Meat Pie

Prep Time 25 mins
Cook Time 50 mins
Total Time 1 hr 15 mins
Serves 3

Ingredients

  • 1/2 lb ground beef
  • 1/2 lb ground lamb
  • 1 cup almond flour or almond meal
  • 1/4 cup diced mushrooms
  • 1/4 cup diced onion
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/2 cup milk (I used hemp milk)
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 tbsp coconut aminos
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp fish sauce
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • A pack of bacon slices, baby salad greens, fresh herbs

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 °F. In a large bowl, combine the first thirteen ingredients. Mix together with your hands until thoroughly combined.
  2. Grease a pie plat or pan, then load the meat mix into it. Smooth the top, then decorate with bacon in a bacon weave (this is a good basic tutorial but do not cut the bacon in half, simply trim any long bits hanging over the sides of the pie plate/pan and tuck them under the beef mix).
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for approx 50 minutes, or until the bacon is browned and the meat underneath is firm. Remove from the oven, allow to cool for 10 minutes, then drain off the fat. Transfer the meat pie to a serving plate, arrange baby salad greens around it, and top with fresh herbs and freshly-ground black pepper.

Recipe Notes

I used a combo of beef and lamb, but if you don't have lamb or don't particularly favor its strong taste, opt for all beef.
