“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.”
