Tender beef and salty oysters in a scrumptious oozy-boozy sauce make this crisp pastry-topped pie a sure-fire success!

Method

1. Heat the oil in large casserole dish and fry the beef over a medium heat until browned all over. Remove the beef and set aside.

2. Melt the butter in the pan and add the shallots. Cook for 3-4 minutes.

3. Add the bacon, thyme and onions and cook for 3-4 minutes more. Remove and set aside. Add the Guinness to the pan and stir in the cooked bacon and onion mixture. Cook for 3-4 minutes and then add the meat.

4. Stir in the garlic, red wine and Madeira. Cover and cook slowly for 1 hour 30 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the oysters.

5. Set the oven to 200°C/gas 6. Roll the pastry out to cover the top of the casserole dish and crimp the edges neatly. Brush with beaten egg and bake for 25-30 minutes, until the pastry is risen and golden. Serve immediately.
