    1. Season the steak with salt and pepper. Coat in flour, shaking off excess. Reserve leftover flour.
    2. Heat the oil in a large frying pan over medium to high heat. Cook beef until nicely browned, then set aside. Add onion and mushrooms; cook, stirring until mushrooms are tender and liquid from them has evaporated. Stir in garlic and reserved flour. Cook for 2 minutes, stirring well.
    3. Slowly add the stock constantly mixing to ensure you don’t get lumps of cooked flour. Add wine, thyme and steak and simmer for 5 mins. Season with salt and pepper; remove from heat, cool to room temperature and refrigerate until well chilled.
    4. Preheat oven to 220 degrees C .
    5. Place one sheet of pastry in the bottom of a 23cm pie dish. Fill with beef and mushroom mixture before topping with second layer of pastry.
    6. Brush edges with egg wash and crimp to seal. Brush the top of the pie with egg wash. Cut a small hole in centre of pie to allow steam to escape.
    7. Bake for 20 mins. Reduce the heat to 180 degrees C and cook for a further 25 minutes.
    8. Allow the pie to cool for 10 mins before serving.

    Altered ingredient amounts. I made this pie, but I only used button mushrooms, & I used around 220mls of Guinness instead of red wine,then I made enough home made shortcrust pastry to toally enclose the pie. it was absolutly delicious.  -  21 Mar 2011  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    Fantastic and very easy to follow recipe. I used Fursty Ferret ale in my pie but it tasted lovely. Next time I'll just use a puff pastry topping though as I found the bottom and side of the shortcrust pie too soggy.  -  23 Jun 2013  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    I have never written a review before but after eating this pie I feel compelled to, it was exceptional! I thought the filling ingredients were excessive but it did all fit in to my store bought pastry pie shell. The only change I made was using ale instead of wine, however it's only 3 tbspns so Wine would not overpower the taste. Great pie.  -  04 Nov 2012  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
