Neil keeps it classic with a stodgy steak and ale pie on Come Dine With Me Wakefield
Preheat the oven to 220°C/gas mark 7. Heat the oil in a frying pan and brown the beef. Add the onion, garlic and ale and simmer until tender.
Pour in the beef stock, butter and flour and stir until the sauce has thickened. Season to taste then place in a pie dish. Cover with puff pastry and brush with beaten egg.
Bake for 30-40 minutes then serve with seasonal vegetables.
