I love a pie but it’s not something you think you can have when you’re ‘on a diet’ so I was soo pleased when I realised with a couple of little tweaks I could make a reasonably low syn pie that was Slimming World friendly, especially when a steak bake from Greggs is 20 syns!This Slimming World Steak Pie is a little different as it has a pastry lid rather than fully encased in pastry but that’s good enough for me, I prefer the crispy pastry of the lid anyway. Plus it’s only 5 syns per serving, the pie serves four so the whole pie is less syns than a pasty!
You could even add kidney but it’s just steak for me, I’m really not a fan of kidney. We love this pie with mash or Slimming World friendly chips done in the oven with FryLight, just don’t forget to add any additional syns if you use make extra gravy for you mash or chips.
