I love Pukka Pies, the uncooked varieties, certain
I love Pukka Pies, the uncooked varieties, certainly not this one, I placed it in our 800w microwave oven for the recommended time of 4 minutes, it was dry, no flavour, and suppose to contain gravy, I ask what gravy, I partly eat one of the two in the packet, and ditched the other.
I brought these pies because I am trying to cut back on electric. It is so handy you can microwave them. These pies are lovely they have plenty in the middle and nice a nice pastry.
Only buy these if you enjoy eating crunchy pastry with very limited filling!
I was expecting light crispy pastry, sorely disappointed, pastry was heavy and gooey underneath was very dry so gravy definitely needed the filling was very meagre just 3 small pieces in the centre with about a dessert spoon of gravy surrounded by thick heavy pastry, all in all a very tasteless pie had.
Totally disagree with last review; the pastry was light, crumbly and tasty. Fair amount of filling, though a tad more gravy would be good. Excellent standby to keep in freezer for when you fancy a nice hot pie quickly. Biggest problem is making sure I only have them occasionally!
My pet hate is microwaved pastry, it just turns to a rubbery goo. I was intrigued to see that Pukka seemed to think they'd formulated a pastry which works well in a microwave. In short - they haven't!
Pukka Pukka Pie!
Fair amount of chicken and shortcut pastry is very good - cooked by microwave and in the oven. I like a bit more gravy with mine so pour on a dash of Bisto.
Amazing pastry, so quick to cook in the microwave
The first time I bought these I was sceptical about the pastry, I put in the microwave for the required time and was amazed at how good the pastry was, the filling was plenty and tasty, these are a godsend for a quick and fulfilling addition to a meal and so quick to cook. Being of limited mobility I struggle cooking with my oven, so this are always in my freezer ready to eat as a snack or part of my main meal. Love them
