  2. In a thick bottom pan sweat the onion, garlic and the mushrooms with the berries, thyme and bay. Add the red wine and reduce. Add the ale and stir in, then the Essential Cuisine Signature Beef Jus, water, jelly and mustard. Braise for 3-4 hours until soft. Chill until needed.

  3. For the paste melt the fats in the water then bring to the boil
    Sieve the flour and salt together. Add the egg and fold in
    Pour in the hot water and quickly mix with a palette knife, folding it with your hands when it starts to come together. Be careful not to overwork. Wrap in clingfilm and rest until cold.

  4. When ready roll out the pastry to about 1cm thick. Line pie tin, pushing into the corners.

  5. Fill to the top with the pie filling and cover with the rest of the pastry, ensuring you pinch the tops together to create a seal. Brush with egg wash and rest in the fridge for 1 hour.

  6. Preheat oven to 170C. brush the pie with egg wash again before putting in the oven. Bake for about 1 hour or until the pastry looks a dark golden brown and feels hard to the touch.
