How to make CrustyMeat Pie

Crust Preparation

  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar.

  2. Add the margarine and mix until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

  3. Beat the eggs and add to the mixture.

  4. Gradually add very cold water and mix until a dough forms.

  5. Knead the dough lightly, wrap in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

Filling Preparation

  1. Heat vegetable oil in a pan over medium heat.

  2. Add chopped onions and sauté until translucent.

  3. Add minced meat and cook until browned.

  4. Add diced carrots and potatoes, and cook for a few minutes.

  5. Season with curry, thyme, seasoning cubes, and salt.

  6. Add the flour mix and stir well to combine.

  7. Cook until the mixture thickens and the vegetables are tender. Set aside to cool.

Assembling the Meat Pie

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C).

  2. Roll out the dough on a floured surface and cut into circles.

  3. Place a spoonful of filling in the center of each circle.

  4. Fold the dough over the filling to form a semi-circle and press the edges to seal.

  5. Place the pies on a baking sheet and bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown.

Tips & Tricks

  1. Ensure the water used for the dough is very cold to achieve a flaky crust.

  2. You can use a fork to crimp the edges of the pies for a decorative touch.
