The Worst Pies in London

Well, not the worst pies by any stretch, and not in London either. Inspired by a meat pie that my Mom made to have over my time spent in Pennsylvania at Christmas, I whipped this up last night. It was tasty, but I went too thick on the dough, which I think I would have preferred thinner.

For the crust:
  • One double batch of the crusty pie dough from Bittman's "How to Cook Everything"
For the filling:
  • One NY strip, minced into small (~1cm) cubes
  • One medium sized veal kidney, likewise minced
  • One medium onion, chopped
  • One medium apple, minced
  • Salt, pepper, thyme and a little flour.
And that's about it -- just seal up the pie, and coat with a light egg-wash. Bake at 350 for about 90 minutes. As I said, next time I am going to go easier on the dough, and perhaps add carrots and/or peas.
