A classmate of mine from high school asked me the recipe of the pasty that I posted on my wall on Facebook. I was thinking of emailing the recipe to her privately. Well, I notice another classmate of mine asking who made the pasty, so I just then decided to share the whole recipe with you guys. The recipe, its easy and simple to make. You can even put any veggies that your family like.
For some people they might prefer store bough pie crust. But being here in the Philippines, we pretty much make our own pie crust. I will share with you my pie crust recipe that I used.
Ingredients for the filling :
- A kilo of ground beef
- 1-2 onions
- 2 stalks celery
- 3 potatoes, cubet
- 2 carrots, cubed
- 1 small singkamas (jicama or turnip), cubed
- Good amount of pepper
Pie crust ingredients:
- 1 1/2 cups all-purposed flour
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1/2 cup (or a stick) chilled & diced the butter (I put my butter in the freezer for 10-15 minutes before using)
- 1/4 cup shortening (same procedure with the butter)
- 3-4 tablespoons of ice water
***To prepare the crust. Mix all the ingredients together, for me I used my hands so that I can feel the consistency. Lightly flour the surface where the place to roll the dough. Cut the dough into 3 rounds. Using the rolling pin, roll the though until it reach to the thickness you desire. Then put the filling on the one side of the dough for the other to fold on top on it. Use fork to press the edge of the dough or start folding just a tiny edge from one side to the other. Like what I have on my picture. Cut a slit like an inch on top of the pie to vent. Brushed with beaten egg on the pasty before baking. Bake at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for an hour. Some use ketchup for dipping.
Thank you for asking shi. I hope you like the recipe. Let me know.
Have fun making and eating!
