Preparing The Steak

Dice the beefsteak, finely chop the onion or onions put them into a saucepan. chop each orf the sausages into three or four pieces and add them to the pan, sprinke some salt and pepper over the ingredients.
Add a beef stock cube to one and a half pints of boiling water and stir until the stock cube has dissolved. pour the stock into the pan with the ingredients and put the lid on cook on a low temperature for around 90 minutes.
once the ingredients are cooked, you need to thicken up the juices in the pan, I use a shop bought gravy powder for easiness add until you have a thick gravy.
Leave the ingredients to cool in the pan whilst you roll out the pastry.
The best method to roll your pastry to the correct size for your oven dish is to roll it out and keep placing the oven dish on to it until the pastry is the same size. (remember to sprinkle flour onto your worktop before rolling out your pastry.
Empty the pan into the oven dish, I couldn't find a suitably sized dish so I used the tray that came with the cooker.
Carefully place the pastry over the ingredients and cover the top of the oven dish, fold back the edge of the pastry slightly, to prevent the pastry sticking to the dish after cooking. Remember also to make a small hole in the centre of the pie to let the air escape during cooking.
