Meat Pies

Baked Meat Pies in a Plate - Adun

MEAT PIES!!!!! (Yes I was screaming this in my head). I'll tell you why.

But first! I have been doing this for a long time and I recently decided to make my food accessible to those around me! Birthdays, office events, small parties, office potlucks, Thanksgiving dinners, private catering? I am your guy!

I started writing this post about two months ago, I didn't post it because I really wanted to perfect it and make sure the measurements were spot on. I called my mum (shout out to Mrs. Smith) and asked her for her meat pie recipe, she wrote it, scanned it, and emailed it to me about 3 pages! I wish she was this enthusiastic some years ago when I asked for a second helping of meat from the pot, I wouldn't have had to stea... nvm.

To today's recipe. This is a meat-filled pastry... (okay Tobi Mr. Obvious). Trust me this recipe is foolproof. I will detail how not to and how to have the perfect Meat Pie.

Ingredients

  • Salt
  • 1 Egg
  • 5 Carrots
  • 4 Potatoes
  • Bay Leaves
  • 1 Onion Bulb
  • Thyme
  • Curry
  • Garlic Powder
  • Ginger Powder
  • 200 g of Butter
  • 3 Cups of Flour
  • 1 Seasoning Cube
  • 2 lbs of Ground Beef
  • 1 tsp of Baking Powder
  • 2/3 Cup of Ice Cold Water

Directions

  1. Pray to the Meat Pie gods to grant you favor. Arrange your ingredients and post a photo on your social media so they know you are about to create magic and this will motivate you to do your best. Meat Pies Ingredients - Adun
  2. In a pot add your ground beef, chopped up onion, 1 tsp each of thyme, curry, ginger powder garlic powder, bay leaves, salt, and your seasoning cube. Cook this for 15 minutes. Ground Beef and Seasoning in a Pot - Adun
  3. Peel, chop up your potatoes and carrots as finely as possible. Chopped Carrots and Potatoes - Adun
  4. Add these to the pot of cooking beef. Let this cook for about 15 more minutes. Ground Beef and Vegetable Filling - Adun
  5. When this is cooked, stir it properly.  Cooked Meat Pie Filling - Adun
  6. Mix 3 Tbsps of flour in 1.5 cups of cold water and add this to the pot to thicken it. This prevents having a watery filling and keeps it moist while it bakes. Ground Beef and Vegetable Filling with Flour - Adun
  7. For your dough, mix flour, baking powder, and salt and stir this together well with a whisk. Add your very cold hard butter into the flour and mix till it looks rough. Flour - Adun
  8. Pour in 3/4 cups of ice cold water gradually and mix till it is all incorporated. Wrap with a film and chill in the fridge for 10 minutes then bring it out and let it sit for another 10 minutes. Wrapped Dough in Cling Film - Adun
  9. Roll the dough out on a flat surface. My mum used to use a fork to seal the edges but I use a dough press set because it is cute, I am lazy and it also makes really firmly sealed pies (these people need to pay me for this promo). Dough Presser - Adun
  10. Before you seal your pies brush the edges with egg wash. Folded Pies - Adun
  11. Place your pies on a tray and brush with egg wash. Set in the fridge for about ten minutes then make holes on them with a fork. This prevents it from opening up while baking. Bring it out the fridge then brush again with egg wash (this makes it shine briiighttt like a diamond or Fenty beauty highlighter) then bake for 35-40 minutes on 350F.  Pies in a Baking Tray - Adun
  12. And, you have your beautiful shiny meat pies! Enjoy! Baked Meat Pies
