This was published in the Flint Journal some time after the death of the man who created it. His wife allowed it to be published. There was some discrepancy over the use of beef heart or hot dogs as a main ingredient. I use hot dogs but feel free to experiment with beef heart. This was the cornerstone recipe for several local restaurants in the Flint area where I grew up and is a favorite memory of many who were raised here.
Original pasties are generally made with a dough similar to pie dough. My waist line requires a lighter version so I use a low fat or fat free bread dough. One version is also available on my recipe site.
I converted this from a chicken ricipe and eliminated most of the fat as well. It has a slight bite to it from the red pepper flake and a hint of chicken from the seasonings. An excellent choice if you are vegetarian or just trying to reduce calories and fat while increasing nutrition.
