200g sliced button mushrooms
3 cloves garlic- crushed
2g smashed black peppercorns
500 ml water
1 knorr beef stock cube
Sprig fresh Rosemary

Coat the beef if a little flour so it dry and able to colour. Fry in some sunflower oil until brown.
Add diced onions and mushrooms and continue to colour on high heat stirring the bottom of the pan to release crusty bits.
Once onions and mushrooms have some colour add the crushed garlic, peppercorns and a teaspoon good quality salt, cook for around 30 secs then add water, stock pot and 30g sago that has been soaked in water for 20 minutes and drained.
Gently simmer for 15 minutes then set aside to cool.
Once cooled add to tin/pastry of choice.
Line a tin with puff pastry (20x4cm size was used for this recipe), add cold filling, top with puff pastry egg wash and chopped fresh rosemary
Bake at 185.c for 45 mins.
Top tip from Chef is to include Sago pearls which traditionally are used to thicken the gravy and give that satisfying gelatinous texture. Don’t forget to tag us in your pie creations on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to be featured our social!
