The filling for this pie is a braise of diced chuck steak and simple veg - onions, celery and carrots - slowly cooked in deep, dark Guinness with thyme and bay leaves till it's rich and tender. We make our own short-crust pastry for this pie - it's nothing more complicated than flour, butter and iced water but oh my, it's delicious - roll it out and fill it with the beef before snap-freezing.

TO COOK : suitable to cook from frozen. Brush with eggwash and bake in a preheated 180C oven for 50 (from defrosted) to 60 minutes (from frozen) or until completely golden brown across the top. For a crisper base, then cover the top with foil and cook on for a further 15 minutes. Use scissors to snip down the sides of the pie foil and peel back to serve.
DEFROST INFORMATION: defrost overnight in the fridge or cook straight from frozen. Once defrosted, cook and consume within 48 hours.
