    hi, i had a question about the shortening. i cant seem to find it in nyc in the groceries. is it a substitute for the shortening that we can use in this recepie, like doubling the amount of butter? or any that will give us the same results as you gotten?

    The shortening or lard is the key ingredient to the flakiness of the beef pie but if you cannot get it I guess you would have to use the butter to substitute for the shortening.

    Just remember if you use butter, the pies would not be as flaky.

    I love you…. keep up the good work…. The amount of commess that happening in my kitchen since I came upon your site as I trying to introduce these people to good Trini food. Still trying to perfect the dhalpuri roti and failed twice now but going to try the beef pies today. I guess the dough in this recipe does not have to rest ,right?? So far away from home, sometimes your recipes bring tears to my eyes.
    God Bless keep it coming.

    Can you store these in the freezer? Also if you we to all whole wheat flour to the dough, how much would you add? (kind of a health freak lol)

      The dough can be frozen for later. Seeing that my wife made this for safety she says that she would use 1/2 cup whole wheat and 1 1/2 cup all purpose flour. Do have fun and please tell me the results :)

    I did not have ground beef but figured I could substitute another filling so I used cheese. Made them this morning for my family for breakfast especially as recipe is simple so knew it would be quick. As a trini still living in Trinidad I often get to buy beef, chicken, cheese, etc pies so I can definitely say that as my first attempt at making my very own homemade this was a great success.

    I added 1 teaspoon of salt and a little oregano to the dough for a slight flavour that went well with the cheese. Thank you, I will be using this recipe to make lots of different pies, both savoury and sweet.
