What could be more Aussie than the humble meat pie with the addition of another Aussie favourite..beer! I found this recipe in the Herald Sun & just had to give it go. For convenience the meat filling can be made up to 3 days in advance & refrigerated.

    Made this is as a full pie (enough for 6 to 8 easy). Did omit the onions due to allergy issues and subbed beef stock for the red wine. I think it would have been better still if I had used a more robust beer such as a stout instead of the Hahn Ice I used. Will make again but buy the right beer for it, instead of using what the DH has there. Thank you Mandy, made as a recipenap for Aussie/Kiwi Swap #19 August 2008.

    Good combination of flavors. Next time I would use 1/2 as much bacon (personal taste).

    Loved it! these were tasty indeed... I liked the red wine and beer additions but would use less red wine next time , just for personal preference. I made mine with just the pastry tops, next time I will make a full pie with bottoms as well. I also omitted the mushrooms since I'm allergic to those but don't think that the ommission would have detracted from it in any way. Please see my rating system: a wonderful 4 stars for a yummy recipe. Thanks!
