My husband was having a garage sale on Saturday,
so I made him this "portable" lunch.
Teriyaki hand pies were perfect for him to eat while walking around outside.
Teriyaki Hand Pies
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup reduced - sodium soy sauce
1 garlic clove, minced
1 tablespoon ginger, grated fresh
1 lb. ground pork or chicken
3 green onions, chopped
2 medium carrots, shredded
1 tube (16.3 oz) extra-large refrigerated buttermilk biscuits (8 biscuits)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees and spray a cookie sheet with non stick cooking spray.
In a microwave safe bowl, combine brown sugar, soy sauce, garlic and ginger. Heat in microwave oven on high for 2-3 minutes or until mixture is thick and reduced to 1/4 cup.
In the meantime, cook pork or chicken in a 12 inch skillet for 5 minutes or until no longer pink, breaking up meat as it is cooking. Skim off and discard fat.
Add green onions and carrots to meat in skillet and cook 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in soy sauce mixture and remove skillet from heat.
Roll out each unbaked biscuit into a 6 inch round. Spoon a generous 1/3 cup meat mixture on half of each biscuit round to 1/2 inch from edge. Fold dough over filling to make a half moon. With the tines of a fork, firmly press edges together and seal. Cut two slits in the top of each pie to allow steam to escape.
Transfer to a prepared cookie sheet and bake for 13-15 minutes or until a deep golden color.
I seriously wish you could have smelled this meat mixture!
The soy sauce and the ginger with that brown sugar was just amazing.
This is one of those meals that you get to play with your food. Rolling out the biscuits, filling them with the yummy teriyaki pork mixture and using your fork to seal the edges.
Nice and full and don't forget the steam vents.....
Hand pies are so fun to make and this teriyaki version is so flavorful! Why don't you try this recipe......... and play with your food?
