Step 1:

  • Sift the flour in a mixing bowl and add the salt.
  • Step 2:

  • Put in the cubes of butter.
  • Step 3:

  • Rub it all together using the tips of your fingers until it looks and feels like breadcrumbs.
  • Step 4:

  • Stir in the water until the dough binds together (using a knife helps and you may find that you do not need all of the water).
  • Step 5:

  • Cut your ball of dough in half, and put one half aside.
  • Step 6:

  • Roll out the dough to make a large circular shape and put on to the bottom of your pie dish, so that it covers the edges too.
  • Step 7:

  • Spoon the tinned steak on top of this and spread evenly.
  • Step 8:

  • Roll out the other half of the dough to make the lid, and put on top. Pinch the edges together to seal.
  • Step 9:

  • Prick the lid several times with a fork.
  • Step 10:

  • Place in the oven at about 180 degrees (fan oven) for 20-25 minutes.
  • Step 11:

  • ENJOY! (Note: once you’ve bind the dough together, you can break a little piece off and leave to one side to roll out and cut in to a decoration to put on top at the end. E.g. a leaf / love heart)
