Australian Meat Pie Recipe




An Aussie meat pie is something to behold. It is designed to be big enough to sate the appetite, but small enough to fit in one hand, and most importantly round enough to fit in one hand and be eaten in a way that the gravy doesn't drip.

Attend any football game during the footy season and you will witness the exquisite performance of man eating an aussie pie without 1. missing the game, 2. wasting any part of the pie by spillage, 3. have it eaten it in one hand (the other obviously holding a stubby of beer) and 4. eaten it in two shakes of a lambs tail!!

Traditional pies are basically meat and gravy in a pastry case. But of course over the years pies have evolved into something of a work of art. But for arguments sake, I'm going to give you my recipe for the meat pies I make for my family. They're still small in shape, but yummy in taste. Enjoy!
