Holiday.Cook's picture
Ingredients
  Butter 50 Gram
  Onions 2 Small, finely chopped
  Beef shin 1 Kilogram, diced
  Plain flour 75 Gram
  Beef stock 750 Milliliter
  Thyme sprig 2
  Worcestershire sauce 2 Tablespoon
  Flat-leaf parsley 1 Cup (16 tbs), chopped
  Nutmeg 1 Dash (A Grating)
  Puff pastry 500 Gram (1 Block)
  Egg 1 , beaten
Directions

Melt the butter in a large casserole dish with a lid.
Add the onions and cook over a medium heat until they're soft and caramelised, about 10-15 minutes.
Scoop out then add the beef and cook it over a high heat until browned all over (you might need to do this in batches).
Add back the onions then sprinkle over the flour, stir and continue cooking for another 2 minutes.
Gradually add the stock stirring constantly until the mixture boils and thickens.
Add all the remaining ingredients.
Cover the pan and simmer over a low heat for 1 1/2 hours or until the beef is tender.
Heat the oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6.
Spoon the filling into a large pie dish.
Roll out the puff pastry and lay over the top.
Press down and trim the edges then brush all over with beaten egg and prick a few holes in the top to let out the steam.
Cook for 45-50 minutes until the pastry is golden and crisp.
