    Shropshire pie Quality minced steak Large white onion finely chopped Quality beef stock Salt and pepper A little vegetable oil Gravy Thickener (Bisto or similar or cornflour) 200g Self raising flour 100g vegetable suet Water Pinch of salt Milk for brushing top of pastry peas / carrots can also be added to the pie Method First to make the pie filling, heat a little oil in a frying pan, quickly fry off the minced steak until browned , now add the onion, turn the heat down and cook until slightly softened. Now add enough beef stock to the pan, reduce heat and simmer for about 10 minutes or so, you can add herbs, tomato ketchup, etc to give more flavour to the gravy if you like. Once the minced steak is cooked, thicken the gravy via your preferred method. Set to one side to cool, before filling your pie dishes. On to the pastry, mix in a large bowl the flour, salt and suet with a knife, adding just enough water to create a slightly sticky dough. Tip out onto a floured surface and roll out to desired thickness , top your pies and trim the pastry accordingly Cut a small slit in the pastry top and brush the pie crust with a little milk Bake in a pre heated oven at 180c for about 30 minutes until the pie crust is golden and the gravy is bubbling up the sides of the pie
  5. Back on topic please. If you want to discuss the specifics of brexit there is a thread for that.

  7. Superintendent Paul McCurry has issued a fresh appeal for information about the whereabouts of 16-year-old Pamela Horvathova, as today marks one month since the last confirmed sighting of Pamela on CCTV. “Pamela left Sheffield College on Granville Road on 18 December just after 2.05pm,” Supt McCurry explains. “What we now understand is that Pamela left the College and went into the city centre, so we’d like to hear from anyone who may hold dashcam footage and was travelling past the campus at this time, who may have caught Pamela on their camera. “I’m also keen to hear from anyone who may have seen Pamela in the city centre – from the CCTV, we can see she was wearing a dark hooded jacket, blue jeans and had her hair tied up in a bun on top of her head.” Today (Friday 18 January) Supt McCurry spoke to media outlets outside Sheffield College as part of a joint appeal for information with Sheffield College Chief Executive and Principal Angela Foulkes. She said: “We are extremely concerned about Pamela and are working closely with South Yorkshire Police to appeal for her safe return. “I want to urge anyone with any information to contact the police. Pamela, if you see this appeal, we want you to know that we are very worried about you and are here to support you. Please get in touch with the police straight away. “We have a large student and staff community based across the city, and this is a highly unusual incident. We have issued email, social media and poster appeals to staff and students asking for their help with any information that could lead to Pamela’s safe return. “We also want to appeal to the wider public. If you have any information, no matter how small or insignificant it may seem, please call the police now on 101. If you see Pamela, please call 999 straight away.” Supt McCurry added: “I’m incredibly grateful for the support shown by Sheffield College, our communities around Sheffield, the media and the wider public of South Yorkshire. Thank you for continuing to share our appeals – please keep doing so. “We’re all working together to find Pamela and make sure she is safe and well.” If you have any information that could help the investigation, please call 101 quoting incident number 941 of 24 December 2018. If you see Pamela, please call 999 immediately. https://www.southyorks.police.uk/find-out/news/2019/january-2019/fresh-appeal-for-information-about-pamela-horvathova/
  8. As this is now completely unwieldy there is a new thread here
  9. As the previous thread was running to 700 pages it's time for a new thread. Let me make this perfectly clear - any personal attacks will get you a suspension. The moderating team is not going to continually issue warnings. If you cannot remain civil and post within forum rules then do not bother to contribute.
  10. If anybody wishes to take part in the survey the link is above. Closing

    Being called sweetheart and petal.

    If you cannot remain civil then I strongly suggest you do not post.
  12. Closed as you seem unable to stay on topic or civil.

    Insulting fellow posters.

    If you see posts that break our rules then report them. If you have an issue with another user then put them on the ignore list. Generally we find that an argument takes two and that can result in both accounts being suspended. Closing.
  14. Because it isn't entirely about education is it? It's about learning what you can and can't do, what you're allowed to do. It's about being barred from aspiring to be who you are. It's interesting that men - who mostly benefit from this imbalance - are the most vociferous deniers of it isn't it?
  15. By the time you're 'old enough' to choose those choices have already been severely limited. Especially for girls.
