Ingredients
  • 700g pack Asda Butcher's Selection Slow Cook Stewing Steak
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 350g carrots, diced
  • 2 level tsp dried mixed herbs
  • 1 beef stock cube
  • 2 tbsp tomato purée
  • 3 large potatoes, peeled
  • 1 large swede, peeled
  • 3 level tbsp Asda Gravy Granules for Meat
  • 25g butter
Method
  • Pre-heat the oven to 150C/130C Fan/Gas 2. Put the stewing steak in a casserole dish and add onion, carrots and herbs.

  • Dissolve beef stock cube in 450ml hot water, add tomato purée and stir to mix. Pour into the casserole, cover and cook in the oven for 2 hours 30 minutes.

  • Half an hour before the beef is ready, put potatoes and swede, all cut into even-sized chunks, in a pan. Add cold water to cover, then put a lid on the pan and bring to the boil. Simmer until tender.

  • Stir gravy granules into the stew. Lift out the meat and veg with a slotted spoon and transfer to a pie dish. Add enough gravy to moisten the pie filling; reserve the rest.

  • Increase the oven temperature to 200C/180C Fan/Gas 6. Drain the swede and potato, then mash with butter. Spread over the pie filling and bake for 15-20 minutes. Heat the reserved gravy and serve with the pie.
