This is absolutely gorgeous. Everything goes so well together,was dubious about the soup part but you don’t even know it’s there.
I had to add water halfway through. Please make this!!


August 26, 2019


Absolutely delish!
We skipped the browning stage (though still floured it) and I doubled the pepper
It was amazing in pies and also in pies with cheese on top too
The hardest part was not eating it straight from the cooking bowl it was that good and it smelled amazing all day πŸ™‚
Thanks for a great recipe thoroughly enjoyed by my family x

Thanks for such a magnificent recipe. Definitely on the rotation now. Whole family loved it


August 19, 2019

This recipe is a 10/10!! I am not the best cook in the world and this was easy as… Tastes amazing as well! One of, if not, the best pie recipe there is… Do yourself a favor and make it, you won’t be disappointed.

Wow what an amazing pie 🀀🀀, I followed the recipe but added a bit of water during cooking as I thought it was a bit dry and I added more cracked black pepper as we like pepper , hubby asked for a 3rd one which means they were good, got his stamp of approval πŸ˜‚,
Will definitely be making these again πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹


July 11, 2019

It’s honestly the best!! Don’t change anything! I’m not a fan of chicken condensed soup, but you wouldn’t even know! Trust me!! Honestly the best recipe ever!!

Amazing and very tasty. . I β€˜sneak in’ some veggies too. All my family young and old love this pie filling

Karen Monaghan

Best pie ever, all 5 of us love it and look for more, I add chunks of sausage in mine, delish ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Karen Monaghan

Best steak pie recipe ever, there’s always one of us that don’t like something but we all love it. I also add chunks of sausage in with the meat and they all ask for leftovers for lunch, you won’t be disappointed ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️


July 1, 2019

Most amazing pie we have ever tasted. The filling was perfect. We will be making again.


June 19, 2019

Delicious! My new favourite pie recipe. Was a big hit with the family.


June 15, 2019

Cooked filling night before and made into a family pie for dinner tonight. I used rump steak as that’s what I had. I’m thinking the 20mins in the oven must be for individual pies, as mine took at least 60mins to brown up. Will do individual pies next time, maybe in pie maker. I warmed the meat filling before adding to pastry. Give it a try and I hope you love it as much as we did πŸ‘


June 14, 2019

This is my favourite recipe, I add a fair bit of pepper to mk peppered steak pies πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹ it is divine!!

Ela Hope

I made this yesterday. Tasted amazing. Kids devoured it. I doubled the recipe as there are 7 of us. It had a bit too much liquid for a pie. I simply scooped out the meat and will have the rest with mash tonight.

Erin Geladaris

May 27, 2019

10/10 so tasty. Next time I will try with mash potato on top.

Kristy Garner

Simply amazing, best pie filling ever. Definitely making again.

Larissa Wakeley

Oh my, i have made this so many times, I’ve used different meats, beef, chicken, lamb, different soups, mushroom, chicken, veg, but kept to the basic principles, its the most loved pie, and ALL my guests have gone back for seconds. mmmm, mmmmm

Lee O’Brien

May 13, 2019

This recipe is 1 of my favorites now.
Didnt change a thing.
It was delicious! 😘


May 12, 2019

I have made this several times and LOVE it! This is one of my ‘dump bags’ so easy to do and ready whenever I need it.

Sue B

March 17, 2019

Easy to make and YUM!
Also used cream of mushroom soup instead of the cream of chicken


December 16, 2018

Amazing! I decided to top with mash and it was delicious, proper comfort food. I also mis-read the recipe and thought it said 1 and a half teaspoons of pepper but me and my husband loved the spice so I will make it again like this. Thanks for this recipe.

Anne Elsner

November 7, 2018

Awesome recipe. It doesn’t always make it to the pie. Hubby likes it with mash & veg.

Karen Davoren

October 22, 2018

Amazing. Better than bought pies. Whole family loved it. Needs a 10 star rating. Definitely be making it again

Jo Hardacre

October 18, 2018

This recipe is fabulous! My family love it. I sometimes put the mixture into taco boats, top with cheese and mashed potato to make a cottage pies. They are awesome!

It will add an unintended asparagus flavour to your pie but if you don’t mind that I don’t see why you couldn’t πŸ™‚


October 17, 2018

I thought I had condensed chicken soup but it is asparagus. Could I use that instead?


July 12, 2018

OMG!!! added kidney to this and cannot believe how rich and creamy … this is definitely my new way of cooking diced steak for casseroles etc

Dianne Waite

July 10, 2018

Made this last night great pies will make again πŸ‘


July 8, 2018

Omg this pie is melt in your mouth delicious

Stefanie Moore

July 7, 2018

We had this the other my hubby said it was better than any store bought pie and said we could make money from selling them πŸ˜‚ I used short crust pastry on the bottom and added mushrooms the recipe made 10 individual pies and had enough left over to make one big pie lovely recipe thanks


July 5, 2018

Beautiful recipe although little bit too salty but will cut back on Gravox maybe ? added kidney which my husband loves. Did need to cook pastry a little longer but overall lovely dish

Chrissy Craig

July 4, 2018

Easy to prepare and yummy to eat. Will leave out the stock cube next time. Just a bit too salty.


