A hearty dish of beef and potatoes hand pies or use the same ingredients and make a rustic galette!
Beef and Potatoes Hand Pie
I’ve been thinking about making a beef & potato pie with a pastry dough for awhile, but I couldn’t decide if I should make a galette or hand pies.
Both are hearty and look somewhat rustic. You know, kind of like what Ma would cook for her cowboy after a hard day on the ranch!
That’s what I’m imagining anyway….my cowboy (aka, Professor Shaffer), chowing down on some meat and potato pies! haha.
Go with me, ok?
Cooking this meal mid week was probably a little ambitious of me.
By the time I got home from work, and cooked the filling our stomaches were making super loud feed me noises.
Then the worst thing happened. The bag of tortilla chips reserved for the Super Bowl gathering was taunting us along with avocado dip.
Alan had a few, but I forced myself to spare the chips because I was determined to make these beef and potato hand pies!
Easy Beef and Potato Hand Pies`
The whole meal is actually very easy to make.
You just need to be patient and let the dough chill before rolling it into the crust.
In the meantime, you can prepare the filling and enjoy a glass of Spanish sangria!
Hand Pies or Galette
You have the option to make 4 hand pies or if you are in a crunch for time, then make a rustic galette!
It’s also perfectly fine to make this with pre-made pie crusts or phyllo, but I REALLY suggest you make the crust.
It’s sooooo tasty, and definitely worth waiting for!
How cute would these hand pies be tucked into a lunch bag?
You know everyone will be envious of a lunch with meat and potato hand pies, especially if you add a dessert!
