Serves 4

4 lamb leg steaks, cut into chunks

1 teaspoon olive oil

1 large leek, finely sliced

150g mushrooms, cleaned and sliced

25g butter

30g plain flour

300ml hot chicken stock

150ml double cream

2 teaspoons Dijon mustard

100g baby spinach leaves

A small handful of freshly chopped chives

Salt and freshly milled black pepper

For the filo crust

6-8 sheets of fresh filo pastry

50g butter, melted

Extra chopped chives, to garnish

To serve

Seasonal salad leaves

  • Heat the oil in a medium shallow ovenproof casserole pot over medium-high and quickly fry the leeks until soft, then add mushrooms and cook for a few minutes until golden.
  • Add the lamb and continue to cook for 3 - 4 minutes until brown. Transfer to a plate and prepare the sauce.
  • Melt the butter in the same casserole pot. Whisk in flour and cook for 1 minute, then gradually add the hot stock, whisking continuously until smooth.
  • Stir in cream, mustard, spinach and chives. Season.
  • Return the lamb and vegetables to the casserole and mix well.
  • For the filo crust, preheat the oven to 200ºC, 180ºC fan, Gas Mark 6.
  • Unroll the filo pastry and cover with a clean, damp tea-towel.
  • Lay a single sheet of filo onto a chopping board and brush with a little melted butter. Roughly scrunch the pastry sheet and arrange on top of the pie.
  • Repeat until the pie is completely covered.
  • Bake in a hot oven for 20 minutes until golden and crisp, garnish with the chives and serve with the salad leaves.
