LambPie Main

RECIPE OVERVIEW

When topping the pie with its pastry lid, make sure the lamb mixture and the pastry lid don't meet, otherwise instead of nice crispy, flakey pastry, it'll be soggy.

Preparation time: 60 minutes

  4. Reduce heat to medium-low. Return lamb to pan. Cover and cook for 1 hour. Uncover and cook for a further 30 minutes or until lamb is tender and the sauce thickens. 
  5. Set aside for 1 hour to cool slightly. Transfer to a bowl. Cover with plastic wrap. Place in the fridge for 1-2 hours to cool completely.
  6. Preheat the oven to 200ºC. Brush a pie dish with oil. Spoon lamb mixture into dish. Top with the pastry. Trim excess.
  7. Use a fork to press the edge to seal and decorate. Brush the pie with egg. Cut a cross in the top of the pastry. Decorate with a rosemary sprig. 
  8. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until puffed and golden. Serve with steamed green beans & Garlic mash.
