Mince Pie

admin's picture
Mince Pie is festive pie. I remember it was a Christmas time and my folks had come over to my place and I was asked to prepare a red meat pie, so I made this British pie. The beef mixed with tomato paste and flavored with pepper and parsley gives the mine pie a divine taste. Trust me every one just enjoyed.
Ingredients
  Short crust pastry/Flaky / rough puff pastry / commercial pastry 12 Ounce
  Onion 1 , chopped
  Oil 1 1⁄4 Tablespoon
  Finely ground beef 1 Pound
  Tomatoes 2 , chopped
  Tomato paste 2 1⁄2 Tablespoon
  Chopped parsley 1 1⁄4 Tablespoon
  Salt 1 Teaspoon
  Pepper 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Egg 1 (For Glazing)
Directions

Prepare pastry and chill in refrigerator until required.
Gently saute onion in oil until soft, about 5 minutes.
Add ground beef and stir over heat until it all changes color.
Add tomatoes, tomato paste, parsley salt and pepper.
Cover and simmer gently for 45 minutes.
Cool.
Divide pastry in half, roll one half out to a circle and line a 9 inch pie plate.
Place cold meat filling in pastry lined plate.
Roll remaining pastry out to a circle and place on top of meat.
Trim edges, seal with cold water and flute.

Awsome recipe I raised all my children on food like the above and they loved it. Try it with just baked beans, onions and 2 vegetable stock cubes crumbled into the mix, different but just as nice.
