Gravy was amazing, damper flopped. I followed instructions but the damper was still too moist and sticky, so just used a sheet of puff pastry instead. Made for My Food Odyssey.
Now this was a pie! Only change I made was I didn't have beef stock so instead used a cup of chicken stock with a tablespoon of vegemite. I used 'roo meat but I think if using any other sort of meat it would be important to use nice lean meat not any fatty cuts. For the beer I used Cascade Pale Ale and served with the same. The reduction of the sauce gave it a great gravy-like consistency and it really was a very tasty and satisfying meal. Instructions were great although you probably don't really need to preheat the oven until about step 14 ;-). This makes such a nice and refreshing change from pastry based pies.
My kids LOVED this recipe - kangaroo included. I had to omit the beer because they are celiac, and had to do a gluten-free damper, but it worked out better than I expected. Also used the pastry recipe to do meat pies (can do little ones in muffin tin) with mince meat, grated veges and tomato sauce! Too easy
