This delicious Aussie meat pie recipe is a hearty family meal that will most certainly lead the way to dad’s heart (via his stomach of course). It is also super healthy and a perfect addition to a healthy eating plan like our 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge.
The beef is tender and juicy and it is also jam-packed with yummy veggies. Pair it with a healthy salad and you really can’t go wrong.
Traditionally a pie isn’t on the menu in a healthy eatingplan, but with this Aussie meat pie recipe, you just use one sheet of low fat puff pastry to serve 6 people. Too easy!
Try serving this pie with some steamed beans, corn or peas; or a crispy green salad.
Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan over med/high heat.
Brown the beef until golden, set aside.
In the same pan, cook the onion, carrot, capsicum celery and garlic for 4-5 minutes.
Add the thyme and the mushrooms and cook for a further 2 minutes.
Season to taste and then add the flour and tomato paste, stirring well for 1 minute.
Place the beef back into the pan and add the wine, stock and Worcestershire sauce.
Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat to low and cover.
Bake in the oven for 90 minutes.
Remove the pastry sheet from the freezer and allow to thaw on the bench.
Increase the heat of the oven to 190C.
Place the beef filling into a pie dish (or use a deep cake tin) and cover with the pastry, tucking into the sides.
Brush the top with milk and bake in the oven for around 25 minutes or until golden brown on top.
