Use Woolworths Easy to Cook venison or lamb shanks. Top with phyllo pastry brushed with olive oil for a crisp finish. The cooling yoghurt is what makes this pie sing


  • For the pie
  • 1 x 1 kg box Woolworths Easy to Cook venison or lamb shanks
  • 1 T flour
  • 250 g Woolworths frozen phyllo pastry
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • sea salt, to taste
  • black sesame seeds, for sprinkling
  • For the mint-and-cucumber yoghurt, mix:
  • 5 g fresh mint, chopped
  • 1 cucumber, half grated and half sliced
  • ½ lemon, zested
  • sea salt, to taste
  • 1 cup Woolworths Ayrshire double-cream plain yoghurt

Cooking Instructions

1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Remove the meat from the packaging and place in a small, deep, ovenproof dish and bake, covered, for 20 minutes.

2. Remove from the oven and pour the cooking liquid into a small saucepan. Heat over a medium heat, then add the flour mixed with 4 T water and whisk to incorporate. Simmer for 5 minutes, or until thickened.

3. Pull apart the meat and pour the thickened cooking liquid over the meat. Brush the phyllo pastry with olive oil and scrunch with your hands. Nestle the pastry over the pie, sprinkle with black sesame seeds and salt and bake for 20–30 minutes until golden brown and crunchy.

4. Serve with the minted yoghurt.
