First Try At Making Meat Pasties
Sun, 02/13/11 8:27 AM
Hi all. I roasted a leg of lamb a few days ago and had leftovers. I am planning on making Sctch Broth with the bone but still had quite a bit of meat. The thread on Mutton pies inspired me.
I sauted some chopped onion in a pot and added diced carrot, potatoes and parsnip. I added a splash of chicken broth and cooked the veggies until just done. I then added the cut up lamb and leftover gravy(made with a little red wine).
I made a pie crust with 1 1/8 cups flour, 1/2 tsp salt, one stick butter cut up and some ice water. It was enough to make six pasties.
I brushed them with a little milk before baking.
I started them at 400 degrees for tem minutes and then reduced the temp to 350 for the remaining 15 or 20 minutes.
They came out great! I will be using this idea for leftovers in the future. I really want to do a chicken one and a pot roast one too!
