Smoked BBQ meat and cheese pie with Tabasco Chipotle Sauce
1kg pulled smoked pork shoulder
800g chopped brisket
500g diced Texas hot link (sausage)
3 onions, diced
10 garlic cloves, crushed
50g dried chives
empanada pastry/pie crust
Tabasco Chipotle Sauce
Prepare leftover meat by pulling or chopping, keeping it chunky for texture. Slowly sweat onions in olive oil until translucent and add garlic. Add the meat to the pan, then add gravy to a saucy but solid consistency. Season with dried chives, salt and pepper. Remove from heat and cool. To build the pies, using an empanada press place a slice of burger cheese on the pastry, place 60g of the meat mix, fold and seal edges using water. To cook, best results are to deep fry, however they can also be baked. Serve with Tabasco Chipotle Sauce.
