Chef Don's Meat Pies
2 Pounds Ground Beef
1 Pound Ground Pork
2 Cups Chopped Seasonings (Onions, Celery & Bell Pepper)
1 tbs. Garlic (Chopped)
2 tsp. Beef Bouillon
2 tsp. Chicken Bouillon
1 Cup Water
1 tsp. Salt
½ tsp. Cayenne Pepper
1 ½ tsp. Black Pepper
2 tbs. Fresh Parsley (Chopped)
1 Cup Green Onions (Sliced)
¼ Cup Beef Gravy
Prepared Pie Crust
1. In a heavy bottom pot, sauté beef & pork until completely cooked. Drain excess fat and add seasonings and garlic. Then Sauté for another ten minutes. Next, dissolve bouillon in water and add salt & pepper. Cook until water is almost gone. Next, add parsley & green onions and then cook until well blended. Blend in gravy and allow to cool completely overnight.
2. Cut a round pie crust in half and brush edges with egg wash. Place a scoop of meat in middle of crust and fold over. (Crimp with a fork) Poke a few holes in top of pie crust to allow steam to escape. Last, brush entire top of meat pie with egg wash.
3. Bake at 350 Degrees until golden brown and warm inside for approximately 30 minutes.
