Chilli Beef Pies


Due to my change in work hours, it is getting harder and harder to prepare dinner regularly. One of my favourite meals to make and freeze are individual pies. This is also probably one of the hubby’s most requested meal-simply because it is easy for him to grab a few pies off the freezer and re-heat it before I come home or to take it to work for lunch.

It is rare that I buy a pie (Unless it is Jesters’ Pie) from the shops. There is just something odd or artificial testing in pies these days. Making our own pies means that my paranoid of what goes in our body gets satisfied and we have “slightly healthier” pies to eat.

Chilli Beef Pies (makes around 12-14 pies)
400 grams of lean beef mince
1 red onion chopped finely
chopped mushrooms
3 tsp of chilli powder
2 tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce
3 cups of shredded low fat cheese
5 pieces of reduced fat puff pastry

Defrost puff pastry. Heat 1 tsp of oil and cook onion till soft. Add mince and browned. Add mushrooms and chilli powder and sauce. Taste and season. Cool.
Preheat pie maker. Cut pastry to size. Place bigger round pastry onto maker. Top with beef then cheese. Cover with 2nd piece of pastry. Cook till machine says done!
Repeat for other pies!

Serve with salad and chips.
