Patricks pie

We are lucky enough to have my Godson staying with us for the weekend.. Mr Wentworth and Vora Murley have thoroughly enjoyed having Patrick around.. Anew cuddle friend!

Patrick has an Australian Mum and a welsh/English dad.. So he must have good pie making genes in his DNA structure..

Patrick made a 6 hour journey on his own to come stay with us , so we are very proud of him. ( you know I am writing that as he will be reading this…).. Yet we are truly proud ..

I get a cooking buddy..

And get to make Pie..

Proper pie with proper meat..

And a seriously good pastry..

Th meat first.. The inbetweeny bit of the ribs .. A cut that is wonderful !! It came off a great bullock…



And was expertly browned off by Patrick..


Before adding carrots and onions.. Teaching Patrick how to not chop his fingers off.. Stock and water.. Plus fresh rosemary chopped fresh from the garden by Patrick..


Sauce flour added , water and then locked up in the pressure cooker.. (I got to do a proper science speech with Patrick for that bit!)..

The pressure cooker is great for this sort of thing as you can get a great effect in twenty minutes only..


Time for the pastry.. Awesome pastry!

600 grms plain flour.. 200 grms beef dripping.. 100 grms French unsalted butter .. And a little water.. All whizzed up in the JO processor..


Kinda rolled up and popped in the fridge to get its groove on.

Rolled out and cooled meat filling put in top.. None of that blind baking malarkey !



And Ahhh wahh lahhhh … !

Patricks pie..


Inca bella roasties in mrs Middletons oil.. And peas and green beans..


Proper pie… Delicious!
