Beef & Mushroom Mini Pies
There are few foods more quintessentially Aussie than Party Pies! Tender beef filling with a pie gravy inside flaky pastry – it’s your dream come true!
In a large based Saucepan, melt the butter & fry the onions for 10 minutes until golden brown, add the garlic & fry for a further 2 minutes.
Add the mushrooms & fry for a further 10 minutes on medium heat, add the dried herbs & stir.
Add the beef mince, breaking it up with a wooden spoon, fry it off until it has all browned nicely.
Add half of the water & scrape the bottom of the pan to remove anything that has stuck, this will give great flavour to the finished product.
With the other half of the water, whisk in the gravy powder & cornflour, add this to the pan, season with salt & pepper, turn the heat to low & cook for 30-40 minutes until the sauce has thickened, stir through the AdVital at the end.
Allow the mixture to cool to room temp.
Using a ring cutter, cut out your desired sizes for the pastry, remembering it will shrink, so make it bigger than you think it will be!
Spray a 12x4 part muffin tray with spray oil, then gently press the short crust pastry discs into the tins, bake at 180 for 15 minutes until they are golden brown.
Allow to cool.
Once cooled, fill the empty shells with the pie mix.
Using a circle cookie cutter, cut the desired size with the puff pastry, place it on top and press the edges to completely seal the mixture inside.
Whisk the eggs together & brush the top with egg.
Place on a tray & bake at 200°c for 12-15 minutes until the puff pastry has puffed up & golden brown.
Allow to cool on the bench for 20 minutes (If you can!)
