    Rhonda *J*'s Note:

    Posted as a request. Tourtiere is a traditional favourite, and this recipe says it's been adapted to work with today's much leaner ground pork. The prep time listed is just based on making the meat filling and not the pie crust, which a recipe for is not given, so just use your favourite recipe. Serve warm with a chunky chili sauce,chutney type relish or pickled beets. Recipe from Homemakers Magazine.

      Very pretty-almost hated slicing it! The flavor was superb. I thought this was a little too wet when I placed this in the crust, and the crust would be soggy but the crust absorbed the excess moisture and this sliced beautifully. Great recipe Rhonda!

      This was simply fantastic. I used all beef, and added a little bit of Brovil to the water. My husband had seconds, so you KNOW it's great. Thanks Rhonda for a wonderful addition to my ground beef recipes.

      delicious, followed the recipe exactly and was also concerned about the amount of liquid after simmering but went with it and the pie baked up beautifully with the flavours transferring into the crust, everyone loved it and have had numerous requests for Christmas, the best I have ever made or tasted, thanks for posting this recipe
