1 medium potato
Firstly, make your pastry by rubbing the fats into the flour and adding enough water to bind it (approx 6 tablespoons) Then let the pastry rest the fridge for 30 mins.
Roll out 2/3 of the pastry and line the tin. Roll out the remaining pastry into a lid slightly bigger than the tin.
Begin by putting a layer of onion and half the swede in the bottom. Season generously with salt and pepper, then add the beef, then season, finishing with the rest of the swed and the potato and again season.
The seasoning of each layer is very important.
Pop on the lid and put the pasty pie in the fridge for about 30 mins
Preheat the oven to 180 C/Gas 4/Fan 165, then brush the pie with beaten egg and cook for 1 hour.
