    kyrandia's Note:

    I love pies, and I especially love meat pies with mushrooms in them ! , this one is simple to make and very tasty. Great on a cold winter night, by itself or served with chips, mashed potatoes or mushy peas.... hope you like it

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Cook beef and onion in a large sauceppan until the meat is browned and the onion softened.
    2. 2
      Add the whole tin of mushrooms juice and all, stir well.
    3. 3
      Mix gravy powder and the flour into a smooth paste with the water.
    4. 4
      Add to meat and stir until its thickened (use your judgement here, if you like a little more gravy add a small bit of water).
    5. 5
      Grease a 20cm pie plate and cover base and sides with puff pastry.
    6. 6
      Spoon in meat filling and press down firmly.
    7. 7
      Cover in pastry, trim edge and press together with a fork to make a decorative edge.
    8. 8
      Pierce with a fork a couple of times or I like to cut a v in the top flipping it over to make a little triangular hole.
    9. 9
      Lightly brush with milk and decorate with excess pastry if desired.
    10. 10
      Cook in a preheated oven at 200 degrees for 25 minutes or until golden brown.
    11. 11
      I have also used fresh mushrooms in this, add them after you brown the meat, you may need to add a little more water if you use fresh mushies, again, use your judgement.

      Yum! The gravy and mushrooms gave the filling a wonderful consistency and taste. The only change I made was I didn't have a regular round pie dish so used two smaller square ones and wrapped the pastry over the top.

      We loved this - I substituted a ready made savoury flan base for the puff pastry, and used a sheet of puff pastry on the top. We (well, Chris mainly :-) ) ate the whole pie between the two of us for dinner last night! Thanks for posting kyrandia.
