Steak And Kidney Pie, Any Fans?

Tue Feb 08, 2005 12:49 am

Following 707cmf's dimwit suggestion, I once bought a steak-and-kidney pie.
Beuuarrggghhh ! You really have to be a Brit to enjoy this dish  Big grin
Any fans of that thingy out there ?

The thing is disgusting. I told UTA that I had never eaten the thing while leaving in the UK, he took this as a clue to buy some.

Disgusting if you ask me.

On the other hand, a Chicken and Mushroom pie is delicious.

Cheers,

Now when you say pie....are you talking like a quiche or a pizza? Please explain that to me...and the first suggestion sounds disgusting, however the latter sounds great.

XJRamper... they're talking about pot pies.

Well, the chicken and mushroom pie I refer to does not contain magic mushrooms.

Cheers,

Steak and kidney pie, when prepared and cooked correctly, is one of the World's great culinary masterpieces. Even better though, is steak and kidney pudding - made with a suet pastry dough. Simply delicious.

When one of my daughters was very young, she took great delight in telling me, when I arrived home from work, that we had snake and pygmy pie for dinner Big grin

Absolutely delicious!
Unless you make your own, they are very difficult to purchase in the U.S. The occasional English themed Pub may carry them though. I will make one every now and then. I remember when my Mom first gave me directions on how to cook kidneys, she said: "Just boil the piss out of 'em".

BTW, they must be lamb kidneys, not beef. The lamb are much more tasty.

Serve with Fava beans and a nice Chianti! (Couldn't resist)

Seriously though, they're good!
