- Place the diced lamb in a plastic bag with the seasoned flour and shake so the meat is coated well.
- Heat a large frying pan until very hot, add the oil and butter then fry the lamb and onion until all the pieces of lamb are browned. Transfer to a casserole dish and set aside.
- Add the red wine and stock to the pan, bring to the boil, add the garlic, rosemary, Worcestershire sauce, mustard and redcurrant jelly. Stir well. Add a little seasoning and transfer to the casserole dish.
- Stir all of the ingredients together, cover and cook for an hour until just tender (if using a slow cooker, cook for about 7 hours).
- Meanwhile prepare the pastry lids. On a floured surface, roll the pastry to a thickness of 1cm (1/2in) and cut out the individual pie dish shape, place on a greased baking sheet, brush with the beaten egg to glaze. Preheat oven to 180°C/160°F/Gas Mark 4. Bake for 10-15 mins or until the pastry has risen and is golden brown.
- Remove the casserole dish from the oven and check the seasoning. Add the peas and lemon juice, stir well. Place on the hob and bring to boil for around 3 mins, remove from the heat.
- If you are serving individual pies divide the lamb mixture between 4 x warmed pie dishes and keep warm.
- When you are ready to serve, place the pastry lid on top of each of the pies.
