casserole dish. Topped it w/ the potatoes then cheese then finally the ready to go pie crust sprayed w/ Pam. Baked it for about 20 mins. on 350... It was teriffic! My kids totally ate it up and I'm sure the leftovers will be great tomorrow. Thanks for the great idea!
JUST like I had in Scotland! I followed recipe completely (used boneless beef ribs instead of stew meat because it's better meat but essentially the same!) and added a dash of garlic. Made the house smell homey and cozy while cooking and warmed us right up. BUT I will double the recipe next time to feed 4. YUM! THANKS!
I'm only giving 3 stars because I had to make changes. I simmered the meat for 25 minutes longer than called for added garlic sliced white mushrooms and frozen peas. Good base recipe though. Why do people rate 5 stars if they make changes?
This is a good recipe, but I prefer a top AND bottom pie crust. I use the ready-made pie crusts that you unroll over your pie plate. They are very flaky and my family loves them. Also there is no mess to clean up!
Delicious. I also made a couple of changes. I did add some garlic and I used round steak rather than beef stew meat. I used drained canned mushroom pieces rather than the dry mushroom (due to the fact that is what I had in the house) Great idea. The family liked the Pie and told me I had to make it again.
