Meat Pie with Mozzarella Cheese

Meat Pie with Mozzarella Cheese

I made this for my daughter's birthday.
Even though this meat pie is easy to make, it looks so elegant. The rich cheese and ground meat go very well together.

Ingredients: 4 servings

Ground meat
200 g
Onion, minced
1
Garlic, minced
1 clove
Mozzarella cheese
1 package
Frozen pie crust
2 sheets
Salt and pepper
a small amount
Soy sauce
1 teaspoon
Ketchup
3 tablespoons
Red wine
50 ml
Olive oil
1 tablespoon

Steps

1. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan and sauté the garlic and onion. Once the onion becomes translucent, add the ground meat and cook it thoroughly.
2. Add the salt, pepper, soy sauce, and ketchup. Once the flavors have blended, pour in the red wine, cover with a lid, and let it steam cook to evaporate the liquid.
3. Place the frozen pie crust on the bottom of a pie dish and poke it with a fork. Put the meat on top of the crust and top with pieces mozzarella cheese.
4. Place thinly cut strips of the crust over the pie in a lattice pattern. Bake for 20 minutes in an oven preheated to 200℃.
5. Check it after it has finished baking and if necessary, bake it in for a little longer.
6. I made a really extravagant birthday menu.

Story Behind this Recipe

For my daughter's birthday, I wanted to make a pie using mozzerella, her favorite cheese, so I came up with this.
