Meat pie "Pastel de Carne"

March 18th, 2019 | main dishes

In Spain, meatloaf is often prepared in a puff pastry crust. This recipe comes from northern Spain, more precisely from Galicia, a meat pie with raisins and pine nuts. The raisins soaked in sherry provide a juicy-aromatic taste.

Meat pie

The Spanish meat pie tastes well if cold or warm, so it is also suitable for a picnic or brunch. As a side dish a fresh green salad – just delicious.
