This week’s theme for Wednesdays with Donna Hay is BEEF!  It’s what’s for Dinner. And that is a good thing for a houseful of carnivores.  We don’t eat beef nearly as often as we used to so we tend to enjoy it more and it want it tasty.  Donna’s beef and peppercorn pies was perfect.  A whole lot of flavor in a small package.

Well, in our case, not so small a package.  Instead of making 4 small pies I made one medium {about 1/3 of the recipe} for the two of us.

Using a regular pie shell for the bottom she topped the beef cooked with peppercorns, wine, and stock with puff pastry which gave us a wonderfully crispy, flaky crust.  Simple ingredients.    It was delicious.  Just the right amount of wine to bring out the flavor.  Definitely a keeper.  And if you didn’t want to make a pie it would be great over rice or potatoes.

The recipe is from Donna’s Flavours, page 140.  We don’t publish the recipes.  Instead we would like to encourage you to buy her books.  You will not be sorry.  And if you want to join us here, please do. We’d love to have you.  Just make a dish from the theme, post it and add your link.  Easy Peasy!