June 30, 2018

This pie filling is better than any store bought pie I’ve had!
After reading some of the other reviews, I increased the oven cooking time to 30 mins to make sure the pastry was cooked through.
Will definitely be making this again πŸ™‚


June 27, 2018

Delicious. Perfect pie for a cold winters night. Family scored it 8/10 saying it would’ve got 10/10 if it had been less salty so may reduce the gravy granules and use cornflour to thicken next time.

Sue Collins

June 26, 2018

Made this on the weekend. I used the filling as a casserole and added carrots, corn and peas.
It is absolutely delicious. Thoroughly recommend this recipe it is really, reallly good

Tammy Noble

June 26, 2018

A solid favourite in our house! We add a punnet of mushrooms, sliced, to it as well. I often do the filling one day, fridge it, then make pies with it the next day – awesome flavour! I have also cooked it with 1/2 a kilo of mince added to the steak – adds a beautiful depth to it – YUM!!

Cassie greco

June 21, 2018

This pie is the most amazeballs pie I have ever eaten, sometimes I also add bacon before I put in the oven I fry off diced bacon and I also sometimes add mashed potato to put on top of mixture then the pastry on top before I put in oven πŸ™‚ just overall an awesome recipe ❀️❀️


June 19, 2018

Voted the best pie ever by my family πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•

Wendy Bartonek

June 19, 2018

This pie is the best. My hubby reckons they are better than the ones bought from the best bakeries. I make the pies using the pie tins bought from Kmart $3 for 4 and serve with mashed potato and veggies.

Sally C

June 5, 2018

Lovely filling! Used it to make lots of little pies in pie maker.
I tried shortcrust pastry on the bottom but it was too sweet

Daniel Bell

May 21, 2018

Add a smoked ham hock to kick up the flavour level 100%

Samantha Cooper

April 19, 2018

This was just amazing. I made the filling the day before and made pie the next night as i got home too late. My partner love it. Partner wants to have it with rice next 😊

Isobel Macfarlane

April 6, 2018

I didn’t put puff pastry in bottom of pie only on top as I also don’t like soggy pastry

Rhonda Rolfe

April 5, 2018

Going to try this tonight. Puff or flaky pastry on base of a pie will usually remain soggy due to the extra butter in it so going to use short crust on base instead and puff on top.

Haylee Bennett

Absolutely loved it i did it in pressure cooker instead much quicker when u get home from work. I also added peas carrot and corn to mine. Probably the best pie ive had in years. Family loved it and a great way to get the kids enjoying their vegies. Next time going to try with potato on top. YUMMY 😊


December 2, 2017

Hi Ladies, the pie was delicious unfortunately the bottom was not cooked through, still very doughy. What have I done wrong πŸ˜”


April 29, 2017

Love this recipe I add mushrooms with mine. I also only cook for 5 an a half hours in my slowcooker

Tracey Reid

April 28, 2017

Absolute winner in my house, my 3 year old loves it! I added a handful of button mushrooms the second time and yummy!!

Kellie Wilkie

January 29, 2017

As good as a bakery pie. I didn’t brown the meat, just threw all into the slow cooker and then into puff pastry that night, mine may have had 9 hrs but made no difference. Meat was just perfect. Made enough for 5 for dinner and lunch for 2 the next day (not in the pie, just leftover filling). Another great recipe to convert the family to slow cooking!

karissa paterson

October 28, 2016

am i the only one that finds the pastry isnt even close to being cooked after 20 minutes? hour later it was delicious


October 13, 2016

Delicious! I coated the meat in flour but didn’t brown and it still turned out great. Will add some mushrooms next time to try a different flavour.


September 26, 2016

Too salty for me, next time I’ll cut back on the gravy and thicken with cornflour. The meet was lovely and tender and I added mushroom which was nice. Might try more veg next time,

maree roberts

September 19, 2016

This looks amazing and i plan to make it this week – i do have a question, do you put the steak mixture into the pie hot straight out of the slow cooker or let it cool a bit first? thanks πŸ™‚


September 4, 2016

I’m trying to make this recipe within the next few days. My only worry is that because I’m only cooking for myself, am I able to put the left over filling in the fridge and just heat up on the days that I want to do the pie again ??

