Pork Pie Recipe

Updated on April 2, 2016

Pork Pie

I had bought this large pork shoulder roast as it was on sale and I cannot walk away from a good sale especially when it comes to meat. After having it for dinner on Sunday there was quite a bit left and I started thinking what can I make with the rest of this meat and what do I have in the house that would go with it. I share with you my recipe for "Porkers Pie". It is made quite similar to "Shepperd's Pie" hence the name Porker.

Cook Time

  • Prep time: 20 min
  • Cook time: 45 min
  • Ready in: 1 hour 5 min
  • Yields: 4 - 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 pounds of potatoes, mashed with milk and butter
  • 3-4 cups of cooked roast pork, cut into cubes
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 1 Package of pork gravy, enough to yield 1 cup
  • 1 1/2 cups of frozen corn
  • To taste pepper
  • To tase paprika

Instructions - Let's Get Cooking

  1. Preheat oven to 300°.
  2. Lightly grease a 12" x 9" pan.
  3. Saute onions and set aside.
  4. Make gravy and just before it starts to thicken add your cubed pork to the pot, mix well then add the onions to the mix and set aside.
  5. Press half of the mashed potatoes into the bottom of the dish or pan.
  6. Add the pork, gravy and onion mixture.
  7. Top with frozen corn then add the remainder of the mashed potatoes to the top. Sprinkle with pepper and paprika.
  8. Cook for approximately 45 minutes to an hour. Serve on its own or add a salad and another vegetable. Bon Appétit!

Original Recipe

This is the first time I made this and it is my own recipe. When I make it again I will probably substitute the corn with peas. Bacon may be good across the top of the pie but I would partially cook the bacon to get the bulk of grease out of it first.

      Hi Susan, just to let you know that I finally made your pork leftover recipe today! It was great! My husband really enjoyed it. To save on time and dishes, I made up the gravy in the same pot with the sauteed onions (i.e. I didn't set aside the onions separately). It still worked out just fine though! I was also very impressed at how far the food went with this recipe. Great taste & great value.

      Also I found it very practical to make while caring for young kids - no critical-timing steps, and once it's in the oven, I could just be with my kids until the food was ready. Thanks for a great hub.

      Hi Susan. I'm looking forward to trying out this pork leftovers recipe.

      Thank you so much for answering my question about Super Bowl dip - your dip recipe was a huge hit at my party (I also updated the answer about that result). Then I thought I would check out any recipe hubs you might have for more great cooking ideas I can use! Thanks again for your help, it's been much appreciated.

      Had a couple ideas for titles but just as a lark...

      Sty Pie - may be a bit much but the hint is there (lol) Pork-Fork Surprise - it's a casserole right ?

      Swine and Dine - okay I will quit...

      Had fun and got hungry all at the same time
