This is a great steak pie. You can add swede or other root vegetable to this too if you prefer. Enjoy with beer.
great taste, but "gravy" takes more than the allowed prep tine to thicken to correct consistency (now made more than three times) - 25 Aug 2011
The sauce was quite tasty, but too thin. The vegetables would need to be cut up quite small to cook in this manner - mine were bite-sized but did not get soft enough in the recommended time. - 24 Jan 2012
This pie was very tasty. I love to cook so I had to change a few things since some prior reviewers found it bland. I spiced my beef with salt and pepper before browing it in the lard. Also I brown the veggies a little in the left over lard to give them more flavor. As a final addition I deglazed the pan I used to brown the beef and vegetables with the ale and water mixture and spiced it with a little montreal steak seasoning to give the sauce some extra punch. - 13 Mar 2003 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
