Method

  1. Fry the onion, carrots and celery in the oil in a large frying pan until softened. Add the mince, increase heat and cook for 5 mins or until well browned. Stir in the tomato purée, Worcestershire sauce and stock. Simmer for 5 mins until the sauce has thickened slightly. Cool for 10 mins.
  2. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Spoon the mixture into 4 individual pie dishes or one large dish. Brush the dish rims with egg, then lay the pastry on top and trim. Seal edges with a fork and brush the pastry with more egg. Poke a little hole in the top and cook for 25-30 mins or until the pastry is golden and risen.
  3. Meanwhile, cook the peas in boiling water, then drain and mash with the mint sauce. Serve the pies with the hot peas on the side.

Made this today, I put all the ingredients minus the oil into my slow cooker and cooked the meat filling over night, I then let it cool and then put it into a pie dish and added the pastry. I kept it refrigerated until we were ready to cook it off. it was really delicious my husband said its the best pie he had ever had. All the kids loved it and of course myself too.

This is a winner with my husband and kids - I miss out the celery and I put peas in the with the mince filling. An easy and tasty meal...

EXCELLENT: the best of both worlds, easy and elegant. That's the one thing about pastry puff, it dresses up anything. (couldn't resist throwing in a bit of thyme though.)
