    What do you do with the left over meat from a BBQ? Well, you chop it up and use it in meat pies, that's what you do. Now, this is not a primal recipe, but I am way under my weight limit, so I am not worried. Let's get started!
    Prepare your dough. I do it the old fashioned way and just add stuff as I need it, but I started with 1 cup of all purpose flour. Here are the ingredients:

    Coconut oil

    Amounts: Flour, about 1 cup with more added as needed. Butter 1/4 stick, equal amount of coconut oil. Pinch of salt, three finger pinch of sugar, dry yeast (1/4 packet). My yeast was also from the freezer, stored 5 years and still kicking. I rolled my dough out to make one small and one large meat pie. You will be looking at the large meat pie because the small meat pie missed the camera. I added the butter and oil with hot water, melted. Then, I kneaded the dough with the yeast for at least 5 minutes until soft. Place dough in bowl to rise in warm place. Form as needed, replace and allow to rise again. Now use for meat pie...

    Notice how flaky and awesome the crust is! It's not dense, and it is not chewy. It is a very well balanced meat pie, and the dough is super tasty.

    Le Beans?

    I used little pearl onions, great northern canned beans, bacon (optional), regular molasses, pure maple syrup, and water. These beans are without a doubt, award winning. Because I say so.

    I cooked the beans in a crock pot for about 6 hours, starting off for the first hour on 'high' and then switching to 'low' for 4 hours and finally 'warm' for the remainder of time. I stirred perhaps 3 times, that's all. Again, exact amounts varies. I usually dump 1 large can of beans in after rinsing, dump some water in, maybe a cup or so, then 1/2 cup of molasses and 1/4 cup maple syrup roughly. The rest you can figure out.
