Meat Pie

This pork pie is wonderful! I received it from my husband’s mother. She is French, thus I suppose this is a French meat pie recipe. Beef, pork, and potatoes are all properly seasoned and cooked together. It’s delicious and easy to make! It’s finest when served fresh, but you may make it ahead of time and freeze or refrigerate it. Serve the pie by itself or with beef gravy.
