Preparation steps

1.
Heat the oil in a large pan and fry the beef until browned. Add the vegetables and cook for 5 minutes.
2.
Stir in the flour and cook for 1 minute. Stir in the tomato puree, stock and Worcestershire sauce. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat, cover and simmer for 20 minutes. Set aside to cool.
3.

Heat the oven to 400°F. Grease a 10" pie or baking dish.

4.
Roll out the pastry on a floured work surface. Use 2/3 of the pastry to line the dish.
5.
Fill with the meat filling and use the remaining pastry to make a lid. Use the trimmings to make decorations if you wish. Cut a slit in the top to allow the steam to escape during baking.
6.

Brush the pastry with beaten egg yolk and bake for 20-25 minutes until the pastry is golden and the filling is piping hot. Garnish with parsley.
