Freezing and defrosting guidelines
In order to enjoy optimum flavour and quality, frozen items are best used within 3 months of their freezing date. For more tips on freezing and defrosting food, read our article Love Your Freezer.
Make ahead: Make the beef casserole, then cool and freeze for up to 1 month, or assemble the pie without baking, cover in clingfilm and kitchen foil, then freeze for up to 1 month. Cook straight from frozen, adding an extra 15-20 mins onto the cooking time and covering the pastry with tin foil once golden. You can also assemble the pie 24 hours in advance, cover in clingfilm and chill until ready to bake.
