ingredients

  • 1 medium onion
  • 700g lean cubed braising steak
  • 1 level tbsp cornflour
  • 2 bay leaves
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 275ml beef stock
  • 225g closed cup mushrooms
  • 3 x 22½g sheets filo pastry
  • 1 medium egg, beaten

method

  1. Peel and slice the onion and place in a pan. Remove all visible fat from the steak, toss in the cornflour and add it to the pan with the bay leaves and seasoning. Add the stock and about 150ml water to just cover the beef. Bring to the boil, cover and simmer for 1½ hours until the beef is tender. Cool, then discard the bay leaves.
  2. Preheat the oven to 220°C/200°C Fan/Gas 7. Quarter the mushrooms and place in a 1.2 litres pie dish. Add the beef and onions using a slotted spoon, and pour over about 200ml of the cooking liquid to come halfway up the dish. The meat will come to the top, but once the mushrooms cook down the level will sink.
  3. Brush each sheet of pastry with egg, lightly scrunch up and place on top of the meat, pulling the sheets out to make sure all the meat is covered. Brush generously with egg and bake for 20 minutes. Lower the heat to 180°C/160°C Fan/Gas 4 and continue to cook for a further 20 minutes until golden and hot. Serve with green vegetables.
