Surrey Lamb Pie
8 Small Lamb chops, trimmed
Seasoned flour, for dusting
1 oz Butter
2 Onions, sliced
2-3 Lambs kidneys, cored and sliced
Salt and black pepper
1 Sprig Fresh mint or rosemary
1/2 Lamb stock
8 oz Mushrooms, sliced
8 oz Shortcrust or puff pastry
Milk or beaten egg to glaze

Preheat the oven to 180 C / 350 F / Gas 4.
Dust the chops generously with seasoned flour. Heat the butter or oil in a frying pan and brown the chops on both sides.
Arrange the chops in a 2 pint pie dish and scatter the onions on top. Add the kidneys and season lightly. Add the sprig of mint or rosemary.
Pour the stock into the frying pan and heat through, stirring to take up the residue of flour, then pour sufficient over the pie filling just to cover.
Arrange the mushrooms in overlapping layers to cover the filling. Roll out the pastry and cover the pie, decorate with the trimmings.
Glaze with milk or beaten egg and cook for about 40 minutes or until the pastry is crisp and golden. Serve with mashed potatoes, carrots and a green vegetable.
