Welsh Beef Steak and Kidney Pie


  1. Preheat oven to Gas 4, 180°C, 350°F.
  2. Heat the oil in a large ovenproof pan or casserole pot. Add the Welsh Beef cubes and brown on all sides. Add the leeks and garlic, continue to cook for 1-2 minutes. Add the flour and stir well.
  3. Add the stock, thyme and kidneys. Bring to boil. Place the lid on the pot and place in the oven. Cook for 2 hours until the meat is tender.
