Tourtiere a L'orignal (French Canadian Moose Meat Pie)

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by queenbeatrice

This is my Memere's tourtiere recipe, tweaked a bit, but don't tell her that. One does not mess with a French woman's meat pie recipe, lol. All the men in my family are moose hunters. This is one way we use the ground moose meat. Moose meat is very lean so do not cut back on the ground pork.

Fantastic recipe. Not a lot of moose dishes available but so glad we tried this one. My search has ended for moose hamburger . Thank You.
