I learned to cook by watching and helping when I could. She still teaches me by sharing tried-and-true recipes like this.—Holly Massie, Pearce, Arizona
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 40 min. Bake: 10 min. YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 large tomato, seeded and chopped
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced green onions
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 2/3 cup beef broth
  • Pastry for double-crust pie (9 inches)
  • 1 egg, beaten

Directions

  • 1. In a skillet, cook beef, tomato, onions and garlic over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in salt, red pepper flakes and thyme. In a small bowl, combine cornstarch and broth until smooth. Add to meat mixture. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from the heat. On a floured surface, roll pastry into two 12-in. squares. Cut each into four squares. Spoon about 1/4 cup meat mixture in the center of each square. Moisten edges of pastry with egg; fold over filling, forming a triangle. Press edges with a fork to seal. Place on ungreased baking sheets; prick tops with a fork. Bake at 425° for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown. Yield: 8 servings.
