2 Syn Steak and Mushroom Pie | Slimming World

Since starting on Slimming World one thing we miss is pie! Mmmmm piiiiiiiie! We came up with a Slimming World alternative, a 2 Syn Chicken and Mushroom Pie, so we thought we’d try it with steak and came up this 2 Syn Steak and Mushroom Pie!

Now, we know there’s probably a lot of Slimming World friendly pies made with filo out there, but this is our version (so it’s obviously our favourite, although we’re a little bit biased perhaps?).

2 Syn Steak and Mushroom Pie

 

As we all know, shortcrust and puff pastry are quite high in syns. When I say quite high, I mean silly high. Filo is a good low syn alternative and you still get a nice crunchy lid. You’ll even save around half the amount of syns if you switch to filo.

The Instant Pot

What can I say about the Instant Pot? It’s like a like a slow cooker/pressure cooker hybrid, and it’s probably one of our favourite, and most used kitchen gadgets. It makes cooking this 2 Syn Steak & Mushroom Pie SO much easier. The filling will take 30 minutes in the pressure cooker compared with over 4 hours in the slow cooker!!

If you’ve never heard of it you really should go and check it out over on Amazon. Imagine the best Slow Cooker in the world, then times that by a hundred. There’s not much that it can’t do!

When ever we need to replace oil to cook things in the oven we use Frylight. Perfect for everyday frying and cooking, it delivers exactly one calorie per spray, which makes it Syn free! The Butter Flavour is perfect for this 2 Syn Steak and Mushroom Pie recipe as you would normally brush the filo with melted butter before cooking.

INSTRUCTIONS
Pressure Cooker - Pie Filling
  1. Spray the Instant Pot/pressure cooker with frylight and place into Saute mode. Brown the steak in batches until it has browned then set aside
  2. Deglaze the pan with some of the beef stock, making sure there is nothing stuck to the bottom of the pan. Add the onions, mushrooms, red wine vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, tomato puree, stock pot (optional), and beef stock to the pan and stir well
  3. When the liquid starts to bubble add the steak & lock the lid. Place on Manual for 30 minutes. Make sure the valve on top is set to sealing & allow the Instant Pot/pressure cooker to release manually for 20 minutes after cooking
  4. Remove the lid and place the Instant Pot/pressure cooker back into Sautee mode & reduce the mixture until it reaches your desired thickness - you can also add some cornflour to thicken up if you don't wish to wait, but remember to add the syns
Slow Cooker - Pie Filling
  1. Spray a frying pan with frylight and brown the steak in batches. Place into the slow cooker
  2. Add all of the other pie filling ingredients and cook on high for 4 hours.
  3. Remove the lid and cook for a further hour & reduce the mixture until it reaches your desired thickness - you can also add some cornflour to thicken up if you don't wish to wait, but remember to add the syns
Assembling the Pie
  1. Pour the pie filling into an oven proof dish (we used a 19 cm shallow dish but you can use a smaller deeper one if you want)
  2. Take one sheet of filo, lay it out flat and spray generously with Butter Frylight
  3. Cut the sheet into 8 even pieces. Scrunch each piece up lightly then place them on top of the pie filling. Try to leave as fewer gaps as possible
  4. Spray with a little more Frylight
  5. Place the dish on a baking tray (just in case it drips) and cook for 15 - 20 minutes at 180°C or until the filo is golden brown and crisp all over
  6. Remove from the oven and serve

  1. I cooked this for tea tonight and it was divine and felt so naughty! Proper comfort food that was easy to cook and so tasty!

  2. Hello.
    Do you think it would be ok to make the pie mixture and leave it for a day or two then put the filo on and oven bake it?
    I am thinking I can use the slow cooker in an evening and then make the pie the next evening or the evening after?
    Thanks

    1. Hi Hells
      Yes you can make the pie filling in advance then just top it with the filo when you’re ready to cook it 🙂

  3. This looks lovely! Do you think I could use sunflower frylight instead of butter? Or wouldn’t it taste very nice?

  4. Wow wow wow….If you gave not made this then your missing out on a really fabulous pie! My husband requests this pie every week and gets excited when he lifts the lid on the slow cooker and realises that it’s the steak pie filling! Again another easy meal to make using your slow cooker. Tasty, delicious and filling….it also feels very naughty that your eating it lol! My kids love this meal to so I do t have to cook two separate meals. We cannot wait to try the chicken and mushroom pie next!

  5. Hi, I’m planning on making this, this week but was wondering what sort of temperature to set the oven at to cook the filo pastry topping on? Thank you 😄
