we were really looking forward to this as our main meal of the day - what a disappointment - hardly any meat in it at all - thought hang on a minute - the picture on the box shows loads of chunky steak pieces - between the two of us we found about 6 pieces of meat - and gave a cheer each time - would never buy another one - waste of money - and if you cannot fill it with chunks of steak - don't advertise it as such - I would suggest that you take this product of the market until you can get...

This is the second McDougalls Deep Filled Steak pie we have had. The same result both times "Wheres the Meat" is what we all keep saying. More juice than the non-existent meat. Please sort yourselves out McDougalls. It should be what it says on the box DEEP FILLED STEAK PIE. Would not buy another one and would not recommend it either. (read more)

Might as well have been a vegetarian pie with the amount of meat it contained. This is a disgrace!!! I am not getting what I have paid for! (And there not cheap either). I advise people not to buy this product. I feel totally ripped off and very hungry now. (read more)

My son had a McDougalls Upper Crust steak & peppered sauce pie this evening and it was a mass of gravy on his plate with a few tiny bits of meat in a pastry case. It looked just like runny dog or cat food in a pie, nothing like the photo on the box. 'Flavoursome pies filled with prime steak in a rich and creamy peppered sauce' This is totally misleading and I will not be buying this pie ever again. (read more)

This is hilarious.Recently bought my mother a laptop,and today was showing how anything at all could be Googled. Suggested we looked for something topical, and we had just been talking about some awful McDougall pies she had bought from Morrisons and eaten this week, so I googled McDougall pies and found this page. The comments are exactly what we had been saying. Luckily she has kept the packaging. I am going top this back to Morrisons for a refund - and I might also print off some of the... (read more)

Bought 2 Steak and peppered gravy pies for my husband and daughter. They looked and smelt promising whilst cooking. When cut into, all there was was gravy! My husband had NO MEAT at all in his pie and my daughter had two of the smallest pieces imaginable. I will write a letter of complaint to McDougalls and see what they have to say. The pastry and the gravy were very tasty. Pity about the content. They could have been delicious! (read more)

I bought 4 steak and pepper sauce pies at Morrisons. I never buy pies, always make my own. When I cooked the pies I was expecting to find big chunks of prime steak inside as per picture on the box, however there was about 4 tiny pieces of meat and tons of disgusting sauce, which tasted like nothing. What a waste of money, and it is disappointing that any decent supermarket should sell such rubbish. (read more)

This is the second time we have tried these pies now and I am so disappointed that I will never have them again, the meat content in the whole pie was 1 piece of meat measuring 2 centimetres by 1 centimetre, the rest was sauce, these steak and pepper pies are a lie and the makers ( macdougles ) should be sued for it. Never ever again will I give them my hard earned money, it's a disgrace (read more)

Bought from Waitrose, so I expected some quality standard. First disappointment was to find that the chicken had been sourced from Thailand, so hardly reared with care. The 'sauce' overflowed onto the baking tray, the pastry was dry and inedible, filling minimal and tasteless - a few small cubes of chicken and a trace of asparagus. What a waste of money - will never buy another McDougalls' pie. One from a stall round the back of the Odeon would have been better quality. There is... (read more)

Sometimes in your a life a pie comes along that actually changes your life. Mcdougalls Uppercrust pies are such a pie. Now i have eaten pies from coast to coast with taters and toast but never has a pie excited my tastebuds with wild unrelenting bursts of orgasmic flavour. Get in me belly !! I'd like to take this opportunity to thank the good people at Mcdougalls for bringing this culinary gift to my life and at a price that hard to beat it wont hurt the coffers either. 5 stars just aint...

Bought two pies and they looked great when they came out the oven. Served them to my family and they ended up in the bucket soon afterwards. Full of gristle and sinew, tasteless and even the crust was bland. £7 odd wasted. Never again!!!!!!! Looks like they're no longer made by McDougall's as their logo is now missing from the box. "UpperCrust" seems to be the 'brand' name now. (read more)

WHAT HAVE THEY DONE????!!!! MacDougalls pies used to be good but the one we had last night was downright disgusting. I would go to say that it would fall foul of the trade description act. Between my husband and I we had two very small 1cm cubes of steak, and I use that term lightly, between us. On the ingredients it says Beef 23% but this was laughable. Definately won't buy these again. (read more)

I'd never tried McDougalls pies until today when i bought a Deep Filled Steak Pie for the family tea. Never again, whatever the gristly lumps of grey meat was, it certainly wasn't beef, i shudder to think what fell creature surrendered it's life to provide the gristle for this sad offering. I doubt the creature even had the mercy of a humane killing and i suspect it's being kicked to death by a group of navvies found outside the factory gates contributed to it's toughness. (read more)

As I haven't purchased one of the deep steak pies in a long while, I thought I'd give them a go as they were on offer. I wish I hadn't!!!!!! They are so tasteless and the steak is like rubber. The pastry was uncooked on the base and really soggy. The gravy was bland (could go an OXO) making the whole pie a total disaster.

WRONG DESCRIPTION OF THE PIE MISLEADING.

I recently purchased McDougalls Uppercrust - 2 Deep filled Steak & Peppered Sauce pies from a local Co-op Supermarket. The contents of these pies compared with the photo shown on the box equates to misrepresentation.
The pies contained only sauce and no more than three small pieces of
meat - possibly beef.
I have always assumed that McDougalls products are reputable and reliable,
however, I will certainly not purchase any McDougalls make of produce in the future.

Lovely tasting pies, nice gravy, no gristle or other nonsense that others here have stated ( I reckon they must be talking about a different brand...) pastry just right too. All in all if you like a nice & tasty mince pie they you can't go wrong with these ones.
Only complaint is not enough filling, for that money they could do with a wee bit more filling. (read more)

My Wife and I have just had a Mcdougalls upper crust steak and gravy pie. I can safely say I have never tasted anything quite like it. The filling is completely tasteless. Tasteless gravy with chunks of tasteless (and a little chewy) meat. Never written a review before, but never eaten anything that tastes of.....nothing! Quite Remarkable.
Complete filth I wouldn't feed my dog.

Bought the minced beef and onion pies from tesco and was very disappointed! The filling inside was nothing but fat and horrible rubbery bits.
