What kind of meat is used in traditional steak pie recipe?

I use the round steak or kabob steak bites to produce a tender and delicious steak pie filling made in the slow cooker. You could also use chuck steak, sirloin steak, or even beef roast. I would suggest using a cheaper cut of beef for this recipe because when cooked in the slow cooker it will become very tender and flavorful.

Keeping this recipe true to it's roots in Scotland, it is best to keep it simple and traditional. You will sometimes find recipes that call for sausage to be added along with the steak. Sausage is the perfect addition to the steak filling for added flavor and heartiness.
