Double~Crust Aussie Meat Pie

Kelly Williams


This is my take on the simple Ausssie meat pie that is so popular in Australia and New Zealand. I prefer to make one large pie with a lattice top, but you can make mini hand-held pies that are more traditional if you wish. GREAT little pies to munch on while watching football or a simple and delicious weeknight meal the whole family will be very pleased with! Serve with a vegetable and/or mashed potatoes, a salad and you're good to go! Pie can also be topped with additional ketchup if desired, and added chopped mushrooms and/or cheese to the filling.

How to Make Double~Crust Aussie Meat Pie


  1. Cook onion and meat until meat is well browned. (Drain grease if necessary.) Dissolve bouillon in 1 1/4 cups boiling water and add. Add ketchup, sauce and seasonings, bring to a boil, cover and simmer 15 minutes. Mix flour with remaining 1/4 cup water til smooth and stir in. Return to a boil, stirring continuously; boil 5 minutes, cool. Line a lightly greased pie plate with the piecrust pastry. Spoon in the cooled meat filling. Moisten edges of pastry with water. Top with puff pastry sheet, pressing down gently to seal edges. *You can also choose to do a lattice top as I prefer to do. Trim and flute edges. Brush with beaten egg to glaze. Bake at 375 degrees for 35-40 minutes or until pastry is golden and done.
