There are some nights - and we all have them - when you really can't be bothered to do anything more for dinner than turn on the oven and bung something in. This is the pie for those nights. It's a hearty, family-friendly, puff-pastry-topped pie with slow cooked chunks of beef, simple veg and a thick sauce of homemade stock, tomatoes and - would you credit it? - just a hint of Vegemite. It don't come more Aussie than that. We brown the beef and cook it with a base of onion, carrot, garlic and celery before adding tomato paste, veal stock and tomatoes.  We then add seasoning, thyme and Vegemite for extra flavour.
