    Chazzer's pork pie surprise!

    Went to the market yesterday, bought some pig fat and pork shoulder...

    How to make a pork pie:

    450 gm plain flour.
    1 egg yolk.
    175 gm lard.
    100 ml milk.
    Pinch of salt.



    Flour, pinch of salt and egg yolk into a large mixing bowl.
    Heat the milk and lard in a pan, low heat at first then bring rapidly to the boil.
    Pour over flour and egg yolk, bring together with a wooden spoon.
    Kneed for about five minutes, place in clingfilm and rest for about 20 minutes.


    About 900 gm pork shoulder (bacon optional)



    Cut into small pieces or blitz in a blender.



    Construct the pies, egg wash and place in the fridge for about 15 minutes to rest.

    Pre-heat the oven to 200 c.

    Place in oven and cook for 20 minutes and then turn temp down to 180 c, cook for a further 40-50 minutes or until golden brown.




    Now, here's the surprise...






    Later on today, I will add some gelatine (if there's any left!)

    Chaz should rename his dish to something more descriptive, like eye of the tiger pie.

    That'd be a truly great pie if you'd used a proper egg. Chicken.

    Rare pink pork?

    Not in this country. Pastry looks the deal though.

    Seeing as Necron is not a purveyor of pork pies...

    The pork is pink because I cured it!

    The jelly stuff is made from pigs trotters, Melton Mowbury pies do any way.

    Addicted to Melton Mowbray pork pies at the moment, nice with a dollop of mustard.





    Not in to all this egg in the middle mallarky.
