  • Low-calorie cooking spray
  • 600g fillet steak, all visible fat removed, cut into small chunks
  • 400g button mushrooms, quartered
  • 200g celeriac, peeled and cut into small cubes
  • 200g small shallots, peeled
  • 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • A small handful of fresh thyme, finely chopped
  • 200ml beef stock
  • 2 tbsp Guinness
  • 1 level tbsp gravy granules
  • 100g Jus-Rol Light Puff Pastry
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten

For the mash:

  • 800g floury potatoes, such as Desiree or King Edward, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 400g Brussel sprouts, finely shredded
  • 100ml hot vegetable stock
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper




  1. Preheat your oven to 220°C/425F/Gas mark 7. Place a large, heavy-based frying pan sprayed with low calorie cooking spray over a high heat. Add the steak and stir-fry for 5-6 minutes, until browned.
  2. Add the mushrooms, celeriac, shallots, Worcestershire sauce, thyme, stock, Guinness and gravy granules and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat to medium and cook for 6-8 minutes, or until the sauce has thickened.
  3. Remove from the heat and divide the mixture between 4 deep, oval pie dishes, each about 12cm long.
  4. Roll out the pastry and cut out 4 lids to fit the pie dishes. Brush the rims of the dishes with water, cover the pies with the pastry lids and press down with a fork. Brush each lid with the beaten egg. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until risen and golden.
  5. Meanwhile, boil the potatoes for 12-15 minutes, or until tender, adding the sprouts for the last 5 minutes. Drain, return to the pan and add the stock. Season and mash well then serve immediately.
