Boxes and ingredients are packed in facilities that handles Peanut, Nuts, Sesame, Fish, Crustaceans, Milk, Egg, Mustard, Celery, Soya, Gluten and Sulphites. Due to the war in Ukraine, it has been necessary to substitute sunflower oil with rapeseed oil in some products without a label change. The FSA have advised that allergic reactions to rapeseed oil are rare.

Preheat your oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 9. Remove the puff pastry from your fridge and allow to come up to room temperature.
Pop the garlic (unpeeled) into a small piece of foil with a drizzle of oil and scrunch to enclose it. Roast the parcel on a baking tray until soft, 10-12 mins.
Meanwhile, bring a large saucepan of water with 0.5 tsp salt to the boil for the potatoes.
In the meantime, halve, peel, and thinly slice the onion.
Heat another large saucepan with a tight-fitting lid on medium-high heat. Add the onion to the pan and stir-fry until softened, 4-5 mins.
Meanwhile, chop the potatoes into 2cm chunks (peel first if you prefer). Trim the green beans.
Once the onions are tender, add the beef along with the juices from the packet. Simmer on low with the lid on until tender enough to shred with a fork, 10-15 mins.
In the meantime, when the water is boiling, add the potatoes to the water and cook until you can easily slip a knife through, 15-20 mins.
Once the beef is tender, remove the lid and shred the beef with two forks. Stir through the teriyaki sauce, season with salt and pepper. Add a splash of water if you feel it needs it. Remove from the heat. IMPORTANT: Ensure the beef is piping hot throughout. Add a splash of water if you feel it needs it.
Transfer the beef mixture into an appropriately sized baking dish. Wipe out the pan for later.
Cover with the pastry (see ingredients for amount), pressing it over the side of the dish or just sitting it on top, then trimming off any excess.
Make a small hole in the middle to allow steam to escape. TIP: Brush the pastry with a little milk if you have some.
Bake your pie on the top shelf of your oven until golden brown, 15-20 mins. Once it's out of the oven, allow the pie to stand for 2 mins.
Meanwhile, once the garlic has cooled, cut the end with scissors, squeeze it out of the skin and mash with a fork.
Once the potatoes are cooked, drain in a colander and return to the pan with the roasted garlic, off the heat. Add a knob of butter and a splash of milk (if you have any) and mash until smooth. Season with salt and pepper. Cover with a lid to keep warm.
Heat a drizzle of oil in the (now empty) pan on medium-high heat.
Once the pan is hot, add the green beans and stir-fry until starting to char, 2-3 mins. Then turn the heat down to medium and cook for 1 min. Add a splash of water and immediately cover with a lid or some foil.
Cook until the beans are tender, 4-5 mins.
Remove the pan from the heat and stir through roasted sesame seeds. Toss to coat.
Share your pie portions between your serving plates.
Serve with your roasted garlic mash and sesame green beans alongside.
