I served our pie, simply, with maple-glazed carrots. I steamed the carrots until almost soft and then sauteed them in a bit of butter with a drizzle of maple syrup. I always find I use an enormous amount of meat when I make pies (mostly because I usually feed about 8-10 people on a pie) but if you feel like there’s too much filling, simply freeze it and use it as stew later on. This recipe will yield enough pie for about 6 people.

Serves approximately 6

1.5kg beef shin, bone removed, meat cut into chunks
2 large onions, peeled and finely chopped
4 large carrots, peeled and finely chopped
4 celery sticks, finely chopped
2 bay leaves
4 garlic cloves, finely chopped
2 tins chopped tomatoes
2 tsp sugar
1l beef stock (using NoMu Beef Fonds)
salt & pepper to taste
2 x ready-rolled puff pastry (use an all-butter one if you can)
1 egg, beaten

  1. Fry the meat in a large pot until browned all over and set aside.
  2. Fry the onions, carrots, celery and bay leaves sticks until soft and fragrant, about 10 minutes.
  3. Add the garlic and fry for another minute before adding the chopped tomatoes and sugar.
  4. Add the meat back to the pot and pour in the chicken stock. Stir everything together and place the marrow bones on top.
  5. Reduce the heat and place a lid on the pot. Allow to simmer for 2 hour until the meat is soft. (you could also place the stew in the oven at 160°c)
  6. After 2 hours, remove the lid and allow the sauce to reduce for another 30-45 minutes.
  7. When the stew is cooked, pre-heat the oven to 180°c. Remove all the bones from the stew.
  8. On a floured surface, roll out the pastry to fit an oven-proof dish.
  9. Place one layer of pastry into the greased dish, add the beef shin filling and place the other layer of pastry over the top.
  10. Crimp the edges of the pastry and brush with the beaten egg.
  11. Place the pie in the oven for 30-45 minutes until the pastry is golden and cooked.
  12. Allow to stand for 5 minutes after baking and serve
