Tortiere (French Meat Pie)Submitted by: MAURIZIA
Ground beef, lean, 8 oz (remove)
Ground Pork, 16 oz (remove)
Onions, raw, 1 medium (2-1/2" dia) (remove)
Garlic, 1 clove (remove)
Water, tap, 0.5 cup (8 fl oz) (remove)
Salt, 1.5 tsp (remove)
Thyme, ground, 0.5 tsp (remove)
Sage, ground, 0.25 tsp (remove)
Pepper, black, 0.25 tsp (remove)
Cloves, ground, 0.125 tbsp (remove)
Pie crust, frozen, ready-to-bake, 1 crust, single 9" (remove)
In a saucepan, combine pork, beef, onion, garlic, water, salt, thyme, sage, black pepper and cloves. Cook over medium heat until mixture boils; stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to low and simmer until meat is cooked, about 5 minutes.
Spoon the meat mixture into the pie crust. Place top crust on top of pie and pinch edges to seal. Cut slits in top crust so steam can escape. Cover edges of pie with strips of aluminum foil.
Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes, remove foil and return to oven. Bake for an additional 15 to 20 minutes until golden brown. Let cool 10 minutes before slicing.
Number of Servings: 8

WOW! This is really good. I used 93% lean turkey instead of pork, a large onion in place of the med. one. I used the prior posters suggestion of chicken broth and added 1/2 tsp. Worcestershire and 1/2 tsp. arrowroot. In the words of my husband..this WILL be made again! =) Thank you for sharing. - 6/16/11
