Inside The Kitchen: The Maltese Torta (Meat Pie)
Ok guys! This one LOOKS like it’s a lot of steps… but it really isn’t. I just took a TON of pictures so you can see exactly what needs to be done. Since it is so picture heavy, click on the continue reading link below to see the recipe for the Maltese Torta (meat pie).
- Basic Pie Dough (I posted this recipe yesterday)
- 1 small onion
- 1 teaspoon curry
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 can sweet peas drained
- 1 can corned beef
- pepper (no salt)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees
Step 1: Chop up an onion and cook over medium heat with 2 tablespoons of oil until translucent.
Step 2: Add the drained peas and the corned beef and mix.
Step 3: Cut your dough mixture in half. This pie has a top and bottom. Roll out as flat as you can.
Step 4: Place in pie pan and fill with meat mixture.
Step 5: Roll out last half of dough mixture and cover pie.
Step 6: Cut off the excess edges of the pie.
Step 7: Fork all around the center of the pie to allow steam to release. Press down with fork around rim to close up the two halves of the dough and then press down with you finger for decoration. Cook 35 to 40 minutes to brown the bottom of the pan.
