Pie with meat
How to make a homemade meat pie
Today we have an absolutely spectacular meat pie. In addition to the minced meat filling, it has roasted pickle peppers, serrano ham and boiled egg, not counting the spectacular dough for completely home-made crispy empanadas with which we will make it. This is one of those recipes that, although it takes some time, the result is very satisfactory and I can assure you that it will be if you follow the recipe step by step. In addition, both the dough and the meat filling are recipes that you can use in other dishes. The dough, logically, you can use it in the development of other empanadas; as for the filling, it is ideal for making stuffed peppers,, cannelloni meat or one lasagna with meat. As with many other recipes, the cooking process can help us learn to do much more. I think this is a big advantage.
Perfect recipe for any occasion
This impressive empanada is suitable for dressing our table whenever we want. Yes, it is true that he urges you to do it more on special occasions, more than anything, because that is when we have enough time to face the preparation of this meat pie. I see him perfectly at dinner with friends; I also see it at Christmas as an appetizer; I also see her at a birthday breakfast where you want to eat. I know how easy it is to buy a ready-made pie, but if you want to give your guests the pleasure of eating a homemade meat pie, they will thank you very much.
Tips for making pie dough
– Both pastry dough Like meat fillingThese are recipes that I have already published in Family Kitchen. You will find the links in the ingredients section as well as in the preparation section. You also have the explanation of the two recipes in the video, so there is no loss.
– Realizing that it is much easier to buy the dough already made, I promise you that if you make it at home, the difference will be cruel. So much so that you may not buy empanada dough again.
– Although I say this in preparation, it is essential to make a few small incisions in the dough so that the gases generated during cooking can come out.
Ingredients for 8 people
1 – We prepare the meat filling
The first thing we need to do is the meat filling, the recipe of which I have already published and you can see CLICK HERE. When we’re done, we throw it on a tray and let it cool to make it easier to work with later.
2 – Prepare the dough
Then we start with the dough for crispy empanadas, whose recipe I also published and you can see CLICK HERE. Once we are done, we let him do the appropriate lifting and we can use it.
3 – We stretch part of the dough
After completing the 2 main parts, it’s time to assemble the meat pie. Divide the dough into 2 parts, one slightly larger than the other. First we take the big one and stretch it, giving it a round or square shape, depending on the tray where you will make it (in my case it is round).
4 – Place the dough on the pan
Then we place the stretched dough, covering the entire bottom of the pan, leaving it on a small dough, which we will then fold on top.
5 – We put the filling in order
Now place a well-greased layer of meat filling and then place the piquilo peppers, the boiled egg, sliced and the Serrano ham slices on top.
6 – Stretch and place the dough on top
Roll out the other part of the dough and place it on the well-stretched filling. Then spread the rest of the dough on the bottom with a beaten egg and the part where the fold on top will fall.
7 – Close and paint the empanadata with egg
Pour the excess dough underneath and spread the whole surface of the pie with beaten egg so that it then turns golden. Finally, we make a few incisions on the surface so that the gases generated during baking can escape.
8 – Bake the empanadata
We turn on the oven at 180ºC with heating up and down WITHOUT a fan. When it is hot, put the pie with meat and bake it for approximately 40 minutes.
9 – We present you the made empanada
Then take the pie out of the oven and let it cool down a bit before eating it.
10 – We have to enjoy the empanada
And that’s friends. We finished our meat pie. I hope you prepare it very soon at home and upload the final photo on Instagram, mentioning my account 55000 Recipes. So I will see that you have made one of my recipes and I will be very happy.
Nothing else for today. Tomorrow more and better here at Cocina Familar.
