Foodie Friday: Beef, Vegetable & Ale Pie

beefpie(Serves 4)

Ingredients:
700g frozen casserole vegetables
200g leftover cooked mixed vegetables, roughly chopped
500ml jar beef and ale cooking sauce
300g leftover roast beef, chopped into chunks
375g pack ready rolled shortcrust pastry
1 medium egg, lightly beaten
2 x 200g packs trimmed fine beans

Method:
1. Preheat the oven to 200C, fan 180C, gas 6. Steam or microwave the casserole vegetables according to pack instructions. Transfer to a large pan along with the leftover cooked veg, the cooking sauce and the leftover roast beef. Simmer over a low heat for 2-3 minutes, stirring, then transfer to a 1.5 litre pie dish.
2. Unroll the pastry and place over the top of the dish. Trim the overhanging pastry with a sharp knife, then crimp the edge of the pastry using your forefinger and thumb to seal. Cut a small cross in the centre of the pastry as a vent. Decorate the top of the pie with leaf shapes made from the trimmings, if you like. Brush the top with the beaten egg.
3. Bake on the top shelf of the oven for 20-25 minutes until the pastry is golden. Five minutes before the end of cooking time, boil or steam the beans and serve with the pie.

Top tip: Turn this into a hearty stew by leaving off the pastry and topping with dumplings made with any dumpling mix.
