500 g cow lips (Inyama Yenhloko)

3 cups water

½ onion diced

2 ½ Rajah Mild & Spicy Curry Powder

1 tbsp Robertsons Steak and Chops Spice

1 tbsp Robertsons black peppercorn

1 cup beef stock (Knorr Beef Stock Pot, dissolved in hot water)

400 g ready-rolled puff pastry

1 egg yolk beaten

How to

  • Thoroughly rinse the cow lip meat in water, transfer into a large pot, add the water and boil for 30 minutes.
  • Remove the boiled cow lip meat from the pot and allow to cool, then cut into small chunks.
  • Add the onion, Rajah Mild & Spicy curry powder, Robertsons Steak & Chops Spice and Robertsons Black Peppercorns, and boil for 30 to 40 minutes.
  • Lower the heat, add a cup of beef stock and simmer on a medium heat for 40/60 minutes. The gravy must be thick, if not add 3 to 4 tablespoons of cake flour or corn starch for a thicker consistency.
  • Set aside to cool.
  • Heat the oven to 220°C
  • Pour the cow lip stew filling into a pie dish and brush the rim of the dish with some beaten egg yolk. Cover the dish with pastry and use a knife to trim and press the edges down against the side of the dish.
  • Brush the pie heavily with egg yolk. Make a few little slits in the centre of the pie and bake for 40 minutes until golden.
  • Leave to stand for a few minutes before serving.
