Ghana Meat Pie 18 Steps

  • Step 1

    Add flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl and mix well.

  • Step 2

    Add cubed butter into your flour mixture and using your hand or a pastry cutter, crumble butter into flour until it resembles a crumbly dough. You can place in food processor and pulse until you get crumbly dough.

  • Step 3

    Slowly add your cold water to your dough and mix either using hand until it just comes together.

  • Step 4

    Cover with plastic wrap and place in fridge for at least 30 minutes.

  • Step 5

    Make your meat pie filling by adding your ground beef in a pan along with your diced onions.

  • Step 6

    Cook until brown and drain any fat if necessary and season with onion powder, garlic powder, black pepper, Cameroon pepper (or other spicy ground pepper) and salt to taste.

  • Step 7

    Add cornstarch to your beef and mix until distributed, add your broth and stir until reduced and thickened.

  • Step 8

    Add a teaspoon of curry powder, mix well and set aside until cooled completely.

  • Step 9

    To assemble pies, take dough out of fridge.

  • Step 10

    Dough may still be a bit crumbly but this is okay. Divide dough into about 8 even pieces.

  • Step 11

    Make egg wash by mixing 1 egg with 1 tablespoon of water.

  • Step 12

    Roll out pieces of dough and use a large cutter or even a small bowl to cut out a circle from your rolled piece of dough. If your dough it sticking to your rolling pin, use flour to help you out.

  • Step 13

    Take your cut out circle, roll it once more to form an elongated oval, brush edges with egg wash and place 1 1/2 to 2 tablespoons of filling in the middle of your dough. Fold over your dough to form semi circles and use your fingers to press the edges of the semi circle and seal your pies. You can shape your pies slightly by pressing around the edges (or cutting off irregular pieces) to make them smooth.

  • Step 14

    While you are forming your pies, make sure to cover the mound of pie dough with a damp paper towel or damp tea towel.

  • Step 15

    Use a fork to poke the top of your pies to create vents so they don't open up while baking.

  • Step 16

    Repeat this with your remaining pie dough, egg wash and filling until you have used up all the scraps and formed all your pies.

  • Step 17

    When you have assembled all the pies, place them on a parchment lined baking sheet, brush the tops with egg wash and bake at 415°F for 20-25 minutes. Check pies after 15 minutes to see how they are browning and determine if they need 5 or 10 additional minutes.

  • Step 18

    Let them cool slightly and enjoy your pies.
