Potato Pork Pie Recipe

Publisher Photo
A true comfort food that's impossible to resist, this main dish is hearty and saucy with flavors that blend so nicely together. Many shepherd's pie recipes call for beef, so this pork version is a tasty change of pace. -Michelle Ross, Stanwood, Washington

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 22, 2011

Finally I found the perfect recipe for hamburger gravy! Instead of whipping cream in the mashed potatoes I used about 1/3 cup sour cream and about 3 tablespoons of butter and about 2 tablespoons milk. I used 2 cups of beef broth instead of canned (I don't know if that is the equivalent to 2 14 1/2 oz. cans though.) Instead of pork, I used ground beef. I personally didn't really like the mustard in this recipe, I will probably omit it next time. To make it simpler, I just layered all the mashed potatoes on the bottom and topped it with the beef gravy. It was delicious and just as good left over!

A little bit of work, what with the homemade mashed potatoes, but OH SO GOOD! It might lose something in the translation to use instant mashed, but my family loved this recipe. I added a little garlic powder to the mashed potatoes.
