In old timey days, two bottles of cider was enough to make one completely pie-eyed
. Well, in this recipe, it won't even take one! This delicious "pie-eyed" pastry is stuffed with "drunken" pulled pork which is slow roasted in hard apple cider. We're upping the old timey ante by turning the classic British meat pie on its head, by substituting the traditional round shell for a tantalizing EYE shape, whose interior is porked out
with our cider roasted meat. This Eye of Pi looks great and tastes even better, especially when garnished with the delicious hard cider au jus as a dipping sauce!Be warned
: The construction of this pastry is very futsy and not for the faint of heart. But if you've got some time to spare as well as a death wish, this pie is for you! Some extra hard cider for the belly during construction is highly recommended!
