This was fun to make and it turned out delicious! I'll definitely be making these again some time.
dough was extremely dry, will never make this again
I followed the recipe exactly as it was written. The meat was awesome! Very close to the pockets sold in the city. Reminds me my college days- BKLYN. However, I had some difficulty with the crust. I stirred in the water and egg but the dough remained crumbly. I added a lot more water but ran out of time so I quickly threw in another egg, which held it together. Because of this, the crust was not light and flakey. It was rather heavy and dense. I am not an expert so I am not sure what the appropriate remedy would have been for the crust. I will def try this again with modifications to the crust.
Loved the filling!! Had a problem with the "pocket"; even tho I am a pie maker, it just didn't work well for me. I will try the recipe again with my own crust recipe. Thanks for the trip down memory lane, devaudio.
Great recipe... the trick to a good dough is to use ice cold water so it will hold together... The meat mixture was really tasty and very NYC.
These were delicious! I did make some alterations, however. I added some seasoned potatoes while the beef was simmering, instead of bread crumbs. I also added some sharp cheddar cheese and my husband LOVED them!!! Totally making these again!!
