Beef and potato pies

Cooking Soups Beef and potato pies

Classic cafe-style meat pies are best when theyre homemade and topped with a generous squirt of sauce.

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Brush eight 125ml (1/2-cup) capacity pie tins with oil. Use a 12cm round pastry cutter to cut 4 discs from each pastry sheet. Line the prepared tins with pastry. Place in the fridge for 15 minutes to rest.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a medium frying pan over medium heat. Cook the onion, stirring occasionally, for 3 minutes or until soft. Add the mince and cook, stirring with a wooden spoon to break up any lumps, for 4 minutes or until the mince changes colour. Stir in soup, gravy mix, water and Worcestershire sauce. Cook for 5 minutes or until it thickens slightly. Set aside to cool slightly.
  3. Place potato in a large saucepan. Cover with cold water. Bring to the boil over medium-high heat. Cook for 20 minutes or until tender. Drain. Return to pan. Add the milk and butter. Mash until smooth.
  4. Divide the mince mixture among the pastry cases. Top with the mash. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until browned.
