It’s inevitable, I make my Sweet and Sour Pepper Beef and I end up with leftovers. This is awesome except, usually there are not enough leftovers to make a meal yet too many to toss in the trash (the guilt, the guilt, I cannot throw away food). For this reason I keep pie crusts in my fridge. You see, meat + pie crust= delightful treat.
You can pretty much make hand pies out of anything. Meat, Cheese, Fruit, Jam, Jelly…the world is your oyster. It’s a delicious way to repurpose leftover roasted meats and stews. Of course you could totally make your won pie cuts too.
