Steak and Wild Mushroom Pies

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Ppaperdoll

A fancy looking, but easy dish using pre-made gravy. Look for gourmet red-wine gravy, as this really enhances the flavour of the dish.

This was superb, I used a high quality gravy..and added some red wine to it. Easy to put together and delicious. One change i made was to put the filling in a small casserole dish then bake it with the puff pastry on the top.
