Grandma's Arcadian Meat Pie


square or rectangular pie pastry top and bottom
3 to 4 pounds beef, cubed
1/4 pound salt pork
1 cup pearl onions
1 cup sweet peas

Place beef and salt pork in a heavy sauce pan with an inch or two of water; bring to a boil. Simmer until the meat is very tender, about three hours. Let meat cool.

Arrange bottom pastry crust in a pie dish. Place cooled meat into the pastry; cover with pastry top. Bake in a 350-degree oven about 45 to 50 minutes, or until crust is brown and filling is bubbly. Let set for a few minutes before cutting.
