DIRECTIONS

  • Mix all spices, diced bell peppers and diced onion, with ground meat thoroughly, and brown the meat in 1 teaspoon of olive oil in a skillet until meat is cooked (about 10 minutes).
  • Once ground beef is cooked, add the diced cooked potatoes and heat for 5 minutes.
  • Taste meat mixture and adjust amount of spices according to taste.
  • To make dough: Sift together dry ingredients and cut the butter into the dry ingredients with a fork or pastry cutter until mixture is crumbly.
  • While mixing with a wooden spoon, add water a tablespoon at a time until dough holds together in a ball(you may need more or less water than stated depending on humidity of your flour)
  • (If the dough crumbles, add a little more water by drops until the particles adhere).
  • When dough comes together into a ball, lightly flour your work surface (counter top or cutting board) and roll out the dough until 1/8 inch thick.
  • Cut out 6-8 inch circles (while working with dough, if dough becomes sticky or too soft put in refridgerator for 10 minutes to cool).
  • Place two teaspoons of meat stuffing in ceter of pastry cut outs.
  • Moisten the edges of the dough with water and fold the top half of the dough circle over the filling (into a half circle) and pinch edges together with a fork to seal.
  • Once all patties are formed, lightly brush the tops with beaten egg.
  • Bake on a lightly greased cookie sheet at 350 degrees for 35 minutes or until golden brown.
