Notes about this recipe

    This pie has great potential, but missed the mark for me if cooking as the recipe reads. I did lots of adjustments to get the flavour nice and rich. I added double amounts of English mustard, marmite, Worcestershire sauce, and stock cubes. I also couldn't help but substitute 250ml red wine for 1 cup of water. I think if I make this again I would also add at least double the amount of flour to thicken it up...mine was very runny, more like a casserole than pie filling. Maybe that's how the Brits like their Mince & onion pies, but I don't. I cooked the filling for almost 2 hours to try and reduce the liquid. As I said, lots of potential, but needs some serious adjustments.
