BEEF PIE

I can never resist a good Beef Pot Pie. I've been cooking this for years and it's great when you are just too lazy to cook.

1 medium onion
5 tbsp butter
50gm all purpose flour
half tsp salt
300mls beef broth
300mls cubed beef (stewing), marinate with salt and pepper.
100gm celery (sliced thick)
150gm green peas and carrots (cubed and cooked)
dried parseley
puff pastry
evaporated filled milk

On a pan, saute the beef with some oil till it is sealed. Leave it aside for a while. Saute onions and celery in pan on butter until they are tender. Stir in flour until smooth. Add the broth, let it cook and stir to prevent it from sticking to the pan. Add the beef cubes that had been saute briefly. Sprinkle some parsley and let it cook till the beef is soft and tender. When it is soft, add the cooked vegetable and simmer a while. Taste and adjust seasonings if necessary. Pour into a small casserole dish. Roll out your puff pastry over the casserolle and cut some slits. Brush with milk and bake for about less than 30 minutes on medium heat.

If you let yr beef mixture cool slightly, you can portion it up into smaller aluminium dish and place the puff pastry on top. Freeze it and bake when needed.

2 cheers:
