Hey lovelies. Just felt like sharing my meatpie recipe with you guys. This is a favorite snack in my home. You will pick up a list of what you need for this as we go along. Enjoy

1) wash your hands thoroughly. Very important step. Alternatively, wear gloves if you have any open cuts on your finger/s or have acrylic nails.

1b) Dice half of a small onion, two medium carrots and two medium russet potatoes (also called Irish potatoes in some parts of Nigeria)

Sauté the vegetables in about 4 tables spoonfuls of vegetable oil. Starting with the onions and a pinch of curry, when the aroma is released, go ahead and add carrots. Cook for about 6 mins or until slightly softened

Add in 1 pound of ground beef or corned beef. If using corned beef, be careful with adding extra salt.

Season to your taste. I use 1 teaspoonful each of black pepper, adobo all purpose seasoning, salt and two cubes of maggi seasoning

Sorry.

When the beef is browned, add in the diced potatoes and cook for 3-5 mins. Then mix 2 tablespoonfuls of corn starch in cold water and add to the mix. This helps to thicken it.

Cool until thickened. Turn heat off and leave it covered. Your meatpie filling is ready.

Yay. Two at a time.

Now to make the crust.

Mix one pound of butter with two pounds of flour. Rub the butter in until the mix is crumbly.
I season my flour with one teaspoon of all purpose seasoning before adding the butter. It helps to reduce blandness.

Mix your flour and butter crumble with 3/4 to one cup of water to make a dough. You can do this by hand or use a food processor. Your dough is ready when it’s stretchy but still easy to cut with your fingers.

Roll a large handful of dough onto your cooking board until it’s 1/2 inch thick. Cut into circles depending on how big you want the pies to be

Fill each circle with one tablespoonful of filling. Don’t over fill so that it won’t burst at the seams when baking.
Break one egg and beat it thoroughly. Use a cooking brush to apply the beaten egg to the inner edges of the pies. Fold and seal with a fork. Do this until all your filling or dough is gone.

Rub the surfaces of the pies with the beaten egg, poke little place holes on the top of each pie to help release steam and put into the oven at 370 degrees Fahrenheit. Bake for 45 mins or until brown.

BTW 370 Fahrenheit is about 188 degrees Celsius.

While your pies are baking, clean up the mess you made in the kitchen.

1) before clean up

2) after clean up

Now I feel better about enjoying my pies

It takes a while but it’s so worth it.
Especially since I can’t even find anywhere to purchase them around here. My sister in law who lives close to us used to travel to London to buy meatpies grin
Until we moved closer to her. Now she’s my bestie because I supply her with them.

This is what it looks like when done. Those lines/creases on the surfaces helps you know that you got your crust texture right.

Enjoy with your favorite cola or malt drink. This is the closest to Malta Guinness (my favorite) that I could find here.

My sis-in-law likes hers more brown and crisp. So I let her batch stay a few minutes longer in the oven.

I hope you guys like and try this recipe and let me know how it goes. Feel free to ask me any questions about it kiss
