Sounds easy. Not enough flavoring for me I think. I make the old fashioned raised pork pie with a hot water crust....but only at Christmas.

i might give this a try just to see though!

If you simmered that stuff for an hour and a half it would be a pan of mush. And I agree, it wouldn't taste like anything.

Ha ha ha, Barb . . . . what you said----maybe so, but my Old Man likes it anyway, either hot or cold, with a big spoonful of home-made thick applesauce alongside.    It probably helps this recipe to use the best grade of pork one can afford . . . . .
