How to Make Pere Beaudry's Tourtiere
- Preheat oven to 450'F
- In a skillet, cook the onion, garlic and spices on medium low heat in the olive oil. When the onion is transparent, add the meat. Let simmer stirring occasionally until meat is cooked through.
- Make a gravy by adding the flour to the water. Stir well and add to the cooking meat to thicken the mixture. The gravy inside the pie helps keep it nice and moist.
- Put the bottom crust in the pie pan and add the cooked meat. Put the top crust on and brush with the cream.
- Bake in the 450'F oven for 10 minutes, then turn down to 350'F and bake for 20 minutes until golden on the top. Enjoy!
