Three Traditional Australian Recipes

Category :

For a long time, Australian food had a great resemblance to British food, largely due to the fact that most Australian settlers were of British origin. Yet over time, Australian cuisine has taken on its own unique fusion of Mediterranean, British, and Asian flavors. This article features three of my favorite Australian recipes that I'm sure you will enjoy!

Sausage Rolls
Ingredients:
6 slices of bread
1/2 cup hot water
4lbs ground sausage meat
1 onion (finely chopped)
1/2 tsp mixed herbs
24 ounce package of ready puff pastry (thawed)
1 egg (beaten)
Desired seasonings to taste

Directions:
Take the crusts off of the bread and soak the bread in hot water for about 5 minutes. Remove the excess water from the bread. In a large bowl, mix together the sausage meat, bread, onion, desired seasonings, and mixed herbs. Blend well, then place the mixture into an icing piping bag (or a freezer bag with a corner snipped off). Roll out the pastry sheets and cut them in half. Pipe the filling along one edge of each sheet of pastry. Roll the pastry over the sausage twice (or until the sausage is fully encased in the pastry). Cut a few slits into the top of each pastry and brush them with a beaten egg. Move the sausage rolls to a baking sheet and bake at 450 degrees F for about 20 minutes, then reduce the heat to 350 degrees F for an additional 10 - 15 minutes.

Meat Pie
Ingredients:
1.5 lbs ground beef
2 beef stock cubes
1 1/2 cups of water + additional 1/4 cup
2 tbsp all-purpose flour
1 tsp soy sauce
Salt and pepper to taste
A pinch of nutmeg
1 deep dish pie crust
(topping of pie)
12 ounces puff pastry
1 egg yolk
1 tsp water

Directions:
Brown the meat in a skillet over a low heat until it is thoroughly cooked. Drain off any remaining fat. Crumble the beef cubes and add it along with 1 1/2 cups of water, pepper, salt, and nutmeg. Allow the mixture to boil, then reduce the heat. Cover, then simmer for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Combine 1/4 cup of water with 2 tablespoons of flour and mix well. Add this to the meat, then stir until well combined. Return the meat to the heat and stir until the mixture thickens. Add the soy sauce and stir well. Simmer (uncovered) for about 5 or 10 minutes, then remove from heat and allow it to cool before pouring into the pie shell. Roll out the puff pastry onto a floured surface and cut the pastry to fit over the pie. Mix the egg yolk and water together and brush over the top of the pie, then bake at 400 degrees F for about 5 minutes, or until the pie crust is golden brown. Reduce to 350 degrees F and cook for an additional 10 minutes.
