Step 1: Ingredients
- 1 pound venison meat, ground or minced
-Instant Mashed Potatoes
-Crisco (or other type of vegetable shortening)
-Salt and Pepper
-Instant Beef Broth Powder
-2 Cloves of Garlic
Step 2: Prepare Your Design
Sketch your design on a peice of paper, and colour code the areas so that you will know what colour goes where when it is time to paint the pie crust. Try to keep the design simple, because a crust is not the best canvas. I thought that a picture of Bambi would be befitting, seeing as it is a Venison Pie.
Step 3: Make the Crust
Step 4: Make the Filling
Dice the Onion. Heat up Frying pan and add oil. Saute onions nd venison until venison is browned. Then take the pan off the heat. Then make half of a packet of instant mashed potatoes in a medium sized pot. Instead of using water to make them, use beef broth powder to turn the water into beef broth. This will make the filling more flavourful. Once the potatoes are finished, add the venison and onions, and mix well. Press the two cloves of garlic and add them to the pot also. Season with salt and pepper, and mix well.
