Meat Pockets

 
  • Cooking and Prep: 20 m
  • Serves: 10
  • Contains:

Create this attractive presentation by simply filling mini pie shells with a meat filling (or any filling of your choice). The secret to this presentation is simply turning one pie over another.

 

Ingredients (11)

Meat filling

For Serving

Start Cooking

Make the Meat Filling

  1. Heat the oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Sauté onion until golden. Add remaining filling ingredients. Stir mixture frequently and cook until the meat is cooked through.

  2. Fill the pie shells with the meat mixture and bake according to the directions on the package.

     

Assemble the Meat Pockets

  1. Place one meat pie on each plate (remove from pan). Place a second pie, upside down, on top of each pie and remove foil pan. Pour mushroom sauce over meat pockets and stick a rosemary twig in each one.

     

Note:

Meat pies can be frozen before baking. Defrost before baking.

Tip:

Don't have a go-to mushroom sauce recipe? We suggest using the mushroom sauce from the Nitra cookbook's Chicken Breast with Mushroom Sauce recipe.

Variation:

Alternatively, you can mound all of the meat filling in half of the pie shells. Place a pie shell on top of each mound and lightly press the edges of the dough together. Brush with egg and bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 50 minutes.

    I love this recipe, but the written part does NOT reflect what the person in the video did with the second pie crusts. She filled the first ones and then inverted the other ones over the ones filled with meat and baked them that way, closing the up and then poured the sauce over it. I love it this way and would definitely make it this way. However, in the recipe directions, it doesn't say that. You may want to correct and change that. It is a bit misleading.

    This recipe sounds yum. I am excited to try it. But I am confused: The recipe in the video is different than the instructions on the page. Can the instructions from the video be written out as a 'variation' please? It is hard to catch all the details, as the video is very fast. Thank you!

    What is the flour for? How does it get dissolved?

    The flour will absorb all the liquid in the meat so that you don't have a runny filling. It will dissolve when cooking the meat on the stovetop.
