  • To start, take the frozen pastry out to defrost a few hours prior to making the pie or alternatively you can defrost it in the microwave.
  • Step 2:

  • Peel the potatoes, half them and add to a pan of salted water. Bring to a rolling boil. Boil the potatoes until they become soft enough to slide a sharp knife through.

  • Whilst boiling the potatoes, in a seperate pan, empty the can(s) of stewing steak and heat gently until the gravy becomes more fluid (you can add a touch of water to loosen the gravy).
  • Step 4:

  • Preheat an oven to 200 degrees.
  • Step 5:

  • When the potatoes are done, drain and empty them into an oven proof dish. Top with the stewing steak and gravy and then top with the pastry.
  • Step 6:

  • Brush the pastry with an egg yolk and place in the oven until the pastry is golden.
