    if you add spinach,it is called a popeye pie in Newfoundland. If you don’t have spinach,dandelion greens work also.

    My Mother’s version of a meat pie was similar to a beef stew. She used chunks of beef, potatoes and carrots cooked in a black wrought iron skillet, then transferred the meal into an uncooked pie crust(top and bottom) where she cooked it in the oven until crust was browned. Delicious.

    My grandmother was also born in Nova Scotia and she made a similar pie with salt pork; however, she would also add potatoes, carrots and often chicken in addition to the beef. She died back in the 1970’s and I still remember how delicious her pies were. I miss her cooking! Thanks for the memory of her meat pie!
