Water buffalo are now farmed in the UK. Their meat makes a delicious alternative to beef: it’s lean and cooks to a lovely tenderness, with a rich flavour. If you can’t get hold of buffalo, you can use good stewing beef such as braising or chuck steak (simmer it for about twice as long before putting in the pie).
Equipment: You will need a 1.5 litre/2½ pint pie dish and a pie funnel.
