Ingredients
 

  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 750 g chuck steak, diced into 4cm, leave any fat on
  • 3 tbsp plain flour
  • 1 tbsp tomato puree, (heaped)
  • 2 small onions, very finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp creamed horseradish
  • 20 g stock cubes, (2 x 10g beef) crumbled
  • 3 tbsp Worcester sauce
  • 2 tbsp fresh thyme, finely chopped
  • 600 ml boiling water, roughly
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 500 g butter puff pastry
  • 1 lightly beaten egg

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 160C, Gas 3.
  • Pat the meat dry with kitchen paper.
  • Heat 1 tbsp of the oil in a deep casserole dish or ovenproof pan, then add the meat and cook until nicely browned all over.
  • Sprinkle on the flour, and stir well let the flour catch slightly. This helps to give the stew a nice colour and flavour.
  • Then add the tomato puree, onions, horseradish, stock cubes, Worcester sauce and fresh thyme, mix well.
  • Add enough boiling water to just cover the stew.
  • Season well with salt and pepper and bring to a gentle simmer.
  • Cover with a tightfitting lid, and place in the preheated oven cook for 1½ hours, nice and gently.
  • Once cooked, remove from the oven and cool.
  • Roll out the pastry and line a 24cm 5cm deep pie dish, allow 2cm extra.
  • Cut off any excess pastry, then egg the pie dish top. Use the excess to line the top of the dish.
  • Add the cooled beef mixture, and leave nice and proud.
  • Lightly egg the pastry rim, and lay the top neatly over, making sure not to stretch the pastry. Seal the edges well, trim again and crimp.
  • Brush well with beaten egg and make 2 small incisions in the centre.
  • Bake at 180 C gas 4 for 35-40 minutes until well browned and hot.
  • Serve with braised swede & carrots and mash.
