Pork and Apple Pie

Let’s get extra-meaty here. Use three types of pork meat for this hearty pie, for extra variety in texture and flavors. Prepare the dough using goose fat and bring a little freshness into the equation by tossing 1/2 of diced apple into the filling.

Ingredients

1 tablespoon goose fat
⅓ cup water
12 ounces of flour
½ cup milk
3 ounces of bacon, chopped
1 onion, minced
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 pound pork mince
8 ounces of pork, cubed
salt
pepper
1 teaspoon dried oregano
½ apple, diced
1 whisked yolk

Steps

  1. Melt the goose fat with water in a pan while stirring.
  2. Add the flour and some salt to the dough mixer bowl. Shortly mix using a teaspoon, then make a well in the center and pour the melted fat.
  3. Start mixing and gradually add the milk in the process. Keep mixing until you have a dough. Let it rise for 1 hour.
  4. Heat 1-2 teaspoons of vegetable oil in a pan over medium-high heat and add the bacon. Cook and stir until translucent.
  5. Add the onion and garlic. Cook and stir for a few seconds.
  6. Add the pork mince and the cubed pork. Break the mince into smaller pieces. Cook and occasionally stir until browned.
  7. Season with salt, pepper, and dried oregano. Stir in the diced apple.
  8. Dust the work surface with flour. Flatten the dough to approximately 1/4-1/3 of an inch. Cut off 1/4-1/3 from it and set it aside.
  9. Line a 6 or 7-inch springform pan with the larger piece of the flattened dough.
  10. Fill it with the mixture, then cover with the remaining dough.
  11. Coat the top with whisked yolk and bake for 50 minutes at 350⁰F/175⁰C.
