Low-calorie cooking spray
600g fillet steak, all visible fat removed, cut into small chunks
400g button mushrooms, quartered
200g celeriac, peeled and cut into small cubes
200g small shallots, peeled
2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
A small handful of fresh thyme, finely chopped
200ml beef stock
2 tbsp Guinness
1 level tbsp gravy granules
100g Jus-Rol Light Puff Pastry
1 egg, lightly beaten
For the mash:
800g floury potatoes, such as Desiree or King Edward, peeled and roughly chopped
400g Brussel sprouts, finely shredded
100ml hot vegetable stock
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Preheat your oven to 220°C/Fan 200°C/Gas mark 7. Place a large, heavy-based frying pan sprayed with low calorie cooking spray over a high heat. Add the steak and stir-fry for 5-6 minutes, until browned.
Add the mushrooms, celeriac, shallots, Worcestershire sauce, thyme, stock, Guinness and gravy granules and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat to medium and cook for 6-8 minutes, or until the sauce has thickened.
Remove from the heat and divide the mixture between 4 deep, oval pie dishes, each about 12 cm long.
Roll out the pastry and cut out 4 lids to fit the pie dishes. Brush the rims of the dishes with water, cover the pies with the pastry lids and press down with a fork. Brush each lid with the beaten egg. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until risen and golden.
Meanwhile, boil the potatoes for 12-15 minutes, or until tender, adding the sprouts for the last 5 minutes. Drain, return to the pan and add the stock. Season and mash well then serve immediately
