Monsters Steak Pie

This is a pie I make for my family, its my oldest son's favourite meal and asks for it every day :)
1 Roll puff pastry
500g steak (I use cubed stewing steak cut into small pieces)
1 Small onion
1 small sweet potato, cut into small cubes
Quarter cup peas
1 large carrot, sliced
1 packed brown onion soup
Half cup water
1 Egg beaten

Half cup fruit chutney
Half cup coke
Quarter cup tomato sauce
Teaspoon dried sweet basil
Teaspoon dried parsley
Salt and pepper

Mix all the marinate ingredients and coat the meat, let it rest in an airtight container over night for best results, I make mine in the morning and use it that evening.

Preheat oven to 180*C

Roll out puff pastry and line the bottom of a greased oven proof dish. Leave enough pastry to use as a cover once the meat mixture is added.

Saute onions till translucent

Add meat and cook till halfway done

Add vegetables, brown onion soup and water and simmer till the sweet potato starts so soften, but not cooked through

Spoon the mixture into the pastry lined dished and cover with remaining pastry, seal the edges and prick with a fork to allow excess steam to escape

Brush the egg onto the pastry "lid"

Bake for 1 hour
