  • Good Old Meat Pie


    1 recipe pastry for a 9 inch single crust pie
    3 tablespoons margarine or butter
    1/2 cup chopped onion
    1 potato, diced
    1/3 cup all-purpose flour
    1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
    1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
    1/4 teaspoon black pepper
    1 1/4 cups beef broth
    1 carrot, chopped
    1 cup frozen green peas
    2 cups cubed cooked or leftover beef

    "A great deep dish meat pie made with potatoes, carrots and peas in a rich gravy. Lamb chicken or pork can be used in place of beef. A great recipe for leftover meat!"

  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). On a lightly floured surface, roll the pie crust out into a 12 inch circle. Set aside.
    Melt margarine in a saucepan over medium heat. Add potato and onion, and cook until the onion is tender, but not brown. Sprinkle the flour over the mixture, and stir to blend. Season with oregano, black pepper and garlic powder. Pour in the beef broth, and add the peas, carrot and beef. Bring to a boil. Transfer the mixture to a 2 quart casserole dish, and place the pastry over the top. Cut slits for steam, and flute the edges.
    Place on a baking sheet, and bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until crust is golden. Let stand 10 minutes before serving to thicken.

  • thanks buttercup, but a guyanese meat pie is like a jamacian beef patty but smaller and not as spicy. it has veggies in it, and ground meat, but it's in a crust like a beef patty. thanks for the recipe though....that sounds good ;)

  • Oh, sorry! You wouldn't believe how many variations of meat pies there are. Actually, the meat pies you would find out were I live are just seasoned ground meat in a small crust that's been folded over.