Christine Byrne

September 3, 2016

Delicious, I didn’t do the pastry, I put mashed potato & sprinkled cheese on top & put it in the oven for 20 minutes. Yummo It will be added to recipe collection, 10/10

Briana Newport

August 28, 2016

In response of the lady who asked – I use a condensed can of soup. It is most definitely not too thick, it’s perfect.

Best pie recipe, I add mushrooms and spinach. Sometimes peas, zucchini and carrots.

It’s popular with my partner and our toddler.

Isobel Macfarlane

August 1, 2016

I just use a normal can as would think you would need to add water or it will be to thick

sharon newick

August 1, 2016

Looking forward to making this. Is the can of soup a condensed can or a normal diluted one? Many thanks


July 13, 2016

A regular in our house and works really well as a dump bag (I coat meat in flour but don’t seal, and add soup on day of cooking, not to bag). I use mushroom soup and add mushrooms. Thanks for a fantastic recipe!


July 9, 2016

Super yummy, i add a handful of mushrooms

Abby Chipperfield

Jess Barentsen

July 5, 2016

Wow! So delicious and easy. Will be a regular in our house ?
Only thing I’d do differently is blind bake the base first, was a little doughy.


July 3, 2016

Just amazing

This pie will be a regular here. Simple and easy but most of all its delicious!


June 28, 2016

I made this last week. Put the slow cooker on, went to work. Home, ingredients into pastry, 30 minutes, dinner cooked. My 19 and 21 year old sons who do NOT like the same food both loved it. I have marked the page in my cook book with a 10/10. Try it, you won’t regret it.


June 27, 2016

Best beef pie filling I’ve made. Tender meat on thick and tasty sauce. Thanks I will be cooking this over and over again, my hubby and kids loved it.

Ann Davies

June 19, 2016

Loved it. I added a tablespoon of sriracha sauce and 2 big handfuls of mozzarella. I think next time I’ll go shortcrust just for the base and blind bake


June 19, 2016

Made this tonight..yummo!I used mushroom soup instead of chicken.


June 19, 2016

Made this tonite but used Mushroom soup and added cheese to topping before putting pastry top on. Was delicious!


June 19, 2016

The most delicious pie I have ever made and so very easy to make. A hit with the whole family.


June 18, 2016

Yummmm the best home made pie filling ever I used cream of mushroom soup added sliced mushrooms used half beef steak half mince (was all I had and really wanted to try the pie recipie) and extra pepper whole family enjoyed it and will definatley be a regular in our household


June 10, 2016

Absolutely delicious and super easy! I was nervous about not blind baking the pastry base first but it turned out just fine. I substituted the onion for leek (hubby can’t eat onion) and wow what a great addition. This will be a regular on our weekly dinner menu ??


June 8, 2016

Wow, this is delicious and so easy to make. The filling is lovely and thick, well worth cooking.

Kate Nolan

June 3, 2016

I’ve made this twice now and we all loved it! Even my fussy 4 year old son who eats noting. Will definitely be a regular in our house.


May 25, 2016

This pie was a big hit in our house I added diced bacon and also added grated cheese after cooking but before cooking in oven

Karen Stuckings

May 22, 2016

Wow this was so good. I used gravy beef and added chopped shortcut bacon 1/2 way through browning the meat. Before putting top on pie I also added some grated cheese. Will be making again

Rachael Eggins

May 16, 2016

The whole family enjoyed it!


May 6, 2016

Katherine barron

April 27, 2016

Absolutely amazing. Only pie recipe I ever use now


April 26, 2016

I’m not a fan of cream of anything tinned soup. I love a good ho,Meade pie, a slow cooked homemade pie even better. Could you suggest an alternative to this ingredient? Or would it just not be the same? Thanks.


April 25, 2016

20/10!!!! Absolutely delicious. Needed to thicken with a little cornflour but other than that it was spectacular!!! Will most certainly be making again…..and again……and again…..and again.


April 17, 2016

This pie was AMAZING!!! Huge hit, great flavour, easy to make, delicious. Definately a repeat for winter meals. Yummo


April 15, 2016

This is delicious and easy to make!!! Some times I change soup for cream of mushroom,
Also change things up with 1/2 mince half chuck steak.
I never brown my meat just chuck it all in.


April 14, 2016

Perfect! I will try adding Vegas next time as well but this recipe is amazing!


April 14, 2016

I made this the other night it was beautiful! The whole family loved it!

Kala wicks

So yummy and so easy. I added mushrooms as well and I think kidney would also work if you like it. Better than any restaurant pie


February 11, 2016

Wow! Family loved it! Makes plenty as well. Will certainly be doing this one again!

Sarah Collins

November 13, 2015

Delicious. Was done quicker than expected as my slow cooker runs hot so only took 6.5 hours on low. I added some peas and corn and made into small pies in the piemaker. My fiance and 14 month old loved it
