  1. Make the filling: heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat; add in beef, pork, scallions, and garlic; cook/stir and break up the meats, until the beef loses its red color.
  2. Add in the remaining filling ingredients; continue to cook and stir, until the mixture is almost dry, about 10 minutes.
  3. Transfer to a bowl, let cool, then chill.
  4. Make the pastry: sift the flour,baking powder, and salt into a mixing bowl, add in the shortening, and cut with a pastry blender until the mixture resembles coarse cornmeal.
  5. Add in the egg and milk; stir until a ball of dough forms.
  6. Transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface, roll out about 1/2 inch thick, and using the lid of a coffee can, cut out rounds of dough.
  7. To assmble: place a heaping tablespoon of filling on one side of each round of dough; with your fingertips, dampen the pie edges with water, fold the other sides of dough over the filling, and seal the edges with a fork dipped in water; prick twice with a fork on top.
  8. To fry: heat the oil in a medium cast-iron skillet to about 350°; quickly fry each pie until golden, about 2 minutes on each side, and drain briefly on paper towels; serve hot.
