• 1 lb. very lean ground pork (shoulder cut)
  • 1/4 lb. lean ground beef
  • 1 small to medium onion, minced
  • 1/2 cup water
  • salt & pepper
  • Pie crust


Cook slowly, stirring often, until enough liquid has accumulated. Reduce heat and cook for 2 hours. Stir often to prevent from sticking to bottom of pot.

Add 2 crushed soda crackers and 1/2 teaspoon (or less) of Allspice.

Fill 8 in. pie, brush crust with egg yolk, and cook in 425 degrees F. for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 F. and cook 30 minutes.
