1lb potatoes peeled cut into chunks and boiled till soft in salted water

a good tsp butter and salt n pepper and some milk

i added some ground cloves, just 1/4 tsp if that, you want a hint of this, and also i added nutmeg...

Allow this to cool

Make Pastry!

if you have bought ready made simply follow pk instructions

if not....

you will need...

8 oz plain flour

2oz trex vegetable shortening

2oz stork margarine

1 tsp salt

water

beaten egg

Directions

1peel and chop potatoes the pop in pan to boil, just to the tender point drain and mash slightly, you want chunks or lumpy mash.

2In a pan boil the onions in milk, just enough to cover them, add pepper, i used black pepper, but white is ok too

3once onions are soft set aside

4meanwhile try to open the corned beef tin without cutting your fingers( these tins are lethal) then slice the beef and then cut into chunks

5pop into the onions and mix through,

6mix onion, beef and potatoes together, season with Hendersons salt and pepper, at this stage you can add a little twist,

7i added some ground cloves, just 1/4 tsp if that, you want a hint of this, and also i added nutmeg...

8Allow this to cool

9Make pastry...

10pre heat oven to gas 5

11weigh out flour, and sieve into bowl add salt

12weigh out fats cut small and add to flour

13using knife cut fat into flour then get in there with your hands and rub gently till it looks like breadcrumbs.. dont worry it doesn't all have to be fine...

14now run the cold water tap, and fill a cup, glass ect,

15add i tablespoon to start with and bring it together, adding a bit more each time you want a firm dough not to wet, you should be able to take it out and have clean ish hands. kneed till smooth about 30 secs to 1 min and shape into a ball...

16now set that aside for 30 mins....

17cut dough up you want 3/4 for the bottom of the dish and 1/4 for the top

18scatter a bit of flour over work top and place 3/4 dough on and roll out to fit dish, with overlaps, now live dish, with some grease-paper screw that up unravel and cover pastry then add dried beans ect and blind bake for 15 mins,

19once done allow to cool the add filling, set aside and roll out top, this should just overlap, beat egg well and dab around rim, place lid on and using a

20fork press together, brush top with remaining egg and bake 20 mins,

dont be afraid to add salt to the potatoes, and once you have mixed it all together taste. add more salt or hendersons if you wish.

All food is diet friendly, just consume in moderation. And if possible do a little exercise.

Brought back fond memories. Our sister Linda used to make this when family were going on picnics. She used grated potato and grated carrots.

I saw this was by someone called Adele, and my brain immediately sang “corned beef onion & potato pie” to the tune of “hello from the other side”.

It’s similar to Worcestershire sauce but has no anchovies . It’s made in Sheffield and is more popular/well known in the north of the country
