A low syn steak & ale Slimming World friendly pie that works out at 3 syns (2.62) per portion if using oats as part of your Healthy Extra B.  If not using our HE B, it is 4.5 syns per person.  Or why not thicken with a 2 heaped tsps of gravy granules for 2 syns instead, making it just over 3 syns per person?

Ingredients
  • Frylight
  • 800 g lean diced beef
  • 250 g lean smoked bacon medallions sliced
  • 1 stick celery sliced
  • 2 onions chopped
  • 4 carrots cut in to chunks
  • 200 ml Guinness (3.5 Syns)
  • 1 beef stock pots or 2 to taste
  • Bunch fresh thyme
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce or Henderson's Relish
  • 250 g mushrooms halved
  • Seasoning
  • 400 ml water
  • 40 g basic oats (7 syns or syn free if using as a quarter of your HE B) OR thicken with 2 tsp gravy granules at 2 syns instead.
  • 50 g filo pastry (7 Syns in total) Cut in to 12 squares, scrunched up
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven at 180 degrees.

  2. Spray a lidded deep based oven proof pan with frylight and saute the onions with some seasoning.  (I used my non-stick saute pan with lid).

  3. Add the beef and continue to fry until all sides are seared and transfer temporary in to a bowl.

  4. Now add the bacon to the deep pan and fry until cooked, then add all the vegetables and fry for another 5 minutes.

  5. Transfer the beef and onions back in to the pan, then add everything else (except the filo pastry) and bring to a simmer.

  6. Place the lid on top and place in the oven for 1 hour 30 minutes.

  7. Remove from the oven and place the scrunched squares of filo pastry on top of the beef filling and spray well with frylight.  Make sure as much of the filling is covered and bake for a further 20 minutes, but this time without the lid.

  8. Serve with veg and mash.  And don't forget to tag me on Instagram with a photo if you enjoyed it! (I'm @TastefullyVikkie) :)
