Ingredients for Ground Beef Meat Pie Recipe
pie dough - you will need a 9-inch double crust pie dough for this recipe.
You can make your own or use store-bought.
ground beef - 1 lb. of ground beef (also known as minced beef).
dark soy sauce - adds a darker colour
salt and pepper
egg - for egg wash
Prepare the meat filling
Heat butter in a large skillet over medium high heat until the butter starts to sizzle and shimmer. Add in onions, garlic, parsley and ground beef. Stir well with a spatula and cook for 5-6 minutes until meat browns and is no longer pink.
Add in potatoes, carrots, Worcestershire sauce, dark soy sauce, salt and pepper. Stir well to cook evenly for another 2-3 minutes. Stir in breadcrumbs until fully combined. Remove the skillet from the heat and let the meat filling cool down completely for about an hour, up to overnight.
Assemble the pie
Transfer the first dough disc onto a 9-inch pie pan and gently press down to form into the bottom pie crust. Slowly transfer the meat filling from the skillet into the dough-lined pie pan and use a spatula to spread them evenly across.
Carefully place the second dough disc over the filling as the top pie crust. Make sure it covers the pie pan entirely. Gently press the edges of the top crust and the edges of bottom crust together, and crimp with your fingers to seal. Make 5-6 slits on top of the top pie crust for ventilation.
Gently brush the egg wash over the top crust and edges. If your oven is not ready at this point, store the assembled meat pie in the fridge to prevent the pie crust from disintegrating (the butter in the dough melts quickly at room temperature).
Bake the pie in a preheated 400F oven for 20 minutes, until the edges of the pie crust turn golden brown. Then, reduce heat to 350F, and bake for another 40 minutes until the rest of the top crust is golden brown. Remove the pie pan from the oven and let it cool at room temperature for at least 1 hour. Serve warm.
The ground beef meat pie with a flaky puff pastry double crust pie is filled with delicious hearty ground beef (minced beef) cooked with vegetables and seasonings. It is the ultimate comfort food to make, it is easy to prepare meal can be made ahead and is freezer friendly.
