Cajun Meat Pies

'Dat Little Cajun Cookbook' by Chef Remy

Step One, The Pastry:

If you don't have time to make the recipe, premade egg roll wrappers work well, but your own homemade pastry is much better.

2 1/2 All Purpose Flour

1 Tsp Sugar

1/2 Cup Shortening

1 Tsp Salt

1/2 Cup Milk

In a bowl combine flour, sugar and salt.  Pour into food processor with the blade attachment.  With processor on, add shortening in small chunks.  Mix well until flour and shortening form pea sized balls, then add milk a little at a time until dough forms together.  Scrape dough out on floured sheet and roll out to 1/16 inch thick. Cut out 4 inch circles. Lightly flour both sides and reserve.

Step Two, Ground Beef Filling:

3 Tbsp Bacon fat

1/2 Cup Bell Pepper

1/2 Cup Yellow Onion

1/2 Cup Green Onion

1 Tbsp Garlic, Minced

2 Tbsp Parsley Flakes

1 Tsp Cayenne

1 Tsp Allspice, Ground

1 Tsp Salt

1/2 Tsp Black Pepper

1/2 LB  Lean Ground Beef

2 Small Eggs, Beaten (to seal pies)

Finely chop bell pepper, yellow onion and green onion.  Melt fat and add everything except beef and egg and cook for 5 minutes. Add beef and brown. Drain in a colander and let cool.  Place 2 tbsp filling in center of pastry circle.  Moisten edges of circle with egg, fold over to form a half circle and press to seal ( a fork works well).  Deep fry at 350 degrees until brown.  Drain on a paper towel.  Serve.

Note: You can bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for about 8 minutes, turn over and bake other side 8 minutes or until brown. Makes about 25 4-inch pies.
