Beef & Mushroom Pie

This is ideal for entertaining as most of it can be made one day ahead



Part 1

  1. Roll out pastry and put in pie plate. Trim. Roll out top crust and loosely roll around the rolling pin. Refrigerate til filling is made.

Part 2

  1. Cut the beef into cubes and dredge pieces with flour.
  2. Heat 4 Tbsp oil in a large cast iron frying pan. Brown the meat well. Set meat aside.
  3. Add onion and garlic to pan and saute until slightly caramelized. Deglaze pan with sherry. Return the meat to the pan. Add tomato paste, thyme and just enough water to cover and simmer gently for about an hour. Remove from pan and set aside.
  4. Heat 1 Tbsp oil in the frying pan. Add mushrooms and saute til they are reduced. Add to the meat mixture. Deglaze the pan with a little more sherry or brandy. Add that to meat mixture as well.
  5. Chop potatoes in quarters and boil in salted water until just tender. Drain and carefully stir the potatoes into the meat mixture. Season with salt and pepper.
  6. Put sludge into the pie shell. Put the top pastry piece on. Crimp edges, and slash the top. At this point, it can be refrigerated until the next day for baking.

  1. Bake the pie a preheated 425F oven for 15 minutes, reduce heat to 350F and bake 45-55 minutes more until the pie is golden.
