Ghanaian Meat Pie

Listen!! This is very simple to make and it requires just a couple of ingredients. Growing up, my dad would buy freshly baked meat pie from SFC (Southern Fried Chicken – I think they’ve closed shop now) every Sunday after church for us. Good old days.

Now, I don’t need to even buy my meat pie from elsewhere as I can bake it myself. There is actually no particular recipe for making the pastry for this meat pie.

On a visit to Julie’s end (one of my very good friends), she baked me some delicious meat pie. I watched her steps and decided to share it on here. I will be trying it out soon. If you do give it a shot, I’d love to know how it went!



  • minced meat
  • chopped onions
  • seasoning
  • salt
  • chopped green peppers
  • cold butter or margarine
  • milk
  • Flour
  • nutmeg


  1. Add a little oil to a frying pan and allow it to heat up. Add the minced meat and onions and allow to cook until brown.
  2. Add seasoning and salt. Remove from heat and leave to cool.
  3. Stir in chopped green peppers.

Making the Pastry

  1. Mix your dry ingredients (flour, salt and nutmeg)
  2. Add butter to the flour and mix with your fingers
  3. knead dough just sufficiently to bind together


Check out these pictures for a step by step guide on how to make the pie.

Kneed the dough
Use your rolling pin to flatten out the dough
Use any shape to cut out the pastry and fill it with the prepared minced meat. Brush milk on the edges of the cut dough.
Fold over one side of the dough to cover the other half.
Use the tip of your fingers or a fork to close it up.
Arrange your masterpiece on a pan lined with a baking sheet and stick it in the oven for about 30mins or till your instincts or ancestors tell you it’s ready.
Ready to be feasted on. Don’t forget to take it with a bottle of any chilled drink of your choice.

I do hope you give this a try. Let me know how it goes in the comment section.

With love
