Tanzanian Meat Pie


INGREDIENTS

FOR THE PASTRY
3 cups flour
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. sugar
8 oz. margarine, cut in 1" cubes and frozen for 1 hour
6 tbsp. very cold water


FOR THE FILLING
1 small russet potato
1 tbsp. olive oil
2 tsp. madras curry powder
1 cup red onion, diced
1 cup carrot, dice
4 cloves garlic, minced
8 oz. ground beef
1 tbsp. thyme, chopped
¼ tsp. cayenne pepper
1 cup beef stock
1 tsp. salt
1 flour or breadcrumbs
1 egg, for eggwash

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. In a food processor, pulse the flour, sugar and pinch of salt. Add margarine and mix the mixture until resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in water until mixture forms a ball. Dump the dough  into a medium sized bowl and cut into 10 equal sections. Roll each section into a six inch circle (approximately 1/8 inch thick). Set aside.
  2. Melt margarine in a skillet over medium heat. Saute onion until soft and translucent. Stir in ground beef.  Add the seasons and cook until beef is evenly brown, stirring constantly. Stir in beef stock and flour/bread crumbs. Simmer until liquid is absorbed. Remove from heat.
  3. Spoon equal amounts of filling into each pastry circle. Fold over and press edges together, making a half circle. Use a fork to press edges, and brush the top of each patty with beaten egg.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes, or until golden brown.
