Savory Meat Pie

A friend gave me this recipe after I had mentioned that my meat pies lacked "punch". The pie has a delicious, distinctive flavor thanks to lots of seasonings. Flecks of carrots peek out of each neat slice. My family especially enjoys this dinner when the weather turns chilly. -Paula L'Hirondelle, Red Deer, Alberta

    My wife made this the month it was first published and my children and I both have wished she could make it once a week ever since. Good food!

    This was very good. I made about 2/3 cup beef broth gravey to make it a bit moist. I served it with some beef gravy and the chili sauce. I didn't put the chili sauce in the pie. I loved the fresh parsley. Janet VFE

    Good, but I think I would leave the cinnamon out next time!
