Meat pies are so yummy and great for a quick meal or a party tray. This recipe is so delicious and not hard to make at all. I had frozen beef from my tamale recipe ready to be used in the freezer. All I had to do was make a basic pizza dough with my bread machine. The meat pie filling consists of beef with a red chile sauce, fresh onion and peppercinis for a tangy pop. You can fill your pies with ground beef, chicken or turkey meat. It’s all up to you!
Make a basic pizza dough: (you can use store bought dough if you don’t have a fancy bread machine) But if you must master bread like me, buy a bread machine. See the link at the bottom of the page to order a bread machine.
Ingredients: makes 8-10 Meat Pies
- 1 1/2 cups room temperature water
- 1 tbsp honey
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 2 1/2 cups All Purpose Flour
- 2/3 cups wheat flour
- 2 tsp dry active yeast
I added all these ingredients to my wonderful bread machine, which I named Charlie. I waited 1 1/2 hours for it to proof and rise; then it was ready to be rolled out.
For the filling add:
- sliced raw onion
Roll the dough into small tennis balls.
Add cheese, meat, raw onion, and peppercini.
Place each pie on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Spread softened butter over each pie.
Ta-Da! You are a star!
I wrap these up in the fridge and warm them up for a quick meal. The pepperocini gives this pie a tangy delicious bite. You must try it!
