As much as I love to share recipes with you all, this is as much for my benefit as yours!! - I bought a wonderful game pie mix on the farmers market, being sure that I had a recipe at home. When it came to the deed this week, the game pies I had recipes for were more of the cold - pork pie- style, and not what I had in mind at all..... So, I made one up! and I have to say it turned out pretty well. So here, posted in immortality, is my made up game pie recipe!
Game Pie Meat Mix
1 large tumbler med dry quite strong cider (prob about 250ml)
1/2 mug porcini mushroom stock
1 teaspoon (level) grainy mustard
2 bay leaves
2 cloves garlic
small amount dry mixed herbs
salt and pepper
1 tsp bisto powder to thicken gravy if needed
2 large squirts of honey (prob 2 tblspoons)
Roll meat in some plain flour, and fry with onion and garlic. When meat browned, put into large casserole dish and add all the other ingredients (excpet bisto powder which is only used at the end if the gravy needs thickening) Cook slowly for a couple of hours. Served with mash and greens. mmmmmm!!!
