Aussie Meat Pies

From the kindness of my husband volunteering me to make some meat pies for a co worker.....we gave these a try....And we really liked them.  We used the rough puff pastry tutorial from Martha Stewart which was so fast and easy...I highly recommend it.  Below is the recipe for the filling which we will definitely be making again.
Just in case you'd like to try....This is the recipe for the minced beef filling......
Mince Beef Pie Filling
2 Tbsp oil
1 onion, chopped
1 carrot, chopped
1 lb ground beef
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 Tbsp ketchup
2 Tbps worchestershire sauce
2 Tbsp soy Sauce
1 Tbsp flour
1 1/2 cup chicken stock
3/4 tsp ground black pepper
salt to taste
Fry onion and carrot in oil until onion is translucent.  Add in beef and continue to cook over medium heat until browned and no longer pink.  Add garlic and fry 1-2 minutes, then stir in flour and fry 1 minute.  Add all remaining ingredients and simmer until liquid is cooked down and the mixture is thickened, but still moist....about 30 minutes.  Turn off heat and let cool before putting in crust.  Roll crust to fit 3 - 4 small pie tins (depending on size) and divide filling equally between them.  Top with another circle of pastry and slit top and  brush with egg wash.  Bake on heated baking stone on bottom shelf of oven at 375F for 30-40 minutes or until crust is golden and filling is heated through.
