Makes 6 good portions:
1kg nice lean casserole steak - cubed
2 onions cut in half and sliced
10-15 green chillies - remove tops and slice down the middle lengthways ( leave the seed and pith in )
250mls red wine
1 pint beef stock
A little cornflour to thicken
Salt and Pepper to season
Ready rolled ( pre bought!) short crust pastry
1 egg beaten for glazing
Gently fry onions and chillies in a little oil in a large stockpot size pan. When onions are softish add steak and stir until all browned.
Add wine and stock and cook on the hob over a low heat for 3 hours stirring occasionally. Drain off most of the cooking liquid into another saucepan ( for the gravy later ) and season remaining mixture to taste. Thicken with a little cornflour and set aside to cool.
We ate ours accompanied with chips ( slimmimg world ) peas etc. It's a wonderful pie but not for the faint hearted!..
Thanks again Mr Debs.
