Beef + Lamb New Zealand

Is there anything more comforting than a big hearty meat pie? This one ticks all the boxes for us; incredibly tasty, loaded with veggies and using one of the most delicious cuts of lamb: the shoulder. All bundled up in a puff pastry shell, it’s as equally good for a mid-week feast or when you’re entertaining!
