You're quite right there.  The worst ones I found were from Morrisons.  The pastry was nice but what little there was of the filling was pretty awful.   I have found a couple of independent butchers who produce top quality pies.  Unfortunately they're not local to me, but when I'm in the vacinity, I drop in for a few pies.

Other times, we make a batch of pies at home and freeze them.    Steak & kidney,  Steak & Ale, Chicken & ham etc..  For the meat, I use "plate" which I slow cook for a couple of hours till it's falling apart.   Yummy.

The nicest steak and kidney pie I've ever had was a stupid tiny little cheap Birds Eye and it was yummy . I'm so fussy about meat and all the others I've tried had gristle in YUCKKKKKKK and no good making my own because my pastry would fail badly

I rarely cook, but I can make a tasty steak & kidney pie.  My mum's was one of my favourites as a kid, she was a great cook and baker.  I actually paid attention when she told me how to make them.


I cook the meat till its really tender, but don't bother making puff pastry. Like my mum, I think the ready made is just as good.
