Step by step

Step 1: Preparations

Mix all the ingredients for the dough into a smooth dough.

Let the dough rest in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours. You can also make it a day in advance.

Step 2: Grill

Generously grease the mold or skillet with butter or goose fat.

Roll out the dough thinly to about 4 mm. Line your pie pan or skillet with the dough and make an extra round for the lid.

Make sure the filling is well cooled and does not contain too much moisture otherwise the pie will be very soggy. Fill the pie to the brim. Try not to touch the metal of your mold with filling, this will cause it to burn.

Brush the edge of the bottom and the lid with a beaten egg and use this to glue the bottom and the lid together.
Poke a hole in the middle of your lid to allow the steam to escape.

Brush the top of the lid with a beaten egg yolk.

Bake the Meat Pie at 150 to 170 degrees in about 40 to 45 minutes or until your dough is nicely cooked and golden brown.

For the pictures I made three versions, a chili, a beef stew and a delicious spicy pulled chicken.

The recipe for the pulled chicken is very simple: preferably start with a whole chicken, so you have a nice mix of the dark and white chicken meat. After cooking it, let it cool down and pull the chicken. Fill your skillet with some onion, garlic green and red bell pepper and mix this with the chicken.

Season with some Grate Goods Spicy Chipotle Rub and Grate Goods California Style Hot Sauce and your stuffing is ready.

Step 3: Serve

As a main course or lunch with a fresh salad.
