Aussie Meat Pie

Aussie Meat Pie created by Perfect Pixie

This recipe is from the Pampas Pastry website. It passes the Susan test for a five star recipe - easy, delicious and looks good too! These pies freeze well. Prepare up to the baking stage, then freeze. Cook from frozen on the day they are required. Hope you enjoy your Aussie Meat Pie - maybe enhanced with a glass of Coonawarra red! Edited to add - some grated/shredded cheese could be added to the mince mixture to make a cheese and mince pie, as per Perfect Pixie's review - great idea - thanks PP!

    I have made this recipe many times, my son doesn't like onion, ( it's a texture thing) but I substitute the diced onion for onion powder and he has never complained, I make them sometimes in the electric pie maker and then freeze them for snacks while watching the football, always a huge hit. Thanks Sussan :)

    Made this mixture for our Christmas party. I put it in mini pre-made tart shells and added a ? cup of shredded carrots while cooking. Cooked the shells for 10 minutes first and let them cool before filling them. The recipe as is will make 54 mini%u2019s. They were a big hit, very tasty and had many compliments. Will definitely be making them again (already been requested for the New Years party) Thanks for posting such a delicious recipe

    OH MY WORD!!!! I'm South -African and I grew up on chicken , beef etc meat pies. AND this one is unbelievable, so easy, so tasty full of flavour. Thank you for sharing :-) I have to give it 5 stars. I did add some peas while cooking the meat filling , it adds some colour and 9 i use less pots . THANK YOU !!! This one is a keeper :-)

    A top recipe very similar to one I have just foud and made - better than any other on the 'net. I too am a Gold Coaster and the only suggestion I would make is to try using chuck steak cut into a 10mm dice rather than ground. It makes it munchier.<br/>And please PP if you do add cheese don't call it an Aussie meat pie because it would be nothing of the sort!<br/>Briseis, in Oz the standard meat pie fits a round tin 130top x75base x20deep mm. I always make small standard ones they can be eaten out of hand and are much more convenient.
