Steps in making the filling HOW TO MAKE MEAT PIE

Working HOW TO MAKE MEAT PIE

  •  Peel the Irish potatoes, scrape the carrots, wash and cut the potatoes and carrot.
  •  Wash and slice the onions into tiny pieces
  •  Place your cooker to medium heat, heat the vegetable oil in a pot, add the sliced onions and stir for a bit, add the minced meat and stir until the minced meat turns pale
  •  Add 1 cup of water, seasoning and thyme cover the pot and once the content starts boiling add the diced carrot and potatoes and cook till everything is well done
  •  Dissolve 2 tablespoons of plain flour and half cup of cold water and add to the meat pie filling. This mixture helps the meat pie filling stay moist during baking.
  •  Add salt to taste, stir the contents and turn off the heat.
    Steps in making the dough

HOW TO MAKE MEAT PIE

  •  Put 1kg of flour in a bowl, add 2 teaspoons of baking powder and 2 pinches of salt
  •  Use a tablespoon to scoop the margarine in small bits into the bowl of flour. The smaller you make the bits of margarine, the easier it will be for you to rub them in the flour.
  •  Use fingertips to rub the margarine into the flour till the mix becomes like crumbs
  •  Add cold water in bits while at the same time folding the mix till a stiff ball of dough is formed
  •  Knead the dough very well, put the dough back in the bowl and leave it to rest for 5 to 7 minutes. This makes the dough more elastic
  •  Set your oven at 170°C (335°F) and leave to preheat
  • Rub margarine on the inside of the oven tray, this is to make sure the meat pie doesn’t burn or stick to the tray while baking
  •  Break the egg and beat it
  • knead the dough some more, roll it to achieve a 5mm thickness, use a cutter to make round cuts on the rolled out dough
  •  Remove the excess dough, leaving behind the round cuts. Scoop some meat pie filling into the center of the round cuts, the quantity should be such that you can comfortably close the dough without overflows
  •  Rub the egg on the inside edge of the cut meat pie dough, this is to ensure that your meat pie is perfectly sealed and does not open up while it is being baked
  •  Fold one part of the dough to meet the other end and use a fork to press the two edges together to close tightly. Roll out more dough, cut, fill, close and place in the greased oven tray till all the dough is used
  •  Rub the egg on the meat pies. This gives the meat pie a golden brown hook when done
  •  Set the tray in the preheated oven and bake for 30-40 minutes (the minutes depends on the type of the oven used).
