Pepper Steak Pie Filling – Marsay Family Favourite

AN EASY TO FOLLOW RECIPE, THIS PEPPER STEAK PIE FILLING IS PERFECT FOR PIES, OR AS ANY SAVOURY FILLING AND JUST AS GOOD AS A PIZZA TOPPING.

So every year, about this time, there is a frenzied hype as Muslims across the World begin their Ramadaan Preparations.  Busy are many folks, as they do a proper spring clean-up at home, as well as finding time, ensuring their freezers are well stocked with family favourite meals, and/or savouries, that can be frozen and used during Ramadaan. Don’t believe me??? Just have a peak at all the social media platforms, which are jammed packed with delightful and yummy savouries. 

This year, Like all other years, I am one of those, THAT NEVER STRESS ABOUT PREPPING AN ARRAY OF SAVOURIES/MEALS FOR RAMADAAN.  Like I have mentioned on numerous occasions before, with just two of us at my table for Iftaar, It doesn’t make sense that I get all flustered over stocking my freezers.  On days that I need to prepare a starter or iftaar, I do so on the day I need them, or a few days before, most often keeping away a few extras to be used for another busy day.  

Last year, I shared with you my readers, a STEAK FILLING  recipe for savouries, which you all loved and shared some fantastic feedbacks with me, THANK YOU!!!. So this year, I share another of My family favourite, PEPPER STEAK.  another one of those that stayed with me since in food research days, whilst I played around with flavours for pies.  Pepper Steak Pie Filling, is also my personal favourite, and having it crammed into a flaky pastry shell, or even a shortcrust pastry, makes this ever so delicious.  

I do hope this also get added to your family’s favourite list, and I look forward to all your feedbacks on my various social media platforms.

NOTES BY FOODEVA MARSAY

> Add in Potatoes, chopped into cubes (during cooking stage), or mushrooms and peppers, for a varied filling option .

> The Amount of Black Pepper Powder may be adjusted to suit your family’s preference.

> You can substitute the milk, for half cream/half milk, or All cream.  OR use Water instead of milk or cream, if your diet requires.

> Instead of the Powdered Soup used as a gravy thickener, you could make up a peppered sauce, using my Master White Sauce  recipe., together with black pepper powder. OR simply use Corn Starch. 

> Lean Steak is what I prefer, but you can use any cuts of steak with a little more fat content on it.

>  Try this recipe, as a meal, simply cut the steaks into larger portion sizes, and serve with a salad or starch of choice.
