Don't bother with it.
It was awful! The pastry was thin and hard. The filling was utterly tasteless and the lid of the pie was not attached to the pie simply dreadful, Couldn't even recommend this pie to my dog. Complete of waste of money and electricty heating the oven.
Very disappointing compared to previous pies.
I agree with the other reviews here. Tesco pies used to be a real treat: great buttery pastry, plenty of good meat pieces and a rich full flavoured gravy. I'm sorry to say that isn't the case anymore. The pastry tastes of nothing, the meat pieces are very small, and the gravy tastes very watered down despite the good consitency - a good steak pie should have a rich beefy gravy, not just a hint of one! A real disappointment I'm sorry to say. Avoid until either reformulated back to a couple of years ago, or a new supplier is found.
Love this pie. Crisp pastry, lots of chunks of succulent meat and a rich gravy. No grisly bits of meat.
All pastry and no beef and no flavour
Bought this yesterday tasted.of nothing put in the bin
Awful. Barely any meat and no flavour. Horrible. Will never buy again and urge others not to.
Used to be a full and meaty pie
The filling tasted Lovely as it always used too, but there was not much filling and in a percentage ratio only about 35% was actual meat. In half a pie I got 4 pieces of beef. The pastry was thin too and very hard, we were disappointed. Would not buy again.
Cooking instructions need revision
Has all the ingredients for a good pie. However cooking instructions are disingenuous. Top crust of the pie burns quickly if instructions are followed, ruining the pie. I bought 2 of these and the first one burnt. Second one is in the oven at 140 degrees (60 lower than recommended) and top crust has browned and is blackening within 15mins (cooking time is 30mins). And it's not my oven! Regularly cook food in there as per guidelines with no problem.
Shame about the pastry...
The meat was ok but the pastry was just about inedible - for some reason it tasted sweet and really wan't very nice at all.
