The Long Track Pantry's Greek pork pie

Method

  • Preheat oven to 220°C fan forced (240°C normal).
  • Combine the pork mince with the egg, chilli flakes, lemon zest, ¼ cup each coriander and parsley, 2 tbsp chopped mint, 1 cup feta, a little salt, quite a bit of ground pepper and the cumin until well incorporated. 
  • Lightly brush 5-6 sheets of filo with oil (keeping the rest of the filo under a damp towel) and line a lightly oiled pie dish, hanging pastry edges over the side. 
  • Then spoon in the pork mixture, pushing into the corners, and fold over the filo. Top with 2 extra lightly oiled filo sheets and tuck in the edges. Brush the top with more oil and cook in the oven for about 30 mins until crisp and golden brown. 
  • Combine the yoghurt with the remaining fresh herbs and set aside. 
  • To make the Greek salad, combine the tomatoes, capsicum, lettuce, olives and remaining feta with a splash of oil, red wine vinegar and seasonings. 
  • When ready, remove the pie from the oven and allow to cool for about 10 mins, before slicing and serving with a dollop of herb yoghurt and the Greek salad on the side.
