Secret NH Pork Pie Recipe STOLEN
And from this featured image, it appears that the pie has been stolen as well. It's so good that I committed the 21st century crime of eating it BEFORE I took a picture of it. Here's the secret recipe that I stole from 'Jodi from Accounting'.
For one pie (stuffed)
2 pie crusts
2 lbs ground pork
2 medium potatoes
1 medium onion
2 palmfuls of Jamaican Allspice
Boil potatoes & mash. In deep heavy skillet or stockpot, brown pork and diced onion (with salt & pepper). I cook pork for about an hour to breakdown any fats in the meat. Drain the meat saving about 1 to 2 tablespoons of the drippings. Put drippings and allspice back into cooked pork and cook for about another 5-10 minutes. Add mashed potatoes. Taste, if at this point the mixture is a little dry, add a tablespoon of real butter (not that fake margarine stuff). Put in refridge to cool for about an hour.
Prepare pie dish with 1 of the pie crusts. Add mixture, cover with 2nd pie crust. Cook about 1 hour in 350 degree oven until both crusts are brown.
I serve with ketchup.
This is a traditional Christmas dish in the Lapierre family, Jodi's is more of a meat based pie and the Jamaican Allspice really gives it a special kick.
The pork pie that my family makes is a little more potato based and we always have it with butter, not ketchup.
Ketchup pairs with Jodi's recipe very nicely though.
Hopefully she doesn't catch on that I have now shared her secret recipe with the entire world but it's too good not to share!
