Pork and turkey luncheon pie


You'll need

1 pig’s trotter 1 onion, coarsely chopped 1 bay leaf 4 sprigs of thyme 600 gm shredded roast turkey leg 1 clove of garlic, finely chopped 2 golden shallots, finely chopped ¼ cup finely chopped flat-leaf parsley leaves 60 ml (¼ cup) red wine vinegar 40 ml dry white wine 750 gm minced pork 50 gm shelled pistachio kernels 1 egg, lightly beaten with 1 tbsp milk To serve: mustard fruits and green salad   Shortcrust pastry 675 gm (4½ cups) plain flour 340 gm butter, chilled and coarsely chopped ¼ tsp fresh finely grated nutmeg 1 egg and 1 egg yolk, lightly beaten

Method

  • 01
  • For shortcrust pastry, process flour, butter, nutmeg and ½ tsp sea salt in a food processor until mixture resembles crumbs. Add eggs and ¼-1/3 cup iced water and process until mixture just comes together, then turn onto a lightly floured work surface and knead until smooth. Cover in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 hours.
  • 02
  • Place pig’s trotter, onion, bay leaf and thyme in a large saucepan and cover with cold water. Cover and simmer over low heat for 1 hour or until meat is tender. Using a slotted spoon, remove trotter from cooking liquid and when cool enough to handle, using your fingers, coarsely shred, discarding skin, bone and sinew. Strain cooking liquid through a muslin-lined sieve, place 800ml in a saucepan and simmer over medium-high heat for 30 minutes or until reduced by half, then set aside.
  • 03
  • Meanwhile, combine turkey, trotter meat, garlic, shallots, parsley, vinegar, wine, minced pork and pistachios in a bowl, season to taste, cover in plastic wrap and set aside.
  • 04
  • Preheat oven to 180C. Roll out two-thirds of the pastry on a lightly floured work surface to 4mm thick and line a lightly greased 22cm-diameter springform pan, allowing pastry to overhang. Spoon turkey mixture into pan and, using your fingers, press into an even layer. Roll remaining pastry to 4mm thick to form a 22cm-diameter pie lid. Brush overhanging pastry with egg wash, place lid on top, then, using the tines of a fork, press to seal. Trim edges of pastry with a sharp knife and pierce a small hole in the centre of lid. Brush with egg wash and bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour or until golden. Cool to room temperature.
  • 05
  • Using a funnel, pour a little reserved cooking liquid into pie hole, allowing liquid to absorb before adding more (you may not need it all). Refrigerate for 1 hour or until chilled, then remove from pan. Serve at room temperature with mustard fruits and salad.
