    • 1 pastry for the top of a 23cm pie
    • 60g margarine
    • 1/2 cup chopped onion
    • 1 potato, diced
    • 1/3 cup (40g) plain flour
    • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
    • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
    • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

    Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Extra time:10min cooling  ›  Ready in:1hour 

    1. Preheat the oven to 220 degrees C. On a lightly floured surface, roll the pie pastry out into a 30cm circle. Set aside.
    2. Melt margarine in a saucepan over medium heat. Add potato and onion and cook until the onion is tender, but not brown. Sprinkle the flour over the mixture and stir to blend. Season with oregano, black pepper and garlic powder. Pour in the beef stock and add the peas, carrot and beef. Bring to a boil. Transfer the mixture to a 2L casserole dish and place the pastry over the top. Cut slits for steam and flute the edges.
    3. Place on a baking tray and bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until crust is golden. Let stand 10 minutes before serving to thicken.

    Garlic Powder

    Fresh garlic may be substituted for the garlic powder.

    AWESOME! this recipe is easy to follow and tastes great. if you're looking for an old fashioned country style dish that sticks to your ribs this is it. i did add a teaspoon of salt with the other spices. filled a ten inch pie pan perfectly and looks so pretty when it's done!  -  08 Sep 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    my family absolutely loved this. i made it with cooked ground beef, because that's all i had on hand. i increased the sauce (my family like lots of sauce) and used potatoes, onions, carrots - peas don't go over well here. when i first took it out of the oven, i found that the potatoes were a bit undercooked, but when my dad ate after it sat on the stove for a few minutes, he said it was all thoroughly cooked. next time, i'm going to increase the amount of potatoes and vegetable, adding some more varieties. overall this recipe was so easy to make and everyone really loved it.  -  03 Feb 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
