1.2 kg of Darling Downs Chuck Eye Roll
4 rashers of bacon
2 garlic cloves
2 tbsp tomato paste
2 cups beef stock
1 cup red wine
355ml dark beer
2 thyme sprigs
3 bay leaves
375g sheet shortcrust pastry, defrosted
1 egg yolk beaten
1 tbsp milk
Preheat oven to 180 C. Heat half the oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat, add wagyu in batches.
Heat remaining oil in a large casserole, add onion, bacon and garlic and saute for 4-5 minutes until onion is tender and fragrant. Add mushrooms, brown well, then add tomato paste, stir until darkened
Add stock, wine, dark beer, thyme leaves and herbs and stir to combine.
Cover with a lid and cook in oven for 1 ½ - 2 hours until wagyu is tender. Stir until mixture comes to the boil and sauce thickens. Discard herbs and transfer to a pie or baking dish and refrigerate to cool completely.
Preheat oven to 180 C. Place the pastry on a baking tray and fill it with the fillings from the fridge.
Cut out pastry to cover pie top with a 2cm overhang, place over wagyu mixture and press the overhang to the sides of the pie dish to seal. Cut a hole in the centre of the pastry to allow steam to escape, then brush pastry with egg wash, scatter any extra thyme leaves, and salt and pepper.
Place on a baking tray and bake for 25-30 minutes until the pastry is golden brown. Serve!

Darling Downs Wagyu are raised on the expansive pastures of northern Australia and spend a minimum of 330 days on grain, which helps the development of fine even marbling. The rich flavour comes from the care and importance we place on giving our animals the best life they can have. Get to know the different cuts of Darling Downs Wagyu.
