Ground Pork Pie

Ground Pork Pie


  • Preheat oven to 170* C (338* F) Fan.
  • Place a pot over medium to high heat.
  • Add some olive oil and the onions. Sauté.
  • Add the carrots, celery and sugar. Sauté and let the vegetables caramelize for 4-5 minutes, until golden.
  • Add the ground pork and break it up with a wooden spoon. Sauté for 3-4 minutes until it browns nicely.
  • Add the tomato paste and sauté to remove any bitterness.
  • Add the bouillon cube and beer.
  • Sauté for 15-20 minutes, until the mixture dries out.
  • Remove from heat and add the rosemary and thyme for aroma.
  • Add the grated cheese and mix. The cheese will help the filling hold together.
  • Let it cool a little and add the egg, salt and pepper. Stir and set aside.
  • Brush a 25x35 cm baking pan with olive oil.
  • Spread 2 sheets of phyllo dough in the baking pan. Each one should cover half of the pan.
  • Drizzle with some olive oil. If using a pastry brush do not let it touch the pastry.
  • Repeat the same process with half of the sheets of phyllo dough to create the bottom crust of the pie. Drizzle each sheet with olive oil when adding.
  • Add the filling and spread evenly in the baking pan.
  • Cover with the remaining sheets of phyllo dough in the same way as before, drizzling each sheet with olive oil.
  • Roll the sides of the phyllo inward, creating a border. Drizzle the border and surface of the phyllo.
  • Score the pie in to 12 pieces and place on the highest rack in the oven.
  • Bake for 45-50 minutes, until golden and crunchy.
  • When ready, remove from oven and allow it to cool for 10 minutes before cutting in to it.
