Drop Bear Pies!


Recommended Posts

After @Drop Bear kindly gave me a haunch of venison, I figured whatever I made with it would have to be named in his honor - hence the very recent invention of drop bear pies.


firstly, strip the meat off the bones and dice. Keep bones and gristle bits for dog treats



marinate the meat in a mixture of red wine, black pepper, fresh thyme, rosemary and parsley for about 4 hours



Fry off the meat retaining all fluids. Add more pepper, two table spoons of flour, 500ml of stock, any leftover marinade, 4 bay leaves and a big knob of butter and sit covered in a 150 degree oven for 90 minutes



Dice 600g of bacon (it was 750g but I was hungry), 3 onions and 400g of mushrooms. Fry them off separately, making sure you keep the bacon fat as well, it has to go into the mixture. Take the mix out of the oven, add the mushrooms, bacon and onion and stir to combine. Place back in the oven covered for another hour.



blind bake some pastry shells utilizing pie weights to keep it from puffing up in the middle and taking up valuable meat space



add cooled mixture to the shells and then chuck a lid on, add some stab holes to vent the steamimage.thumb.jpg.fa2a9ea6717b993d19a6d987d2d243ae.jpg


throw back into a 200 degree oven until they look delicious image.thumb.jpg.aafc48330a74ea498f5d992e0514c260.jpg

thanks heaps to @Drop Bear for the venison, hope I have done it justice, definitely happy to take any more off your hands if you have extra. Tasted awesome, extra tender as well.


cheers for reading

Bloody cruel. I am sitting eating dry toast and dribbling down my chin.:no:

Did you drink the remaining marinade?



It all went into the mix ray, not sure how it would have tasted after 4 hrs with meat in it. Didn't look all that appealing. Maybe I could call it "boutique wine" and market it?
