Mary Morrisette’s Canadian meat pie
From the kitchen of Melissa Pappas
This is my Great Aunt’s recipe. The pie is traditionally served on New Year’s Day.
3 pounds of lean pork (shoulder)
1 pound of lean beef
Place in large pan.
Season to taste with salt, pepper,
cinnamon, and/or cloves.
Stir meat with enough water to cover.
Cook for one hour
When meat is cooked, skim off top fat.
Add ½ cup to 1-cup bread crumbs.
Stir and place in pie shell
Cover with top crust
This pie is served hot.
Partly cook it if intending to freeze it or eat at a later time.
