This pie is delicious! I got the recipe from my husband’s mother. She is French so I believe this is a French Meat Pie. Beef, pork, and potato are all nicely spiced and baked into a pie. It’s yummy and pretty easy to make too! Best served fresh, but you can also make ahead and freeze or refrigerate.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 medium potato, peeled and cubed
  • ½ pound ground beef
  • ½ pound ground pork
  • ⅓ clove garlic, chopped
  • ½ cup chopped onion
  • ¼ cup water
  • ½ teaspoon mustard powder
  • ½ teaspoon dried thyme
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon dried sage
  • 1 (15 ounce) package refrigerated pie crusts

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Place the potato in a saucepan with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, and cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Drain, mash, and set aside.
  2. 2 Meanwhile, crumble the ground beef and pork into a large saucepan, and add the garlic, onion and water. Season with mustard powder, thyme, cloves and salt. Cook over medium heat, stirring to crumble the meat and mix in the spices, until the meat is evenly browned. Remove from the heat, and mix in the mashed potato.
  3. 3 Place one of the pie crusts into a 9 inch pie plate. Fill with the meat mixture, then top with the other pie crust. Prick the top crust a few times with a knife to vent steam. Crimp around the edges using the tines of the fork, and remove any excess dough. Cover the edges of the pie crust with aluminum foil.
  4. 4 Bake for 25 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the crust has browned. Serve by itself, or with a beef gravy.

  2. I found this recipe via ingredient search. Then I did not have the ingredients I thought I did. It still turned out great using the basic recipe and I will make it again. Our whole family (14 month included) enjoyed it. My recipe is as follows: 1 cup frozen green peas 1lb ground turkey 1 - Read more ...
  3. The taste of the meat pie was very bland. Didn't like this recipe at all. Maybe if you were to add more spices to it it would make it a better meal.
  4. this was good, i put a dash of cloves in, a dash of all spice and half a tsp of cin, also an oxo cube and a bit more water. lovely!!
  5. Good but in my opinion not quite as good as the Meat Pie (Tourtiere). But because I think it has more of an 'expected' taste it might be a better choice to serve to guests. I didn't think the leftovers were so good though.
  6. This was fantastic and everyone loved it. I didn't find it the least bit bland but I did change a few things. I didn't add any water to the meat mixture. I also used roasted garlic instant mashed potatoes (entire pouch) instead of a regular potato. I plan on using just a bit less cloves - Read more ...
  7. This recipe is great! I've made it several times and it's a big hit with the family.
  8. Just like the pork pies my French-Canadian relatives always made. Great consistency and look. The taste was a bit bland and the next time I make this recipe which I will do I am going to at least double the herbs and spices. That should make the pie very flavorable.
  9. With a little help, I'd give it *****. Next time I will double the potatoes and add flour to the meat juices to thicken as it was too dry and crumbly as is, yet very flavorful. Yumyum.
