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


  • 2 medium potatoes, peeled and quartered
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 3/4 cup sliced green onions
  • 1 large carrot, finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced

  1. In a saucepan, cook potatoes in boiling water until tender; mash and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, brown beef until no longer pink; drain. Stir in the next nine ingredients. Simmer for 4-5 minutes. Stir in the potatoes, parsley and chili sauce; remove from the heat.
