Duck Meat Pies

Duck Meat Pies

Wander the streets of Sydney with Duck Meat Pies! Rich filling made with our Duck Confit, onions, red wine & beef broth is nestled in a mini pie crust and topped with flaky pastry dough. Meat pies are possibly Australia's most famous street food eaten as a snack, appetizer, or main meal. Served in food trucks and pastry shops, this time-honored Aussie dish pairs wonderfully with a Shiraz from Southern Australia. Find this recipe on #CookingWithLiv!


Duck on the Barbie

We can't visit Australia without a barbecue! Try our BBQ Duck Recipe for a delicious savory barbecue made with our Whole Duck. Combine your favorite barbecue sauce with onions, garlic, green chilies and fresh lime juice to create a fresh and spicy sauce to top your duck. Roast the duck or throw it on the grill for a classic Duck on the Barbie Australian-style. Pair this vibrant barbecue recipe with an Australian Semillon from Hunter Valley in New South Wales.

Australian Duck Burgers

Australian Duck Burgers "With the Lot"

Level up your burger with Aussie Duck Burgers! What makes a burger Australian? Aussies love to top their burgers "with the lot" with unique ingredients like beet root, pineapple, rocket (arugula), and of course BBQ sauce in addition to traditional burger toppings. We recommend serving this recipe with a Liv's favorite traditional Australian side - Duck Fat Fries seasoned with chicken salt with chili sauce on the side for dipping. The sweet and salty flavors of this recipe pair wonderfully with a buttery Chardonnay from the wineries of West Australia. Check out #CookingWithLiv for a video of this recipe!
