A meat pies a great comfort food that dates back to as far as Roman times. It was a kind of food that was served during parties, meetings, celebrations and banquets. There were several reasons why people would serve this dish. One of which is that it was very tasty and could be mixed with several kinds of fruits or vegetables. Meat Pies has some nice tips on this.
Although we have tried to make meat pies from scratch at home, whenever we do so, we always end up getting the same kind of disappointment because the meat gets overcooked and the crust tends to fall apart leaving the resulting comfort food taste that we are used to taste. The good news is that you can avoid all this and enjoy eating a good quality meat pie recipe from scratch anytime without having to settle for the usual quick meal version. All you need to have is a good quality crust, preferably one that is made from flour, salt, yeast, baking powder, sugar and oil and you’re good to go.
Another important thing you need to remember about making this dish right from scratch is that you need to make sure that you keep your dough as cold as possible. This is because meat pies are known to be cooked on low temperatures, hence you should also keep the temperature low while preparing your dough. In addition to this, you should also use cold water to prepare your dough for rolling out into the crust. This is because cold water prevents the flour from sticking together while rolling out the dough. When rolling out your dough, make sure you do not apply too much pressure on the sides as this may result in fluffing up of the dough resulting in a lumpy piece of pie crust.
