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?).
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? 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. 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.
