How to make meatpie COMPLETE VERSION (The Pie family series)

                          PIE MAKING

 Pie making is an art that has been on for some ages and I won’t really bother with history

 If you are keen on knowing history of pies, google it up.

 What I know is for you to be able to whip up your own batch of sauce and covering  and eventually making pies in your home by yourself.

    So there are different kinds of pies;
¤Meatpie
¤Chicken pie
¤Fruit pie
¤Fish pie
 Pies are generally named after the content and there are different shapes, sizes and designs.
However,  today I ll teaching on how to make Meat pie.

            MEATPIE

The uniqueness of the meatpie is simply because it is filled with meat. 

For the meatpie,  preparation of two things are important;

1. Dough used as cover
2. Sauce Content.

   Ingredients for dough
¢ All purpose flour (500g)

 

   ¢ Baking powder (40g)
   ¢ Margarine (250g)
   ¢ Pinch of salt
   ¢ Nutmeg (flavour) 
   ¢ little water (2-3tbsp) 
 
Ingredients for sauce
   ¢ Grounded beef
   ¢ Irish Potato (as thickener, some people use flour) 
   ¢ Groundnut oil
   ¢ Seasoning
   ¢ Salt
   ¢ Ginger and Garlic
   ¢ Pepper (habanero pepper)

                Preparation of Dough
   * Pour your flour into a container, add your baking powder and pinch of salt and* Add your margarine and mix until it forms crumbs (because of the amount of butter, the crumbs are yellow in colour)

* Mix with little water and knead lightly until it forms dough.. Believe me, it will form with little water because of the amount of butter.

* Wrap inside cling film and put in fridge to set for about 15mins.  Upon release, it would come out smoothly and round.

* Cut out a chunk and roll out thin (2mm), OPEN UP YOUR MEATPIE CUTTER,
PLACE THE ROLLED DOUGH ON THE MEATPIE CUTTER,
PUT YOUR SAUCE IN CENTRE AND CLOSE TIGHTLY AND TRIM OFF EXCESSES.
THEN OPEN AND YOUR MEATPIE IS FORMED.

If you can’t get a MEATPIE cutter, after the dough is rolled out 2mm, pour the sauce in the middle, close it, cut and trim the edges and press together with a fork. If it doesn’t close, sprinkle little water at the edges before pressing together with a fork.

                 SAUCE PREPARATION

    VERY EASY;
* Put oil on a pan under a medium set light
* Pour in your chopped onions and pepper, stir and reduced the heat to low set
* Add your seasoning and add your minced meat. Leave for 3mins
* After 3mins, open and pour in your chopped potato and add water and salt to taste.
* Cover and let it cook for 10mins.
      After this, stir all and pour out on a tray.  Spread out on the tray and allow to cool.
When it cools down, it would have come together and can be used for MEATPIE sauce.
