  • 1
    stick celery, finely chopped
  • 1
    carrot, peeled and finely chopped

Preheat oven to 160°C.

Heat a little olive oil in a heavy based casserole pan and sauté onions, garlic, celery, carrots and rosemary for a few minutes or until onions are golden brown.
Add beef and mushrooms and sauté until well browned.
Stir in flour and add wine and stock.
Cover casserole with a lid and place in the oven to cook slowly for about 3 hours or until beef is tender and sauce is reduced.
Remove from oven, transfer into a pie dish and allow to cool.
Increase oven temperature to 200°C.
Roll out pastry to ½ cm in thickness and cover the top of the pie. Trim off any excess pastry and press down the edges to seal.
Make a steam hole in the centre by slashing with a sharp knife, then brush the top of the pie with egg wash.
Place in oven and cook for about 25-30 minutes or until pastry has puffed and is golden brown.
Remove from oven and serve hot with steamed green peas.
