Beef, bacon, mushroom pie with a layer of tasty grated cheese, potato/sweet potato mash topped with pastry


Beef, bacon, mushroom pie with a layer of tasty grated cheese, potato/sweet potato mash topped with pastry.. Ready for the oven.

Add a splash of olive oil into a frypan or I use my cast iron dish with a lid and let it heat up. Sauté the onions, mushrooms and bacon. Coat the diced beef in a mix of plain flour, beef stock and cracked pepper and salt. Add the meat to the pan and brown. Cover the meat mixture with a few cups of beef stock (just enough to cover it) being to the boil, then put the lid on and simmer on low for around 4 hrs or until the meat is melt in your mouth. Let it cool and put into individual serving dishes that are oven proof. Top with some grated cheese, mash (I used cream in the mash instead of butter and milk for a change)and then the pastry. Glaze with egg and bake in a hot oven until the pastry is golden.
