  • 1 sheet puff pastry
  • 1 pound ground beef (mince beef)
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 2 onions
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon oregano


  • Preheat the oven to 360 F / 180 C.
  • Dice the onion and garlic.
  • Heat up olive oil in a large pot or skillet on medium heat. Add ground beef, onion, garlic and seasoning, and sauté for a few minutes until the meat is browned.
  • Add beef broth, tomato paste and Worcestershire sauce. Stir to combine the ingredients thoroughly. Leave the pie filling to simmer for a few minutes to allow the liquid to reduce slightly.
  • Pour the pie filling into your pie dish.
  • Place a sheet of puff pastry over the pie. Trim the edges with a sharp knife or a pair of scissors. Use a fork to push the edges of the pastry onto the edge of the pie dish to seal the edges. Then, cut a hole into the middle of the pie.
  • Bake the pie for about 25 minutes, or until the pastry has puffed up and is golden.



  • Store leftover pie in a refrigerator for up to 3 days.
  • Feel free to add extra vegetables to the pie, like diced carrots, mushrooms or peas.
