I love steak and kidney and it features often on the menu.

Was walking through ALDI and they had a high pile of Fray Bentos tinned steak and kidney pies as part of last weeks special buys so thought I would give one a try.

Maggie turned her nose up initially and when I opened the tin (second photo) I too was a little sceptical.

However after 30 minutes in a hot oven it actually looked quite nice so I served it up with mash and sprouts for quite an easy dinner.

Somewhere in the back of my mind I recall in my childhood Fray Bentos steak and kidney puddings but not the taste.

Going down to Aldi in the morning to see if my local has them.  Looks good after cooking.

We don't have a ALDI up here but I found them on Woolworths on line for $7.50 normal price. Is it tinned or is it a refrigerated item?

Got me stuffed why you blokes are so hyped up over a pie in a tin.
You are all quite capable of cooking a pie you put together yourself that would look and taste a lot better than this canned stuff. Smiley

I would say convenience, but if you see me using a can opener one handed you would forget the convenience factor.
The only can I can manage easily is one with xxxx on it. Smiley

Yep, convenience.

Would take me two and a half hours to slow cook a good steak and kidney and then another fifty minutes for the pie.

Lid off the tin and thirty five minutes to cook it  Cheesy

I think they should pay me for all the spruiking I do about them but Woolworths have these now.

Usually on the shelf below all the spam.  Another favourite of mine that I can’t get Maggie to eat  Grin
