While looking through my aunt's old recipes a few years ago, I came across this interesting pork pie. Now whenever my brother comes to visit, this is the meal he requests.


  • CRUST:
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/3 cup shortening
  • 3 tablespoons cold water
  • 1-1/2 pounds boneless pork, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 3/4 teaspoon dried sage
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1-1/2 cups thinly sliced peeled apples
  • 1 tablespoon sugar


  1. In a bowl, combine flour and salt; mix well. Add cheese; toss to coat. Cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in water only until moistened. Form into a ball. Roll two-thirds of the ball into a 11-in. circle; place in a 9-in. pie pan, lining the bottom and sides. Roll remaining pastry into an 8-in. circle; cut into eight wedges. Chill pastry shell and wedges while preparing filling.
  2. Brown pork in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add water, onion, sage and salt. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 30-40 minutes or until meat is tender. Combine flour and milk to form a smooth paste; gradually add to pork mixture. Bring to a boil; boil and stir for 2 minutes. Spoon half into prepared shell. Top with apples and sprinkle with sugar. Spoon remaining pork mixture over apples. Arrange pastry wedges on top.
  3. Bake, uncovered, at 450° for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 350°; bake 30-40 minutes longer or until pastry is lightly browned and crisp.
