Method

Note:- Pork pie seasonings with cure are supplied as split packs. Both packs must be used in the above recipe mixed together in a 1:1 ratio, spice pack: cure pack.

Please ensure that the seasoning and the cure pack are mixed together evenly, before adding the meat.

Method – Using a mixer

Place the minced meat in the mixing bowl, add the rusk and seasoning. Mix to disperse well.
Gradually add cold water. Mix until absorbed and the desired texture is obtained.
Leave to cure for 1 hour at room temperature: fill into pie shells as required.

Filling

In this recipe, the assumption has been made that the weight of filling will be equal to the total weight of pastry (i.e shell and lid).

Baking

The pies can be glazed prior to and after baking using Lucas Pastry Glaze – 20053266.
