Kerry's Meat Pie
Author: Epicurus.com Kitchens
Ingredients
  • Pastry:
  • 1/4 pound butter
  • 3/4 Cup flour, white
  • 3/4 Cup flour, self-raising
  • water, ice cold
  • Filling:
  • 2 pounds lamb or beef (pre-cooked cubes)
  • 2 medium brown onions
  • 1/4 Cup seasoned flour (flour with basil, oregano and pepper)
  • 1/2 pound mushrooms
  • 6 tomatoes
  • 1 capsicum (green pepper), sliced
  • 1 Cup bread crumbs
  • 1/2 Cup tomato sauce
Instructions
  1. MAKE PASTRY: Cut butter and flour with two knives until mixture contains particles the size of small peas. Sprinkle with cold water until pastry clings together. Shape into ball and place in refrigerator for 1/2 hour.
  2. Roll out to cover pie dish (about 8 inch). Leave enough pastry for a top.
  3. Pre-bake the pie shell for 10 minutes at 350 degrees F. To prevent crust walls from collapsing, fill with dry beans for the first five minutes.
  4. MAKE THE FILLING: fry onions and meat, continuing until onion is lightly browned. Add flour mix, sliced tomatoes, sliced capsicum, tomato sauce and bread crumbs to pan. Continue until capsicum is softened. Add mushrooms and fry for 1 minute more.
  5. Place the fried mix into the pre-baked pie shell, cover with pastry lid and cook in moderate oven for 20 minutes. Serve hot.
