- Preheat the oven to 200°c or 180°c fan forced.
- Mix the pork & gravy together – don’t heat up the filling as the pies cook better with cold filling
- Put the filling in a ramekin with a puff pastry lid or in a pie tin with your choice of puff pastry lid with or without shortcrust pastry base.
Alternatively, if you have a pie maker, use shortcrust pastry for the base & puff pastry for the lid with a 1/4 cup of filling per pie, cook as per pie makers instructions
