“ Brand: Sainsbury's / Type: Pie „
I have just finished this excellent ready made steak puff pastry pie.
The pie comes in a small silver tray and you put that in the oven, around it was a small box with a picture of the pie and a meal that it would go well with. It looks really juicy on the picture and this is certainly true once cooked. I got two small pies for £3 and it states that each pie serves 1 person. Its very filling and so if you were on a real budget you could even share one between two if you have potatoes and vegetables.
The pie has pieces of steak beef which are British, the meat is quite tender and I think if you leave them in the oven for about 30 to 40 minutes you should have a really hot centre. The pastry is very crispy on the top and when you cut down into the rest of the pie it is a lot softer so you get a good contrast.
I actually made some extra gravy to go with this meal but ended up not needing it all as in the pie there is a good helping of gravy and it made the meal a lot less dry.
If you are looking for a cheap and tasty meal then try it. According to sainsburys health circle on the front of the box it is pretty bad for you with 643 calories per pie, although theres not a lot of sugar at 1.4g so you can get away with it once in a while.
