Epic Steak and Vegetable Pie with a delicious golden filo pastry topping - tender pieces of beef with carrots and onion in a deliciously rich homemade gravy.
Rich Tender Beef and Vegetable Pie
Have I mentioned how much my family love a good ole pie? I think just the word pie makes you instantly think of hearty comforting food and that's before you even know what the filling is.
and pie can come in such an array of different forms - potato topped, vegetable topped, pastry topped and well whatever you want to top it with kind of pies.
For me I love a rich beef pie, you know the sort I mean, right? tender chunks of beef in a tasty thick gravy is just the perfect combination.
Filo or Phyllo Pastry Topped Pie
When trying to eat healthier, that yummy puff or shortcrust pastry that tends to be the casing for most delicious pies, can come with quite a few calories and use up a good few of your daily points allowance.
So what do you do when you really fancy that pastry filled pie? Compromise of course.
Filo or Phyllo Pastry is a great light and healthier choice while still giving that crunchy crispy golden topping. It works amazingly well for any kind of pie, savoury or sweet.
What about a Gluten Free Topping?
That's a valid question too, how can you enjoy this pie if you are gluten free?
I recommend switching out the filo/phyllo pastry for a potato topping like I use on this "No Pastry" Pie
Rich Onion Gravy
When it comes to a pie, there is nothing better than a rich gravy that coats the meat and vegetables and this yummy gravy is homemade. Based on my amazing and popular Gravy, which uses onion, stock and a few other ingredients.
Don't try and rush the gravy stage, I know it may seem time-consuming, but trust me it's worth it for that deep and rich flavour. If you want you can make the gravy part in advance the night day/night before so you are all ready to go with the remaining steps to the recipe.
The Best Beef for Steak and Vegetable Pie
Stewing beef (chuck beef), it is just the perfect cut for any kind of pie because it is perfect for this style of cooking and remains nice and tender.
It's often on sale too here, so whenever it goes on sale I grab a large pack or two to turn into meals for the freezers and this week it was used in my Tuscan Beef Casserole and of course this amazing Epic Steak Vegetable Pie
Vegetables for Steak and Vegetable Pie
I kept it simple with just carrots and onion it's the combo the kids love the most, so I like to keep them happy.
But don't be afraid to vary it up with whatever you have, so long as you ensure you don't pack it out too much so that it soaks up all that rich gravy you are really good to go with any vegetables you like, mushrooms, peas, leeks or even cubes of potato.
How to Serve this Epic Steak Vegetable Pie with Filo Pastry
The pie itself is pretty filling, so I paired it up with some healthy vegetables, which was some chopped kale and zucchini which I lightly sauteed in a pan with a little seasoning (paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and black pepper).
Of course, there is nothing quite like Pie and Mash with Gravy too, so if you just can't eat pie without mash, check out some of these mash recipes, there are a few to choose from.
- SWEET POTATO MASH
- CHEDDAR AND SPRING ONION MASH
- SOUR CREAM AND SPRING ONION CAULIFLOWER MASH
- MASHED POTATOES
and if you want extra gravy - you can never have enough batches of my yummy gravy on hand in the freezer.
