Cipaille Or Cipate (Layered Meat Pie)

Ingredients:

2 lb Boneless chicken meat
2 lb Lean beef
2 lb Lean pork
4 md Onions, coarsely chopped
1/4 lb Salt pork, thinly sliced
2 c Potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 ts Salt
1/2 ts Ground black pepper
1/4 ts Mixed ground cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice
2 c Chicken stock (approximate)
Pastry for double crust pie

Directions:

Cut chicken, beef and pork into 1 inch cubes and place in a large bowl. Combine with onions; cover and refrigerate for at least 12 hours or overnight.

Arrange salt pork evenly in the bottom of a 3 quart casserole, preferably cast iron with a cover.

Layer with 1/3 of the meat mixture and 1/3 of the potatoes; season with 1/3 of salt, pepper and spices.

Roll out half of the pastry slightly thicker than for a normal pie and arrange on the potato layer, cutting a small hole in the centre.

Repeat with 2 more layers of meat and potatoes seasoned with salt, pepper and spices. Cover with remaining pastry, cutting a small hole in the centre.

Slowly add enough chicken stock through the hole until liquid appears. Cover dish and bake in a preheated 400 deg F oven for 45 minutes or until liquid simmers.

Reduce temperature to 250 deg F and continue to bake, covered, for 5 to 6 hours more or until top crust is a rich golden brown.

Traditionally this layered pie is best made with game. Failing a supply of venison or pheasant it can be made with a mixture of meats and poultry as is this recipe.
