  • 12 oz
    ground lamb (or beef, pork, chicken)
  • 1 medium
    onion, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp
    beef broth (if using chicken, use chicken broth)
  • 1 tsp
    worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 tsp
    salt, or to taste
  • 1/4 tsp
    black pepper, or to taste
  • 1
    pastry for double-crust pie
  • 1
    egg white, slightly beaten



  1. Cook meat in a large skillet over medium heat until evenly brown; drain fat. Remove from heat and stir in onion, broth, and Worcestershire sauce. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. On a lightly floured surface, roll pastry out to 1/8" thickness. Cut into 6" rounds. Place about 1/2 cup filling on one half of each. Fold the pastry over the filling and crimp edges to seal.
  3. Brush lightly with beaten egg white, and cut three slits in the top to allow for steam to escape. Place on baking sheet.
  4. Bake in a preheated 350-degree oven for 30 to 35 minutes or until golden brown.
