Don’t tell me that you are not drooling just a little… as this is the Famous Pepper Steak Pie you need to make asap

  3. Knead it till smooth.

Meat filling:

  1. Add diced-up steak meat with small diced celery, carrot, and onion.
  2. Add salt and pepper together with beef stock powder.
  3. Let it simmer for a while I mix it through then I add water mixed with food caramel (it adds richness and color to the dish).
    You can get it in the Maggi brand.
  4. Cook until meat can break apart when squeezing between fingers.
  5. Thicken then by adding flour to water and a few more drops of food caramel.
  6. The mixture must cool completely before adding to the pastry.
  7. Spray the pie shell and add the pastry.
  8. Let it rest a bit to prevent shrinking.
  9. Add the meat mixture to the pie.
  10. Top with pepper (I add a slice of tomato to it).
  11. Then cover with puff pastry sealing it with a smear of water. Roll the extra pastry off to neaten up your pie.
  12. Make a little slice in the puff pastry for steam to escape, and brush with egg wash (water and egg beaten).
  13. Sprinkle with more pepper and bake at 200 C for about 25 min – 30min.
  14. Enjoy and happy cooking.
  15. Additional note:  The inside of my pie I added cheese and a slice of tomato
