Argentinean Meat Pie

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Nimue2

I got this recipe from a friend who was raised in Argentina. It was one of her favorites. It soon became one of mine. This recipe can be prepared up to 8 hours ahead and baked at dinner time. Bring to room temperature first. It is also great re-heated the next day.

I was disappointed. I didn't think there was much flavor beyond the olives. I also think the directions leave a lot to be desired. Step 8, for example, says to line the pie shell with the potatoes. It's not until you get to the last step that it tells you to put half the potatoes on top. Also, the pie shell is not included in the ingredients. Sorry, I will not be making this again.
