  • 100 g Butter Cold, unsalted, cubed
  • 1 Egg Yolk
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 2-3 tbsp Water Cold

For the Filling:

  • 300 g Beef Diced
  • 2 Potatoes Peeled, diced

  • 2 cloves Garlic Minced
  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 tbsp Tomato Puree
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 tsp Thyme Dried
  • Salt To taste
  • Black Pepper
  • 150 ml Beef Stock


  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour and salt.
  • Add the diced butter to the flour mixture and rub in until it resembles breadcrumbs.
  • In a separate bowl, beat the egg yolk and water together.
  • Add the egg mixture to the flour mixture and stir until it forms a dough.
  • Knead the dough on a floured surface until smooth.
  • Wrap the pastry in cling film and chill for at least 30 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 180°C (160°C fan)/350°F/gas mark 4.
  • Heat the olive oil in a frying pan and sauté the onions and garlic for 2-3 minutes until softened.
  • Add the diced beef to the pan and fry until browned all over.
  • Add the diced potatoes, tomato puree, Worcestershire sauce, dried thyme, salt and pepper, and stir well to combine.
  • Pour in the beef stock, bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 10-15 minutes until the liquid has reduced and the mixture is thickened.
  • Roll out the pastry on a floured surface to a thickness of about 3mm.
  • Cut out rounds of pastry using a large cookie cutter or pastry cutter.
  • Place a spoonful of filling in the centre of each round of pastry.
  • Brush the edges of the pastry with a little water and fold over to enclose the filling.
  • Use a fork to press the edges of the pastry together and create a crimped edge.
  • Place the pies on a baking tray lined with baking paper.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the pastry is golden brown and crisp.
