    Smile The Pie Thread

    Last night was pie night thanks to Farrang Reds suggestion.

    I haven't made a pie since uni and this is the first time I've used ready made pastry. It was bloody easy and the store bought pastry really took the ball ache out of the whole process.

    I wanted to make a few pies, the first one is a meat and potato pie.

    Ingredients.
    500g Diced Beef
    2 Sheets Puff Pastry
    1 Onion
    2 Potato's
    1 1/2 Cups (375ml) Beef Stock
    2 tbs Oil
    1 1/2 Tbs Gravy powder
    1 1/2 Tbs Brown sugar
    1 Tbs Dried mixed herbs
    1 tsp Paprika
    1 tsp Ground Cumin
    2 Cloves of Garlic
    1 tsp Massaman Curry Paste
    2 tsp Soy Sauce

    So I started off by sticking on the beef stock on and then browning off the mince and onions.



    Then in that little bowl you can see I mixed the gravy powder, brown sugar, paprika, cumin, garlic, massaman and soy sauce. Then I stirred that into the beef stock and then mixed that into the minced beef.



    And thats that one pretty much done.Then I'm just going to leave that simmer away whilst I make the next filling.

    Chicken & Mushroom Pie

    Filling,
    1 medium green pepper, sliced
    50g/20z button mushrooms
    10g/ ˝oz butter
    400g chicken
    1 egg, beaten

    Sauce
    25g/1oz butter25g/1oz flour
    150-200ml/6-7fl oz chicken stock
    2-3 tbsp double cream
    squeeze of lemon juice


    So I started off the same way, put the chicken stock on.





    Also I just par steamed some potatoes to go into the meat pie.





    And then blanched off the peppers for the chicken pie.




    Then I sauteed off the mushrooms and in a new pot made a ruee with the butter and flour and added the cream.

    Then in the background I browned off the chicken.

    Then added the peppers, mushrooms and chicken to the cream sauce and seasoned with salt and pepper.



    Then i just let them simmer for a bit, but not too long as they are going to finish in the oven.

    The 3rd Pie was easy because the wife had already made the filling the day before.

    Chicken Tikka Massala Pie.

    She cooked it by following the instructions I left for her on this thread. http://teakdoor.com/the-kitchen/76651-asian-home-gourmet-3.html (Asian Home Gourmet)




    Now its pie time. I'm glad that I bought all three types of puff pastry that I could find.

    The best one was the pack of 12 single sheets from Makro, 125bt/6 pies.

    2nd best was the roll of pasty (pic above) from Foodland, 60bt/2 pies.

    And the one to avoid is the 35bt single sheets from Foodland. They're way too thick. They are probably good though if your going to do one big pie and just have the top crust.

    Here the pies are going together nicely. This is a Chicken Tikka one being made.



    I had a good little boobie system working so that I'd know which is which.

    1 Boobie = Meat Pie
    2 Boobies = Chicken and Mushroom
    3 Boobies = Chicken Tikka

    Then into a pre heated oven of 220c I put the pies in for about 25-30 mins, and they came out looking like this.



    The boobie system worked out better than I could have planned. It hadn't occurred to me that this being puff pastry they would rise up and turn into proper little titties. So obvious its genius.

    So I served that up with chips, peas and gravy. They were bloody great.



    So good in fact that I just cooked up another for lunch today. I've got left over fillings in the fridge, the pastry takes a few mins to defrost and then it takes 2 mins to make a fresh pie.

    These are so easy to make and the fillings possibilities are endless.

    Question 1 - I've never been to Makro here, can anyone go? Need a card like I did in the UK? Where is it?

    Question 2 - If these pies are as good as they look, why not teach your chef and have a pie night at your gaff. I was hoping you did the Beef Bourguignon Pie that was mentioned in the other thread, that sounds delicious and I might have a go at that one.

    Yep anyone can go, there is a card system but I'm not sure what it does. I don't have one and the sales people at the desk don't fall over them selves to give me one.

    We had a Beef & Guinness pie on the menu before but it didn't sell to well.

    They're all over the place. The one I go to is out of town next to my house but I think there's one on Rama 3 or 4.

    It's a member club. You can sign up and use the card immediately.
    Amazing place really but not everything is a bargain. The fresh and frozen food is quite extensive but don't expect a good selection of dairy products or a great bakery.

    FP, I think it should be a criminal offence to post mouth watering pictures on a thread without issuing some kind of warning notice.

    Still, the damage is done and you will have to pay. I know roughly where you live and my nose can close down the last kilometre or so . I give you fair warning that unless you leave one of them thar pies , in a box, outside your front gate, you will definately be broken into some time this week and Ninja won't stop me !!

    Alternatively, to save me looking at FR's thread in my nervous state, you can tell me where you got the ready made pastry . Be honest, you don't really want me laying about the place with a sledgehammer do you ?

    Ah.....sorry. False alarm. Re read and see you got the pastry at Makro. Hope they have it at every branch as I'll be on a mission until I get my hands on some !

    Isn't it traditional to use a roller on them?

    I don't know, I don't think so because its got some kind of elastic memory to it. I tried steching out the smaller pieces but it always went back to the same shape.

    Yeah sorry about that, I'd already put mine the oven though before I started the thread so I was ok.

    I love making pies, and totally agree, ready made pastry tastes good enough, and makes it damn easy.

    They only sell frozen puff pastry. Nothing else. And it was great, and will probably be great again for lunch tomorrow.

    I didn't mean a pie on the menu, I mean a pie night, well advertised on a week night, pies of different types with mash and mushy peas, onion gravy.

    I've seen it work wonders in bringing weekday punters in some markets.

    A pie night does sound bloody nice. I'll have to suggest that we do it on my night off though other wise that will be 2 pie nights a week for me.

    I thought I started a pie thread. it was about a chicken based pie what I made a couple of months back - with ready made pastry.

    I can't find the thread here now, maybe i dreamt it. I would like to think it was the inspiration for this thread but I dont see any mention so I suppose it cant have been
