Meat pie with exotic flavors

Production: 4 – Serving
Preparation: 20 Minutes
Cooking: 60 Minutes

What could be more ‘traditional’ than the meat pie? With vegetable soup it is found on the tables of most Western families at Christmas.

There are probably as many recipes as there are regions on a world map. Made of Beef, pork, veal, chicken, turkey or venison, the meat pie is often associated with festive occasions and large family meals.

We offer you a very simple version, but overflowing with subtle flavors that will surprise your taste buds and delight your appetite. We get these flavors from a wonderful blend of spices, the Ras El Hanout which combines 24 of them in a perfectly balanced mix. We also added a small amount of wild pepper from Madagascar for a little spicy touch.

Note: The RAS ELHANOUT is a complex mixture and has no equivalent. It is therefore difficult to replace in this recipe. Any good spice merchant should have it in-store or by special order. (Small tip: check out the merchants from North Africa since Ras El Hanout is originaly a Morocan spice mix)

    You really make it appear really easy along with your presentation however I find this matter to be really one thing that I believe I’d never understand. It sort of feels too complicated and very large for me. I am taking a look ahead on your subsequent submit, I’ll try to get the hang of it!
