The recipe, which Gaines made on the first episode of her new cooking show, Magnolia Table, is a classic Lebanese meat pie, and it'll satisfy all of your tastebuds. In a large bowl, mix your choice of ground meat, dried onions, garlic powder and onion powder thoroughly. In a skillet, heat canola oil on medium-high heat and brown the ground meat mixture, making sure to chop the meat into small pieces while browning until cooked through. Drain any excess oil and juices from skillet. The star of any meat pie recipe is obviously the meat, and we're making this Cajun classic recipe with ground beef, as per tradition.
