  • Sift the flour into a bowl with the salt and mustard powder. Rub in the fats with your fingertips until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Add 6-8 tbsp chilled water and bring the mixture together with a round bladed knife. Knead gently and wrap the dough in cling film and chill for 30 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, blend the packet mixture with the milk and simmer until thickened. Melt the butter in a saucepan and fry the mushrooms for 5 minutes. Add the mushrooms to the sauce with all of the buttery juices. Fold in the diced meat.

  • Pre-heat the oven to 180°C, 350°F, Gas Mark 4. Cut one third off the dough and roll the larger piece out on a floured surface and used to line a medium sized deep pie dish. Prick the pastry base and trim the edge with a knife. Re-roll the trimmings and cut 1cm wide strips. Brush the pastry rim with the milk and lay the strips on top. Brush the strip with a little more milk. Roll the remaining third of pastry to an oval large enough to cover the dish.

  • Spoon the meat mixture into the dish and lay the pastry over. Push the pastry edges together to seal and then lift the dish up and trim the pastry with a knife. Tap the pastry sides up with a knife and pinch the edges with your fingers to form a fluted edge. Brush with the remaining milk and make 2 slits in the pie surface. Bake on the middle shelf for 45 minutes. Serve.
