Hand pies are pretty awesome things. This recipe came about when a friend was coming over to catch up on a TV show and we were going to make dinner first. I made a quick pie crust just in case, cause with a pie crust in the fridge you just feel safe. At the grocery store we were kind of wandering, when I said "whatever we buy, we can just toss in some pie crust". This is what we ended up with!
A quick homemade buttermilk ranch to dip the meat-tarts in.
Beef with cabbage and a little bit of cumin.
Make sure you roll the pie crust out really thin!
A fork to seal the edges.
Some egg yolk and water helped the pies brown nicely.
My favorite pie crust recipe.
The ranch was 1 cup buttermilk, 1/4 cup mayo, 1/4 cup sour cream, handful cilantro, 1 bunch scallions, teaspoon mustard powder, teaspoon smoked paprika, 2 teaspoons pepper, 1 clove garlic.
