these were delicious. the top crust was flaky and buttery while the bottom crust had a crisp, almost crunchy texture with enough structural rigidity to allow for optimal hand to mouth action. no squidgy bottom here @TheCookie. Pro tip: reheat at 375 for twenty minutes to get it nice and piping hot. thanks again @EattheWorldLA.
and to answer your burning questions:
yes, i used tomato sauce (aka ketchup) because i’m fancy
no, i didn’t wait for the pies to cool off
yes, i burned the roof of my mouth
yes, i would do it again.
if you’re a fan of sweet and savory this one is for you. this reminded me of eating butter chicken, pizza and naan all in one. it was choice, mate.
steak and cheese
eaten with some ketchup this is the kiwi version of a philly cheesesteak.
steak and onions
the steak was a tad dry but it wasn’t very noticeable with the rich and fatty gravy.
