Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 pounds of beef stew meat
  • 2 cups of sliced mushrooms
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons of all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup of beef broth
  • 1/2 cup of red wine
  • 2 tablespoons of tomato paste
  • 1 teaspoon of thyme leaves
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 sheets of puff pastry
  • 1 egg, beaten (for egg wash)

Instructions

  1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the beef stew meat and brown on all sides. Remove the beef from the skillet and set it aside.
  2. In the same skillet, add a bit of oil if needed. Add the chopped onion and cook until translucent.
  3. Add the minced garlic and sliced mushrooms, and sauté until the mushrooms are browned and the liquid has evaporated.
  4. Sprinkle the flour over the mushroom mixture and stir to combine. Cook for a minute to remove the raw flour taste.
  5. Slowly add the beef broth, red wine, and tomato paste, stirring constantly until the mixture thickens.
  6. Return the browned beef to the skillet and add thyme, salt, and pepper. Simmer for about 30 minutes until the beef is tender and the flavors meld together.
  7. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  8. Transfer the beef and mushroom filling into a pie dish.
  9. Roll out one sheet of puff pastry and place it over the filling. Trim any excess pastry and press the edges to seal.
  10. Brush the top of the pastry with beaten egg for a golden finish.
  11. Bake in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes or until the pastry is puffed and golden brown.
  12. Allow it to cool slightly before serving. Enjoy your Classic Beef and Mushroom Pie!
