How to Make a Pork Pie With Apple


Pork and apples seem to go naturally together to make a meal. Traditionally a way to create a second meal from leftover pork, a pork and apple pie is a comfort food with down-home taste and appeal. You can use fresh or reconstituted dried apples to make a pork pie that your family will love.

Step 1

Melt 2 tbsp. butter over medium heat in a large skillet. Add onions and sauté until tender.

Step 2

Sprinkle 3/4 tsp. each of sage and salt over the cubed pork. Add the pork to the skillet along with 1 cup water and cook until the liquid is reduced by half.

Step 3

Combine 1/4 cup flour and 3/4 cup milk in a small bowl and whisk until blended. Pour over the pork in the skillet and cook until thick.

Step 4

Pour 1/2 of the pork mixture into a 9-inch prepared pie shell.

Step 5

Place the apple slices over the pork mixture. Top with the remaining pork.

Step 6

Bake at 450 degrees F. for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 F. and bake for an additional 30 minutes.
