Steak, onion & tomato pie

This is an easy pie recipe which can be thrown together before you head out for the day.  I make the filling in the slow cooker and it is ready to put into a pie by late afternoon.  Tonight, I couldn't be bothered turning it into a pie so the filling went straight from the slow cooker onto the plates and it was still a hit with my family.  An extremely simple yet tasty meal served with a plate of veges.
