So growing up and going to Canada all the time to see my family, my grandmother would make this pie of meat which they call Tourtiere, we call it a meat pie. We would have this with some ketchup on the side and some potatoes and vegetables. I miss having this so I now make it for my family and they love it. I hope you enjoy it. The process is not hard, You can either make your own crust or a store bought is fine,
INGREDIENTS FOR TWO NINE INCH PIES:
- 4 pounds of ground pork
- 1 teaspoon of olive oil
- 1 sweet onion
- 4 teaspoons of salt
- 1 teaspoon of sugar
- 1 teaspoon of olive oil for crust
- 4 teaspoons of nutmeg
- 1 1/2 teaspoons of clove
- 4 teaspoons of pepper
- 2 pie crusts with the tops, I get in the dairy section.
In a large pan with oil, take the onion and chop into small pieces put in pan, take the spices and add into the onions, cook for about 5 minutes, add the pork.
Cook this until meat is cooked through. Take this and put in a food processor for a couple quick pulses.
Take out a pie dish and spray with cooking spray, put one of the layers of dough into the pan, pour the mixture in the crust and place the other layer on top. I take a little olive oil and brush it onto the crust and sprinkle sugar on top.
Place in a 350 degree oven for about 45 minutes. Enjoy!!!
