How to make it

  • Season the flour and toss the steak and kidney in it to coat.
  • Heat the oil and butter in a large pan and fry the meat for 5 minutes or until brown.
  • Add the onions and cook for another 3-4 minutes, stirring.
  • Add the bay leaves, stout and stock.
  • Stir in the gravy browning and cook for 2-3 minutes, until thickened.
  • Cover and simmer for about 1 hour and 30 minutes, until the meat is tender.
  • For the pastry, mix the flour and salt together and gently add the butter. Make a well adding the water and bring lightly together to make a dough.
  • Roll out into a rectangle and mark into thirds. Fold over the end thirds into the centre one, turn through 90º and repeat two more times. Chill for half an hour.
  • When the meat is cooked, cool slightly and tip into a pie dish. Roll out the pastry on a floured surface a little bigger than the size of the dish using the trimmings to make a strip the width of the rim.
  • Brush the rim of the pie dish with beaten egg and lay the pastry strip on top to make a seal. Brush again with egg and lay the lid on top. Crimp or flute the edges, brush the lid with the remaining egg and make a slit in the top.
  • Bake for about 20 minutes, until golden.
