I Like Pie!

There is something comforting about pie. It's full of gooey chunks of meat suspended in warm gravy and wrapped in flaky pastry. But pie hasn't always been this wholesome, in fact in the ye olden days the pie crust was close to inedible as designed to be seven inches thick to withstand hours of cooking.

But back to this delicious Beef and Vegetable Pie, which comes from the cookbook, 1000 Best Ever Recipes from AWW. It's one of my favourites as it used cheap gravy beef and a number of vegetables - potato, carrot, zucchini, onion, celery, peas and mushrooms. It makes an excellent freezer friendly meal but the only thing about the recipe is it tends to be a little liquidy. I would recommend thickening the gravy before you pour it into the baking dish.

For the food pornographers, here is a slice of the pie. It's simple, delicious and makes a great rainy day meal.
