Aussie beef pie

November 16, 2009
Our 'love affair' with pies... pot pies, crusty pies, Aussie pies, sweet pies, savoury pies.. you name it we love it.... 2 years since I purchased one of my fave electrical gadgets~ my Sunbeam pie maker... its so unbelievably easy to make pies....

To create the the Aussie would say it 'No worries, mate'.... just add meat with any bottle ready spices like vindaloo, or satay or plain like the photo below.... not only kids love it... adults as well... adore these golden crusty pie....Yum!!

  • 500g thinly strips of beef - coat with 1 tablespoon of plain flour
  • 1 brown onion - diced
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/4 cup of tasty cheese
  • 1 sheet of puff pastry
  • 1 sheet of shortcrust pastry
Saute the onion until soft. Add the beef and stir for 5 minutes. Season with salt and black pepper.
Mix in tasty cheese.
Cut up the puff pastry and the shortcrust pastry accordingly.... shortcrust for base and puff for top. Place the shortcrust pastry in a piemaker, fill in the beef mixture and top with puff pastry. Cook until its golden .....
Serve with steamed vegetables.... or pack for kids lunch box the next day
