  • Preheat oven to 400ºF.
  • In a medium saucepan, heat oil over medium; add cabbage and potatoes.
  • Cook until beginning to brown, 7 to 9 minutes.
  • Add beef; cook, breaking up meat with a spoon, until no longer pink, about 5 minutes.
  • Stir in tomato paste, crushed red pepper flakes (if using), Worcestershire, thyme, and 1 cup water.
  • Cover, and cook until potatoes are tender, about 15 minutes.
  • Lightly mash mixture with a fork.
  • Season; salt, & pepper, to taste.
  • Crushed red pepper flakes, if using (optional)
  • Let cool completely.
  • On a lightly floured work surface, roll each crust into a 14-inch square; cut each into 4 equal squares.
  • Place 1/2 cup filling on one half of each square, leaving a 1/2-inch border around the filling; brush borders with water; fold dough over filling to enclose.
  • Crimp edges with a fork to seal.
  • With a paring knife or scissors, cut 3 small vents in each.
  • Transfer pies to 2 foil-lined rimmed baking sheets; bake until golden brown, 10 to 12 minutes, rotating sheets halfway through.
  • *Arrange unbaked pies on a baking sheet (they should not touch); freeze until firm, about 1 hour.
  • Wrap each pie in foil & place in a resealable plastic bag; freeze up to 2 months.
