Directions:
For the filling:
Mix the meat and the ham with the spices and three Tbs. stock. Set aside.
For the pastry:
Sift flour into a large bowl. Make a well in th ecenter and add the egg yolk. Gently heat the lard and the milk. When the lard melts, bring it rapidly to a boil. Pour immediately into the flour and mix it all together. You want a soft, pliable, but not sticky dough. Transfer to a lightly floured surface and knead until it is smooth and elastic. Cover and let it rest in a warm place 20-30 minutes.
Roll out 2/3 of the pastry and line a raised mould or a springform pan. Fill with meat filling. Roll out the remaining dough to make the top. Place a small hole in the center of the top crust. Fold the edges and crimp as for any pie. Brush the top with the other egg(beaten) and use any extra dough pieces to decorate the top of the pie. Brush the pie again with egg.
Place on a sheet pan and bake at 400 for 20 minutes. Reduce temperature and bake for about 2 more hours.
Heat the stock in a saucepan and add the gelatine. Stir until dissolved. Let it cool until almost set. Pour into the pie through the hole in the crust. Leave the pie to set in a cool place overnight. Serve in thick slices.
