Crock pot meat pies which are cooked when you work, play or anything you do inside your day! The beef is really soft and tender, failing and filled with beer flavour swimming inside a wealthy gravy. Freeze them for problems, or eat them fresh the moment there done! And when you've got a cake maker…no oven needed.
Aussie meat pies in their best. Wealthy and boozed up.
It happened in my experience which i haven’t given everyone any crock pot quality recipes. So..this is actually the first.
I’ve made these many occasions over. There’s something about pies and kids they're going hands-in-hands. The best of this is that you could make these questions humbled muffin container! There isn’t any need buy a Cake Maker…although I've one which looks much like this:
Cake Makers really are a blessing for Summer time Pies and staying away from any other warmth originating from ovens. However in winter, we like to crowd round the warmth radiating in the oven watching these rise like perfect puffs filled with gravy.
They’re better still whenever you save a stash (in raw condition or already baked) within the freezer and also you need something quick inside a hungry emergency.
