300g beef fillet, cut in medallions

2 tbsp plain flour for dusting meat and mushrooms

2 chorizo sausages, thinly sliced

250g button mushrooms

2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

2 brown onion, diced

2 sticks celery, diced

2 carrots, diced

1 jar passata (700g)

250ml chicken stock

2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce

1/3 bunch thyme, leaves only

2 sweet potatoes, peeled and small dice

25g butter

50ml double cream or milk

Salt & pepper to season


1Dust the meat and mushrooms with flour and season with salt and pepper.

2In a large oven proof pan, sear the beef in olive oil until golden brown. Be careful not to burn the flour. Set beef aside.

3In the same pan, brown the button mushrooms in the olive oil for about 5 minutes, then add the chorizo, onion, leek, celery and carrots and cook until soft. Add the passata, chicken stock, Worcestershire sauce and thyme. Mix well and bring to a simmer for 8 minutes.

4Meanwhile, boil the sweet potato in a separate pot, until soft. Strain and return to the same pot on a low heat. When back on the stove top, mash the sweet potato with butter and cream using a potato masher or a whisk.

5To finish the pie, stir the beef through the saucy mixture. Cover with the sweet potato mash using a spatula. Scrape the surface with a fork to create small peaks.

6Place in the oven, on grill, for 10 min till caramelised.
