Ingredients

12 portion(s)

  • 2 Onions peeled and halved
  • 2 cloves garlic peeled
  • 20 g oil
  • 30 g balsamic vinegar, optional
  • 1 heaped tsp ground cumin
  • 1 heaped tsp smoked paprika
  • 1200 g gravy beef diced
  • 80 g tomato paste
  • 40 g plain flour
  • 50 g Worcestershire sauce
  • 30 g balsamic vinegar
  • 50 g Vegetable stock paste, (or beef)
  • 200 g water
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1-2 qty EDC shortcrust pastry
  • 2-3 sheet Puff Pastry or TM Ruff Puff

Recipe's preparation

    Beef Pie Mix - Make ahead of time to allow to cool
  1. Add onions and garlic to bowl and chop for 3 seconds on Speed 7.  Add oil and 30g balsamic vinegar and sauté for 10 minutes at 100deg Speed 1.

  2. Add remaining ingredients and cook for 45 minutes at 100 deg on Reverse Speed 1.

     

    NOTE: It is your choice to add the extra balsamic at this stage.  I have it in 2 steps, 1 to infuse the onions and 1 to infuse the sauce.  You don't have to though.

  3. Cook again for 15 minutes at Varoma on Reverse Speed 1 (with basket in place if you need to reduce liquid).  Allow to cool for a few hours.

  4. Pie Assembly
  5. Make your pastry as required.  If using an electric 4 pie maker you should get 12 pies from this quantity of beef.  

    If making one big pie you can reduce the amount of pastry required.  Bake at 180jdeg for approximately 20 minutes or until golden.

    This mix is delicious without pastry and served with vegetables or a mash potato top.

    Note:  Your pastry will be cooked properly if your pie mix is cold when placed into pastry.

    Enjoyed by whole family. Handy one to pre-prepare earlier (the meat mix) so big thumbs up for that. I cooked for about 3/4 hour total as I wanted it chunky. Also I put strainer on top for last 15 min to reduce liquid, but still had to leave a little liquid out when I made the pie. I had to brown off top using grill as pastry didn't cook. I only added one lot of vinegar too.

    I didn't have quite enough steak so topped up with mince and carrot and zucchini.

    only used 15 grams of balsamic vinegar in the first step.

    just waiting to put it in the pie and cook. Tastes delish!!

    Amazing recipe!
    Tastes so good!

    We always use this recipe for leftover roast meat and vegetables. I always put in the same amount of quantities (as long as I have a decent amount of meat and veges leftover) and then just halve the cooking time. Great with roast beef, lamb and also pork.

    We actually get upset when we have a roast and there’s no leftovers for pies 😂

    This is truly the best beef pie ever!! I've made these several times, and they're just perfect. Everyone loves them, so I don't bother making any other recipes now. I make them as individual pies to take camping... yes we have a car oven... and these are lunches on travel days. All I hear is "are these best beef?' Hubby won't eat bought pies from roadhouses ever again!! Thank you for a winner!!

    Submitted by Young and Hopeless on 6. January 2019 - 15:36.

    Used diced beef, left out extra vinegar and didnt cook it for the extra 15 minutes. Very tasty but dosent have the whole 'aussie meat pie' feel to it. Meat wasnt as tender as expected.

    I actually think this would be a nice base as a stew with a few carrots, potatoes and a few extras chucked in

    Pretty good!

    I only used 800g of rump streak that I had on hand and added two carrots and a Zucchini after step one & chopped for 5 sec speed 5. I’m glad I only added the first lot of balsamic vinegar as it is quite noticeable at the end. Not bad though!

    Very good and tasty. Need to reduce cooking time a bit because meat disintergrates too much. But for all of that it is my go to recipe for beef pie. Have used it many times and will use it again.

    Submitted by CharliBoos on 7. June 2018 - 14:28.

    I had to tweak the recipe a little because someone...ok me, didnt check the pantry before I started cooking! It turns out I didnt have worcestershire sauce, not enough tomato paste, no veg/beef stock and I only had 1kg of beef so this was my variation and it was yum! I kept all the same times etc.

    1 Onion peeled and halved
    1 super large clove garlic peeled
    20 g oil
    30 g balsamic vinegar
    1 heaped tsp ground cumin
    1 heaped tsp smoked paprika
    1000 g gravy beef diced
    40 g tomato paste
    40 g plain flour
    1 tsp marmite - (yes I'd even run out of vegemite) Lol
    20 g soy sauce
    10 g hoisin sauce
    2 tbs gravox (or any instant traditional flavour gravy)
    50 g chicken stock paste from quirky cooking
    180 g water

    Submitted by Shady Lady on 22. July 2017 - 22:21.

    Great recipe - thanks for sharing. I used both lots of vinegar and 1.5kgs of gravy beef - same amount of other ingredients. Also I had no stock paste so used 2.5 oxo cubes instread. Also used sweet smoked paprika. Made exactly 1 large pie and 4 single serve small round pies. Needed 2 x quantities of shortcrust pastry from everyday cookbook and 2 sheets puff pastry. Took 35-40 minutes too brown at 180 deg on top shelf of oven. Pies taster fantastic, I was so surprised how tender the meat was. Thank you - will make again.

    Cooked this last night for the first time with my new pie maker. I followed the recipe exactly. The flavour was amazing but found the consistency was too runny and beef was well cooked but tough. Next time some corn flour to thicken it and maybe smaller beef pieces.
