Sensational Steak and Kidney Pie

This delicious pie is made with beef, kidney, onion, carrot and beef stock, and we are adding Worcestershire sauce for flavour. You can swap the carrot for an extra onion if you prefer. We are using a pastry topping on the meat mixture, but if you want a base and sides for the pie, use double the amount of pastry to make a base and sides, pressing those into the dish before adding the meat. This steak and kidney pie is delicious served with mashed potatoes and vegetables. You do not need to make extra gravy because this pie has built-in gravy. Cut into it and that rich gravy will slowly ooze out.

This pie is made with cheap cuts of beef, and kidneys tend to be cheap too. The long, slow cooking tenderises the beef and mellows out the amazing flavours in there. One of the most famous British dishes, steak and kidney pie can be made with ox, lamb or pig kidney, although we are using lamb kidney here. Some people add ale or stout to theirs, while the pastry may be hot water crust, puff pastry or shortcrust.

This is a hot and hearty meal, perfect for the autumn or winter evenings when there is a chill in the air and you are in the mood for comfort food. You can also find homemade steak and kidney pie on traditional pub menus, where it is often served with chips (fries!) or mashed potatoes and vegetables, often peas and carrots. You can also buy readymade ones from the supermarket, either tinned (canned) or boxed, which just need to be warmed up in the oven. Continue reading
