Sammy and Bella have given the humble meat pie a slow cooked revolution and added some cranberry goodness to mix things up!


  • Pulled pork

  • 1.8kg boneless pork shoulder

  • 500ml cranberry juice

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • Cranberry sauce

  • 400g cranberry sauce

  • 150ml tomato sauce

  • 100ml cranberry juice

  • 2 Tablespoons brown sugar

  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder

  • 1 teaspoon onion powder

  • ½ teaspoon chilli powder

  • ¼ teaspoon ground chipotle pepper

  • ½ teaspoon liquid smoke

  • ½ cup dried cranberries

  • Pastry

  • 8 sheets puff pastry

  • 1 egg


  • 1.

    Cut pork shoulder into large even-sized pieces. Place pork, cranberry juice and salt into a cast iron pot or slow cooker. Cook on a low heat for 8-10 hours until pork is soft and falling apart.

  • 2.

    In a small saucepan combine cranberry sauce, tomato sauce, craberry juice, brown sugar, seasonings, liquid smoke and craisins. Stir while heating over a medium heat for 5 minutes or until slightly thickened.

  • 3.

    Once pork is cooked, take off the heat and when cool enough to handle, shred pork with two forks or hands and return to pan with cooking juices.

  • 4.

    Stir sauce mixture in to the pork and put aside until fully cooled.

  • 5.

    Take 12 large ramekins and cut 12 rounds of pastry that are 1 cm larger than the ramekins.

  • 6.

    Pre heat oven to 220°c. Place cooled pork into 12 ramekins and then cover with cold puff pastry, folding and pressing down the edges. Pierce the top with a fork. Beat the egg and glaze the top of the pies before baking.

  • 7.

    Bake for about 15-20 minutes or until pastry is golden and puffed. Serve immediately.
