Fray Bentos Steak and Kidney Pie
Advantages: Good for a meal or snack.
I have been eating these pies for so many years, and I have always found them to be very tasty and satisfying and I bought this one for only £1 from Farm Foods and I thought it was a bargain price as these are usually priced for a lot more money.
It comes in a round pie shaped tin and the top of the tin can easily be removed with a can opener and the design of the top of the tin has shows the meat inside the pie and it looks a very tempting picture indeed.
Once opening the tin, the inside does not look that attractive, it is a pale beige colour pastry and looks very bland and but once placed into the oven for approximately 30 minutes, the top of the pasty rises and the smell is absolutely gorgeous while it is being cooked, the pastry is a puff pastry and it rises just above the top of the tin and once taken out of the oven and left to cool for a few minutes, and it is cut with a knife, the inside is revealed and it is a lovely juicy looking pie.
The texture of the steak meat is very soft and tender and it is in a rich beef gravy of a very good quality indeed and the meat is also good quality too and when it is eaten it just melts into the mouth and tastes absolutely delicious and it can easily feed 4 people, although I have been known to eat a full one to myself lol, I just think these pies are just brilliant value and quality and I always feel satisfied once I have eaten it.
It certainly does not taste at all bland as you can imagine once first opening the can, it is quite the opposite and for the richness of the gravy and the pastry top, and the top of the pastry is a nice crunchy texture and the underneath of the pastry is a little bit softer and the blend of all of them together tastes fabulous.
There is also kidney in this pie and it is a very good texture too, it is nice and soft and easy to swallow too, and I love this pie with mash or chips and it tastes just as good with both and I have also just eaten this on its own as a snack, as once I start eating it, it is very moreish and there is never any left for a later time in my home lol.
It is a very good food to eat if you are on a low budget and want a hot meal, especially in the winter time as it only cost a small amount of money for good quality meat and pie.
I think it is simply one of the best pies in a can in my opinion and I recommend it for anyone to give it a go and the tin can be recycled too.
The edges of the can is very sharp after opening it and once cooked it is advisable to be very careful handling it as it is just common sense but with the contents cooked inside this can, it can easily be forgotten it is sharp.
I rate this one 5 stars.
Summary: Good value for money.
