  5. Add mushrooms and garlic and stir, saute for 5 minutes
  6. Add red wine and reduce by half, stir well to combine and deglaze pot
  7. Return beef to pot and add tomatoes, worcestershire sauce and beef stock and stir well; cover and bring to boil
  8. Reduce heat to very low and simmer for up to 3 hours to reduce liquid by half
  9. Stir well to break up some of the beef, but leave some larger chunks (If gravy isn’t thick enough: mix corn starch with 1 tbsp of water to make a slurry, add to gravy and increase heat to high, stir well to combine until bubbling.)
  10. Remove pot from heat and allow to cool slightly then stir in butter and season with salt to taste
  11. Preheat oven to 190C

  15. Remove every second strip and flip horizontally, then weave with the other strips to make a lattice pattern and lightly brush with grapeseed oi.
  16. Fill pie base with pie filling and cover with lattice top, press down on edges and trim excess
  17. Bake in oven for 5-10 minutes, until top is cooked
