I made 4 individual pies in these cute little dishes. If you make one big one just use a casserole dish. The only thing you have to do to make this vegetarian if following any recipe is to switch out tvp ( rehydrated) or meatless ground beef from health food store in place of lamb or beef.
It’s such a simple dish and really you do not need to be exact. For years I have used the Colemans seasoning packet because there is a flavor in there I love and I still don’t quite know what it is. But, basically, you saute chopped onions, carrots, peas, ( I used broccoli and cauliflower), till veggies are tender then you add the veggie ground beef. Add worcestershire sauce, red wine, vegetable stock ,thyme, salt and pepper, maybe a dash of dry mustard, a bit of butter and a bit of flour and keep cooking till you have a nice gravy. The consistency is up to you ( we like it thick !)
