Eat some pies! – Steph
My sister has this friend from New Zealand, Steph, and whenever she sees a person who is small, skinny, or too uptight in life, she likes to tell them to, “Eat some pies!”
In honor of her, and the fact that I really like meat pies, todays blog will be my favorite pie recipe!
1/2 onion (diced super small)
2 Tbsp. diced garlic
1 pound of beef (I use our home grown, which is about 98/2 — so 2% fat, as in very lean)
1 packet of beef gravy mix
1 packet of onion gravy mix
2 cups water
**If you don’t have gravy mixes, use 2 cups of beef broth with 4 Tbsp. of flour, a little salt and pepper, and omit extra 2 cups of water. Simmer that all in a pan until it gets thicker!**
2 carrots (diced) — you can substitute any veggie —
2 potatoes (diced)
2 packets of puff pastry (or make a double recipe of pastry – tons of recipes online)
Sauté beef until brown in butter (or oil) with onion and garlic.
When beef is cooked, add in gravy packets and water. Simmer for about 2 minutes.
Add in carrots and potatoes, boil for about 20 minutes(veggies should be cooked).
Grease 2 cupcake pans and line them with puff pastry dough. Fill with meat mixture and seal in the pies with puff pastry.
Bake at 425 degrees F for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
Let me know what you all think! Would you all make any changes?
