  4. Once the steak has started to brown, add the garlic and mix well
  5. Add the mixed herbs and allow to cook for about 10 minutes on a medium heat
  6. Add enough water to cover the ingredients, and bring the pan to the boil, reduce to a simmer and cook for 1 ½ hours adding more liquid if necessary
  7. Add the garden peas, then following the manufacturer’s instructions thicken the sauce with the gravy powder
  8. Taste the sauce, adjusting seasoning if necessary
  9. Prepare the shortcrust pastry as per the FFT recipe
  10. Portion the pie filling into ceramic dishes, then top with the rolled out pastry

Key Points
  • A sprinkle of dried herbs or cracked black pepper over the top of the pastry before it goes in the oven can improve the appearance of the pies.
