Recipe Name: TOURTIERE DE QUEBEC (QUEBEC PORK PIE)
Category: ETHNIC
Serves: 6

1 1/4 Pound Ground pork
1/4 ts Dried rosemary
1/2 Each To 3/4 cup cold water
1/4 ts Grated nutmeg
1/2 Cup Onion, finely chopped
1/4 Cup Celery, finely chopped
1/2 ts Ground black pepper
1/4 Cup Old-fashioned rolled oats
1 Each Bay leaf
1/2 ts Dried savoury

This is considered Quebec style, using rolled oats instead of potatoes to
thicken the filling shows a Scottish influence.

Servings: 6

In a large, heavy frying pan, combine pork with cold water and heat to
boiling point. Add onion, celery, pepper, bay leaf, savoury, rosemary,
nutmeg and cinnamon. Cook, covered, over medium-low heat for 1 1/2 hours,
adding more water if mixture dries out. Halfway through cooking time,
season with salt to taste. Stir in rolled oats and cook, stirring, for 1
to 2 minutes. Remove bay leaf.

Meanwhile, line a 9-inch pie plate with pastry. When meat mixture is
lukewarm, spoon into pie shell and cover with remaining pastry. Trim
pastry, seal edges and cut steam vents in top crust. Decorate with pastry
cutouts as desired. Bake in preheated 425 deg F oven for 15 minutes, then
reduce heat to 375 deg F and bake another 25 minutes or until crust is
golden.

I want to bring this recipe back to the top, it is ideal for camping and festivals...

It has been posted here since December 2003...

Do not let the oats fool you the texture is wonderful as well as the flavor. You can always add more herbs, I even add hot peppers on occasion.

Try it, you won't regret.

Beautiful. This is the one thing of my French-Canadian heritage, beyond the language among the elders that I didn't understand, that I remember from my Rhode Island childhood.

This is the way my mother's older sister made it -- except she did use the potatoes. Oats would be delicious. It's the sharp herbs of rosemary and bay, together with the nutmeg, that makes the flavor so intense and distinctive. Tante Paule-Renee ("Pauline") made all the pies every Christmas -- she used to come with armloads of them to our house.

They freeze well too, if you make up lots of pies and put them in deep freeze after you fill with the cooked meat and seal them, but before you bake them. You don't even need to thaw before baking.

The little savage needed to have the ketchup removed from the table, what a sacrilege to a fine meal!

I must state that ground unseasoned pork should be used for this dish, not sausage.

Potato is good for this but the oats make it unique!

P.S. I have baked this pie many times in camp using my large dutch oven with 3 small flat stones on the bottom of the oven to keep the pie tin off the direct heat ( prevents burnt bottom syndrome ) !

I just noticed that the cinnamon is missing from the list:

It should be 1/4 tsp just like the nutmeg!

Sorry folks!

Oh, I'm perfectly willing to assume that *this* recipe isn't period, but it comes from much older roots. Just a matter of finding them. biggrin.gif

But I tend to cook for myself while I've got the fire going in the hearth and bread oven, so...maybe if I stick it in the back...hm...
