A rich & hearty pie packed full of flavour.  Very easy to make with store cupboard ingredients suitable for quickly rustling up for surprise guests!  Delicious!!
Serves 6
Prep time:  20 minutes
Cooking time: 50-60 minutes
Ingredients
15g butter
1 tbsp vegetable oil
1 large onion, finely chopped
2 celery sticks, trimmed & finely diced
2 medium carrots, peeled & finely diced
300g potatoes, peeled & finely diced
2 tbsp tomato ketchup
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
2 tsp marmite
1 x 340g can of corned beef
freshly ground black pepper
1 x ready prepared short-crust pastry
1 x ready prepared puff pastry
1 free-range egg
Method
1.    For the filling, melt the butter with the oil in a large non-stick frying pan. Add the onion, celery, carrots and potatoes. Cook on a low heat for about 15 minutes until the vegetables are softened, stirring regularly. The carrots should have a little bite.
2.    Add the ketchup, marmite, Worcestershire sauce and stir into the vegetables for a few seconds before adding the corned beef. Break the beef into chunky pieces with a wooden spoon and mix with the vegetables.
3.    Season with pepper and remove from the heat. Leave to cool for about 20 minutes.
4.    Preheat the oven to 190°C/170°C Fan/Gas mark 5.
5.    Roll out the short crust pastry onto a well-floured work surface and use it to line a 23cm pie dish. Leave any excess pastry overhanging the edge. Brush the pastry edge lightly with the egg.
6.    Empty the filling into the pastry base and spread it out evenly. Flour the surface once more and roll out the puff pastry. Lift the rolled pastry over the rolling pin and place gently over the filling. Press the edges firmly together then trim neatly. Seal the edge with a fork.
7.    Brush the top of the pastry with the remaining beaten egg, cut a cross in the centre of the pie and place onto a baking tray. Bake for about 35-40 minutes or until the pastry is golden-brown and the filling is piping hot.

Walnut Crusted Chicken Breast – It’s all About the Nut Glue

I almost never order a nut-crusted entrée in a restaurant, since they usually use a sugary glaze to hold them on, and/or feature a too sweet nut, like pecan, or macadamia. That’s not an issue here; since we’re going with buttery, subtly bitter walnuts, held on with a very savory […]

5-Minute Fisherman’s Stew – Give or Take

Of course this Fisherman’s Stew takes more than five minutes to make, and I’m actually referring to the approximate cooking time once the seafood hits the pan, but as they say, it’s only false advertising if someone else does it. Besides, one taste and I’m sure you’ll forgive any temporal […]

Pear Clafoutis – Almost as Good as it Looks

It sounds odd to say that a recipe’s biggest problem is that it looks too good, but that’s sort of the case with this pear clafoutis. Through no fault of its own, this crust-less, custard fruit tart looks a lot sweeter, and richer than it actually is. So, please be […]

Bloody Mary Burrata – An Experiment in Liquefying Salads

I don’t think there’s actually a difference between a liquid salad, and a cold vegetable soup, but if there is, I’d like this Bloody Mary Burrata recipe to be considered the former. Especially since I already posted a gazpacho this summer. But regardless of what you call this strange hybrid, […]

Baked Philly Cheesesteak Sliders – Go Giants!

The Philly Cheesesteak is a simple sandwich to make, as long as you’re making them in a restaurant. To make a proper one, you need a professional meat slicer, and a very hot flattop grill, which aren’t things most people have at home.  That’s why I loved this baked slider […]
