This delicious handmade beef and ale pie from This Works Within is a deserved favourite of our in-store customers in our Berlin store. And rightly so – they’re super tasty! The recipe is the work of an expert piemaker who’s passionate about all things pastry.
If you’re looking for a quick and convenient meal, you can’t go wrong with one of these. Just bake this beef pie from frozen at 180ºC. After 35-45 minutes you’ll have a light, flaky golden puff pastry that’s ready to eat. You can tell when it’s ready simply by looking at the pie – it will rise a little and turn golden brown, then it’s good to go.
Although we refer to them as pies, our beef and ale pies are quite similar in shape and size to a pastie. Whatever you call them, we think you’ll agree they’re delicious. They’re ideal for eating on their own as a snack or a light lunch. However, we would recommend serving them up with a plate full of vegetables, potatoes, and of course some gravy!
Each pie is an individual portion, just the right size for one person.
Dalriata – making Germany fall in love with savoury pies
We’ve always found it a little strange that savoury pies, and especially meat pies, are so popular in many countries, yet little-known in Germany. They’re universally beloved not only in the UK and Ireland, but also – perhaps even especially – in New Zealand and Australia. In fact, many Kiwis would say the steak pie is the national dish of New Zealand. And in Australia, the pie floater is a cult favourite throughout the nation. At Dalriata, we might not be able to bring the pie cart to your door, but we can certainly send you delicious pies that are easy to prepare yourself, and we think that’s the next best thing.
