    Turned out great! We spent a year in Oz and the pie was very authentic tasting. Used the cubed beef and veg broth tweaks, as well as homemade whole wheat crust! Tasted fair dinkum!

    I grew up eating an abominable version of French meat pie. (Mother still can’t cook.) Dry as dust, murky gray brown & some pre-made pie crust, I went to bed hungry rather than choke it down. So in a leap of faith I’ll make this pie as instructed & get back with results.

    Just ok for me. The flavor was pretty good, but there wasn’t nearly enough filling for my pie dish. I will use 1.5-2lbs of meat next time and probably add in additional seasonings or veggies. Also need to blind bake the base crust before adding in the filling or it comes out soggy. Decent base recipe, but needs a little more.

    My partner in crime is Australian and he LOVES it when I make this recipe. He says it tastes better than most meat pies he's had from home. It's so easy and sooooooo delicious! I prefer using ground turkey - it actually tastes better. Now that I'm Keto (on a low carb ketogenic diet), I make individual meat pies with the very popular "fathead dough" (with a little bit of baking powder added) and I use an almond flour slurry instead of regular flour. The taste is exactly the same. Thank you for this authentic recipe.
