Steak Bake

Steak Bake Recipe

I love love a Greggs Steakbake. That’s why I’ve create a Steak Bake Recipe. One of the best things about the British baker is their signature steak bakes. However, it’s a bit of a roulette at times in whether you’re going to get one at the right temperature.

Sometimes it’s baking hot, and as the pastry is so inviting on these little beauties, it’s very easy to get sucked in and go for a bite, and then still regretting it 3 days later feeling the skin on the roof of your mouth peeling away.

And then on the other hand, you’ll sometimes get a stone cold steak bake. There’s nothing worse (to me anyway) than the taste of cold beef steak and gravy. I can imagine that’s what dog food tastes like.

I could easily do two Steak Bakes in a sitting. Or sometimes I alternate and
have a sausage roll chaser. This recipe creates 3, or 2 giant ones.

I’ve tried on a handful of times to master this icon of British cuisine, however it’s pretty tough to get the same comfort zone feeling of the Greggs world renowned masterpiece. Disclaimer – If served at the correct temperature.

Ingredients:

  • 400g Diced steak
  • 1 Sheet of pre-rolled puff pastry
  • 1 Egg
  • Drop of milk
  • 1 x tsp Dried thyme
  • Onion
  • Beef gravy granules
  • 200ml water
  • Garlic
  • Salt
  • Pepper

Method:

  1. Preheat the oven to 200C/390F and remove puff pastry from fridge.
  2. Brown the diced meat in a pan, on a medium heat. When browned, transfer to a plate.
  3. Add chopped onions to the pan, stirring regularly until cooked and soft. about 5-7 mins.
  4. Add garlic and cook for a further couple of minutes adding a good seasoning of salt and pepper.
  5. Add beef stock, and thicken with a good 3 or 4 tablespoons of beef gravy granules.
  6. Add the beef gravy mix to a blender, and blend until fairly smooth.
  7. Add beef and blended mix together and season further with a pinch of pepper and thicken until desired texture.
  8. Unroll puff pastry and cut into 6 equal sections (4 for a giant steak bake).
  9. Lightly dab your finger in a small bowl of water, and rub around the perimeters of the pastry to help it stick.
  10. Spoon the mixture into the middle of two pastries and layer two further pieces of pastry on each, and push down the edges with the back of a fork.
  11. Mix the egg and drop of milk in a small bowl, and brush the steak bakes with the mix all over, and score lines diagonally from top to bottom
  12. Place in the oven for around 20 minutes depending on the size, but do monitor and turn regularly to ensure they are cooking evenly.

Enjoy!
