Ingredients

  • CRUST:

  • cups all-purpose flour

  • ½

    teaspoon salt

  • 6

    tablespoons chilled solid vegetable shortening cut ½" pieces

  • 3

    tablespoons olive oil

  • 3

    tablespoons orange juice

  • 4

    tablespoons ice water more or less

  • FILLING:

  • 2

    tablespoons olive oil

  • 1

    pound trimmed lean leg of lamb cut ½" pieces (or 2 lbs lamb shoulder chops, boned, and fat trimmed)

  • 2

    medium sweet onions halved, thinly

  • sliced (such as Vidalia or Maui)

  • 2

    garlic cloves minced

  • ½

    cup dry white wine

  • ¼

    teaspoon crumbled saffron threads

  • 4

    ounces sobrasada casings removed, and finely chopped, see * Note (or sweet Spanish chorizo)

  • 1

    large egg beaten to blend

Directions

* Note: Sobrasada is available from La Española (310-539-0455; donajuana.com) or from La Tienda (888-472-1022; tienda.com). For Crust: Blend flour and salt in processor. Add shortening; using on/off turns, cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse meal. Gradually add olive oil, orange juice, and 3 tablespoons ice water; process mixture until moist clumps form, adding more water by teaspoonfuls if dough is dry. Gather dough together; divide in half. Form each dough half into smooth ball; flatten each into disk. Place on work surface; cover with plastic wrap. Let stand at room temperature while making filling. For Filling: Heat oil in heavy large skillet over high heat. Sprinkle lamb with salt and pepper. Add lamb to skillet and sauté until brown, about 4 minutes. Transfer to bowl. Add onions and garlic to skillet and sauté 2 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and cook until onions are very tender, stirring occasionally, about 15 minutes. Return lamb to skillet. Add wine and saffron; simmer until liquid is reduced by half, about 4 minutes. Stir in sobrasada and sauté 2 minutes. Cool filling completely. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Roll out each dough disk between 2 sheets of parchment paper to 12-inch round. Transfer 1 dough round to ungreased rimmed baking sheet. Spread lamb filling over dough round, leaving 2-inch plain border. Cover filling with second dough round. Roll up edges, pressing together to seal well. Using small sharp knife, cut small X in center of top crust to allow steam to escape. Brush crust with beaten egg. Bake pie until crust is golden brown, about 35 minutes. Let cool 15 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature. This recipe yields 8 appetizer or 6 main-course servings.
