I told you on my facebook page that I was making a Steak Pie following the TasteMagNZ recipe. I am not a big fan of pies or probably less fan than Kiwis are pie’s lover. But the magazine said we could win one of this super Vitamix blender if I am sharing a nice picture. So I thought I should try! And eating a pie during the winter is always good to warm up our body.

The Easiest Steak Pie Recipe Ever !

So whatever happened with the contest I wanted to share the recipe because this Steak Pie was really tasty and the easiest meat pie recipe I ever made. The recipe I am sharing here is almost the same as the one in the magazine. I followed the quantity but I did not cook the beef in the oven as they did. I preferred to use a cast iron pan.

    Hi Kate! Great! I baked the pie at 180C. It is ready when the crust is golden brown between 35-45 minutes maximum. I used different sort of red wine and it always taste good. I love shiraz and French Cote du Rhone. I hope you enjoy this pie! Carine.
