Buriram Pie Man

Recommended Posts

Took the Mrs for lunch in the Book and Bed on Friday. Front page of the menu is a picture of a big pie. When I asked they said they get them from a Farang in Buriram. Must be the same guy. Think I'll be giving him a ring to make an order. They are fantastic.

Unless he maes the crust with lard, they're crud.

Kindly enlarge upon the above in plain English!

Here is a recipe for traditional pork pies where lard is used in the crust. Attached is a photo

Ingredients

For the filling

450g pork shoulder, (ask your butcher for the higher meat) finely chopped

55g pork fat, finely minced

55g Bacon, minced

For the pastry

450g Flour

225g lard

90 ml water

beaten egg yolks, or milk to glaze

For the jelly

300 ml water

1/2 envelope powdered gelatine, (about 6g)

Parsley, or other herbs (optional)

1. To make the pastry: put the flour in a mixing bowl and crumble in the lard. Work until beginning to come together. Add a pinch of salt and start adding the water gradually, working until the dough breaks (NB. it must not be stretchable). Let it rest for 1 hour.

2. Preheat the oven to 190C/gas 5.

3. Knead the dough on a floured surface and roll out about 5mm thick. Reserve enough pastry to make a lid. Use the larger piece of dough to line the base and sides of a 20cm plain flan ring or springform tin.

4. To make the filling: mix the pork shoulder, pork fat and bacon and season with salt and pepper. Place this mixture in the dough case, but don't squash it in.

5. Brush the edges of the dough with water and place the lid on top. Make sure this is sealed well by pressing with a fork.

6. Brush the top with egg yolk or milk. Cook in the oven for about 1 hour 30 minutes until golden brown.

7. Remove from the oven and remove the flan ring immediately. Leave the pie to cool, and then chill overnight.

8. The following day, make up the gelatine with the water according to the packet instructions. You can add parsley or other herbs if desired. Make a hole in the top of the pie and pour the gelatine in until the pie is completely filled (the meat will have shrunk so there will be plenty of space). Let the pie set in the fridge overnight (or for at least 12 hours for the best results).

They are Steve's pies in the book and bed I saw him dropping a load off the other day when I was in for lunch.

He also does brown sauce which I tried yesterday and its Exactly like HP but at 50b rather than 120b there is no way I will be buying HP again I couldn't tell the difference.

I think I will put some in HP bottles (made of plastic now) - that way, psychologically, you still think you are getting HP but you are 70 Bt better off :)

I am sure no one will be offended - but why read about "Buriram Pie Man" if you have no interest in pies or Western food ? :D
