This is a nice easy pie recipe that I made up last night and was delicious! The kids loved it I served it with a simple salad and not one scrap was left on the plate.

Ingredients (serves 6 | makes 6 Pieces of pie)

  • 800grms Diced beef
  • 2 tsp Minced Garlic
  • 1 litre Beef Stock
  • 1 tin Thick purĂ©ed tomatoes with basil and garlic
  • 2 tbsp Tomato paste
  • 1 tsp Mixed herbs
  • 1 cup Diced bacon
  • 1 sheet Shortcrust pastry
  • 2 sheets Puff pastry
  • 1 egg Whisked lighlty
  • 3 tbsp Instant gravy powder
  • 1 dash Red wine


  1. Add the diced beef to the slow cooker. In a jug combine the beef stock, tinned tomatoes, tomato paste, 1 tsp of the garlic and the mixed herbs. Also add 3 tablespoons of instant gravy powder. Mix until all combined and pour over the beef and add the dash of red wine. Slow cook on low for 8hrs.
  2. After 8 hrs pre heat the oven to 180deg and get your pie dish ready. Add the shortcrust pastry to the bottom of the pie dish. Then sautee your bacon with the remaining teaspoon of garlic. Once that is cooked set aside. Add the beef to the pie dish on top of the pastry. Add the bacon and cover with the puff pastry. Any remaining pastry you can make shapes to add on top of the pastry already assembled on the pie. Brush with the egg and cook for 30 mins and enjoy!

Notes... You could add veggies to this if you wanted to or just serve them on the side depending on taste. Also you could change the meat to Lamb and add Rosemary for a different texture.
