When I decided to dedicate 2018 on the blog to a majority Mrs Beeton theme, I asked around and asked any pensioner I knew what their favourite foods was growing up.

These were all people that were raised on the Mrs Beeton Book Of Household Management. The one thing they all had in common was homemade steak pie.

Some preferred their homemade steak pie with lamb, some with beef, some with kidney added, but the main opinion was that homemade steak pie always ruled!

My way to have a homemade steak pie is with delicious air fryer roast potatoes, garden peas and lots of thick beef gravy.

I absolutely hate kidneys and it reminds me of when my mum used to make my dad steak and kidney pie.

I am sure it was delicious, and I am sure at the time my mums’ steak and kidney pie was my dad’s favourite food (and probably still is).

But I hated it and still the thought of kidneys makes me want to throw up. It always filled the kitchen with its kidney smell when I came home from school and as a vegetarian at the time, you couldn’t get any worse even if you tried.

As you know I am obsessed with my kitchen gadgets and in this homemade steak pie recipe I will be pairing up my two favourite kitchen gadgets:

While the air fryer and the instant pot are working hard, I can be making my homemade shortcrust pastry for the topping.

Then when the homemade steak pie is cooking in the oven I can be warming up the peas and making sure we have some gravy ready.

It makes it so much easier to make homemade steak pie, without it feeling like it is a real effort to put together.

But best of all we have leftovers. I am all for spare food that you can make from the same batch and then freeze for later. Not only did we feed the four of us for Sunday dinner but it also did:

  • A full container of homemade steak pie filling
  • A full homemade steak pie ready for the oven for another day

  • If not already diced, dice your beef stewing steak and place it into the Instant Pot. Peel and dice your vegetables and add it to the Instant Pot too.
  • Place the Instant Pot on the sauté setting and with a tablespoon of olive oil sauté it for a minute or two.
  • Cancel the sauté, and place 500ml of beef stock into the Instant Pot. Place the lid on the Instant Pot, set the valve to sealing and cook for 50 minutes.
  • Whilst the beef is cooking make your shortcrust pastry. Then peel and dice your potatoes into roast potato shapes.
  • When the Instant Pot beeps, drain the liquid from the Instant Pot and then add some gravy granules to the Instant Pot among the beef and vegetables. Add a little liquid at a time until you have a medium to thick beef gravy.
  • Add the seasoning and give it one last stir.
  • Fill a pie dish with homemade steak pie filling. Then layer your shortcrust pastry on top. Add some egg wash and create a couple of slits so that the pie can breathe while cooking.
  • Bake your pie in the oven for 40 minutes at 180c/360f or until the pastry is golden.
  • While your pie is cooking make the sides. Place the roast potatoes in the air fryer with 1tsp of olive oil and cook for 10 minutes at 180c/360f. Boil your peas in warm water in a small pan.
  • 10. Finally, add a little extra of your stock from earlier with a little bit more of your gravy granules to make a thick gravy to go with your homemade pie.
  • 11. Serve together warm.


When I cook with garden peas, I tend to pour them into a small pan and cover them with water, bring to the boil and then simmer for a minute or two. I don’t measure them out and just assume that you have a handful per person. Its up to you what vegetables you put in your homemade steak pie. We used white potatoes, white onion, swede and carrots.
I always wait until my homemade steak pie has been cooking in the oven for 20 minutes and then cook the roasties and the peas and make the gravy. It gives you the chance for everything to be warm and ready at the same time. I use these gravy granules. It thickens up your homemade beef pie and your beef gravy. You only need about 1-2 teaspoons each time you use it.
You could of course cook the filling in a lot less time in the Instant Pot BUT it won’t be tender and instead you risk tough beef.

  1. As a vegetarian who was brought up eating meat, and loved the taste of meat, but when I realised the horrendous abuse factory farmed animals suffer, I stopped eating them, and you say you were a vegetarian, I was wondering why one used to be a vegetarian and then is not longer.

    • Hi Joseph,

      Thanks for your comment.

      I was a vegetarian from the age of 11 to the age of 16. It was more a fussy teenage phase that made me want to be a vegetarian. I returned to meat mainly because as someone that is allergic to nuts and hates mushrooms it was a nightmare eating out. It was either a nut roast on the menu or mushroom stroganoff.

      So i returned to meat.

      Then i met and married a chef and he taught me more about meat and i fell in love with meat.

      If you love meat i would recommend moving towards organic meat and meat that is farmed properly and not just the cheap meat that we associate with supermarkets. Here is a review of the place we recommend: http://recipethis.com/butcher-box-review-my-ultimate-butcher-box-review/

      kind regards
