“This is the cover recipe from the June '07 Aussie magazine "delicious". After the pan cooking, I put it in my slow cooker for about 4 hours on low. Instead of 6 individual pies, I made one big pie using 2 sheets of pastry. The recipe below is exactly from the magazine. Use less liquid for a slow cooker. It was a huge hit with my son & hubby.”
