Steak & Kidney Pie

  • j

Are there any Brits out there who have a good S&K recipe? I've tried various recipes online that all fall flat on flavor.

  1. Steak and kidney pie rules (mine at least):

    * Shortcrust pastry please. The puff pastry lids you see on pies in pubs are crap.
    * Pick a cut of beef that will add plenty of oomph to your gravy while still remaining moist and flavoursome after a longish braise. Shin for mine.
    * Beer, stout or wine to braise the meat in. Your choice. Good stout works well.
    * English mustard on the side.

    Can't go too far wrong.
