low-fat cooking spray
2 medium onions, diced finely
1 medium carrot, sliced finely
2 celery sticks, sliced finely
2 sprigs fresh sage, chopped
200g (7oz) mushrooms
4 Tablespoons plain flour 400g lean steak, cubed
150ml (5fl oz) stock
150ml (5fl oz) Guinness
Salt and pepper
100g (3.5oz) shop bough ready rolled puff pastry
splash of skim milk

Cooking Instructions:
Preheat oven to 150C/300F.

Heat a non stick pan with low fat spray and fry onions, carrot, celery and sage until softened, then remove from the heat and put in an oven proof casserole dish.

In the same pan fry the mushrooms until softened, then add to casserole dish.

Sprinkle flour on a plate, season, then roll the cubed steak until covered. Spray the pan with low fat spray again and fry meat until browned all over. Add to the casserole dish. Pour the stock and Guinness over, cover and put in the oven for 2 hours.

Meanwhile, place a 20cm (8-inch) pie dish upside down on the rolled out pasty and cut a circle slightly larger than the dish.

When the mixture is cooked, transfer to the pie dish and increase temperature to 220C/425F.

Place pastry on top of the dish using any trimmings to make leaves for the top. Push down the pastry to the edge of the dish to seal. Brush with a little skimmed milk and make a slit in the middle to allow steam to escape.

Bake for 15-20 minutes until risen or golden.

Serving Suggestions:
Serve with mashed potatoes and seasonal vegetables.

Additional Comments:
This is a low fat pie recipe, ideal for those people who love food, but have a little too much round their belly - hence the low fat cooking spray.

You can mess around with the ingredients to change up how much Guinness you put in (it's great with 300ml Guinness and no stock!) Baby button mushrooms are the best to use, as they give you tender little mouthfuls of mushroom - but you can use any type really, to give a more mushroomy taste.

This is a favourite recipe in my family, and is great on a cold winters day.
