Hunter’s Pie Recipe

A few years ago, I went on a hunting trip with some friends and we came back with a good supply of game meat. To celebrate our successful hunt, I decided to create a delicious and comforting Hunterʼs Pie recipe using the meat we collected. The result was a hearty and satisfying dish that has become a favorite in my household. This recipe is a perfect example of how simple ingredients can come together to create something truly special.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb game meat (venison, rabbit, or any other game meat of your choice)
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 carrots, diced
  • 2 celery stalks, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup beef or game broth
  • 1 cup red wine
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/2 tsp dried rosemary
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 large potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 4 tbsp butter

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  2. In a large skillet, melt 2 tbsp butter over medium heat. Add the game meat, onion, carrots, celery, and garlic. Cook until the meat is browned and the vegetables are softened.
  3. Sprinkle the flour over the meat and vegetables, stirring until well combined. Add the tomato paste, thyme, rosemary, salt, and pepper. Pour in the broth and red wine, and bring to a simmer. Cook until the sauce has thickened.
  4. Transfer the meat mixture to a baking dish.
  5. In a large pot, cover the diced potatoes with cold water and bring to a boil. Cook until the potatoes are tender, about 15-20 minutes. Drain the potatoes and return them to the pot.
  6. Using a potato masher or a fork, mash the potatoes until smooth. Add the milk and 4 tbsp butter, and continue mashing until the potatoes are creamy. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  7. Spread the mashed potatoes over the meat mixture in the baking dish, using a spatula to create an even layer.
  8. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the mashed potatoes are golden and the filling is bubbling around the edges.
  9. Let the HunterʼS Pie cool for a few minutes before serving.
