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!
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
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
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
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
Spray a frying pan with frylight and brown the steak in batches. Place into the slow cooker
Add all of the other pie filling ingredients and cook on high for 4 hours.
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
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)
Take one sheet of filo, lay it out flat and spray generously with Butter Frylight
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
Spray with a little more Frylight
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
