Steak Bake

Makes 2-3 | studentengagement@staffs.ac.uk

If you're missing Wrights Pies and Greggs, then look no further. This recipe uses relatively simply and easy ingredients that you can get from the shops, and will make around 2-3 pies. 

You Will Need:

  • A Baking Tray
  • A Frying Pan 
  • A Measuring Jug 
  • A Spoon 
  • A Fork 
  • A Knife 

Ingredients:

  • 100g Finely Diced Beef/Steak Chunks in a Tin (or meat alternative) 
  • 200mls Beef or Vegetable Stock 
  • 1tbsp Cornflour with 100mls water to make a slurry
  • Puff Pastry
  • One Egg, whisked (or milk alternative)

 

Step One:

Preheat your oven to 200 degrees.

Step Two:

Cook your finely diced beef in a frying pan until browned - if you're using a meat alternative, cook until ready. If you're using steak chunks in a tin, warm these through in a saucepan. 

Step Three:

Once your beef is browned, or your alternative cooked, pour over your beef or vegetable stock, followed by your cornflour and water mix. If you're using steak chunks in a tin, you can skip this step as your chunks should already come with some sauce. 

Step Four:

Season the mixture with salt and pepper and let it boil to thicken to your liking. 

Step Five:

Cut your puff pastry into squares. Your pastry can be as large or as small as you wish, just make sure the 'top' pieces are slightly larger than the bottom pieces. 

Step Six:

Egg wash the edges of your pastry with your whisked egg or milk alternative. 

Step Seven:

Spoon your filling on to your egg washed pastry squares, being careful not to overload them. 

Step Eight:

Place your other puff pastry square on top. 

Step Nine:

Seal the pastry by pressing a fork around the edges. 

Step Ten:

Score the top of your pastry using a knife. 

Step Eleven:

Egg wash or milk wash the tops of your pastry.

Step Twelve:

Place the uncooked pastry in the oven for 20 minutes, or until golden brown and piping hot. Then, tuck in and enjoy this delicious steak bake!
