How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 400°F.

  • Stir the flour and salt into a large bowl. Cut the lard and butter into the mixture. Mix together with your fingers until the mixture is crumbly. Add egg, and 2 tablespoons of ice cold water at a time, blending the dough together with your fingers. When enough water has been added, the pastry should leave the bowl fairly clean. Place the pastry in a plastic food bag and leave it in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to "rest".

  • Brown the meat over medium heat and drain the fat off well. Crumble into pea-size pieces.

  • Combine the meat plus all the remaining ingredients, and spices. Simmer on low heat for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. It should be thick, but moist too. If the concoction gets too dry, add some more red wine.

  • Roll the dough out very thin and cut pastry into 4-5 inch circles (I use a bowl turned upside down.)

  • Only put meat on one half (staying away from the edges.)

  • Now fold the other side over, and pinch the sides together. (Use water to moisten if needed.)

  • Line the pies into a large pan. Cook for about 30 minutes. When crust is golden brown, it is ready to be taken out of the oven.
