Meat Pie Recipe With Pictures!!!

We're going to make this tasty meat pie!  For vegans: you can totally substitute one 15 oz can of beans and 1 lb of ground beef substitute of your choice for the 2 lbs of ground beef!  Also substitute a non-dairy cheese as well, or leave off the cheese!  Tastes great either way!

For crust
2 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1 cup shortening
1/4 cup warm water

For Filling
2 lbs ground beef
15oz can of peas
15oz can of corn
1 tsp dried onions
1 tsp oregano
1 tbsp parsley
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 large Plum/Roma  tomato
 About 8 oz Colby/Jack cheese

This recipe makes 2 open faced meat pies!  You will need a large skillet, 2- 9 inch pie pans!  Let's start with the crust!  Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.  In a large bowl, combine your flour and your salt.  Add the shortening and cut into the flour mixture.  You want it to be lumpy and NOT mixed thoroughly.  You want it  to look like this!

Next add a little of your water!  You don't want it to be too sticky so only add a little at each time!  Fold mixture and add water as needed.  You want your pie crust to look like this!  I've divided it in to 2 lumps!  One for each pie.
Perfect crust!  Nice and crumbly a perfectly moist!  Next place each lump in a pie pan.  Pat each crust in the pan and evenly shape edges. 
Pop pans in the preheated 450 degree oven for 10 minutes or until the crust is slightly brown and edges are pulling away from the pan.  Drop your oven temperature to 325 degrees after you remove your pie crusts!

While the crust is baking, let's get out our skillet!  Brown the 2 lbs of beef on low.  Drain the beef.  Add the peas, corn, onion, oregano, parsley, and Worcestershire sauce.  Mix thoroughly; stir occasionally.  Grate your cheese and cube your tomato!

Put a quarter of filling into each pie pan.  Layer a sprinkle of cheese, then the rest of the filling!  Top with tomatoes!
And then with the remaining cheese!
Pop your pies in the 325 degree oven for 20 minutes, or until the cheese melts!  Ta Da!  Your Done!!

Let cool and serve!  Each pie serves four generously!
