Beef Cobbler image from www.walkaboutcrafts.com


575 g (1 ¼ lb) stewing or braising steak, cut into cubes

25 g (1 oz) plain flour

1 teaspoon dried mixed herbs

salt and pepper

1 onion, chopped

3 tablespoons oil

100 g (4 oz) baby carrots

2 parsnips, quartered and sliced

600 ml (1 pint) beef stock

100 g (4 oz) frozen peas

For the topping:

225 g (8 oz) self- raising flour

pinch of salt

50 g (2 oz) butter or margarine

1 egg, beaten plus extra to glaze

3 tablespoons milk


1. Toss the meat in a mixture of the flour, herbs and seasoning. Cook in the oil until browned. Transfer to a casserole. 

2. Cook the onion in the oil until soft and add to the casserole with the carrots, parsnips and beef stock. Season to taste. Cover and cook in a moderate oven for 2 hours until the meat is cooked. Stir in the peas.

3. Sift the flour and salt into a bowl, rub in the fat until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. 

4. Stir in the beaten egg and enough milk to make a soft dough. Roll out on a lightly floured work surface to about 2.5cm/1 in thick. Cut into rounds using a 5 cm/2 in scone cutter.

5. Place the cobblers on top of the meat in the casserole, increase the oven heat and bake for 15 minutes.
