Beef & Vegetable Individual Filo Pies (Frozen)
My household have a "thing" for individually sized pie-type dinners. This may reveal a serious character flaw relating to a difficulty with sharing. But that's not the issue at hand here.
These parcels contain premium beef mince (>95% fat free), loads of veg (largely hidden, apart from a sprinkle of peas), cooked and then wrapped in filo pastry. In the interests of full disclosure the filo is not housemade. If I'm being really honest I don't have any plans to start making the filo from scratch... I can't fathom rolling anything that thin!
The pies can be cooked from frozen in around 45mins. Brush with melted butter first and when they're golden brown and delicious looking, pull them out.
Ingredients: Beef mince, onion, carrot, celery, peas, filo pastry, tomato paste, balsamic vinegar, vegetable stock (housemade), garlic, olive oil, ground fennel, dried oregano, salt & pepper
