1/2 cup water
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp dried thyme, crushed
1/4 tsp ground sage

1 recipe pastry for a 9 inch
double crust pie
Preheat oven to 425F.
In a saucepan, combine pork, beef, onion, garlic, water, salt, thyme, sage, black pepper and cs.
Cook over medium heat until mixture boils; stirring occasionally.
Reduce heat to low and simmer until meat is cooked, about 5 mins.
Spoon the meat mixture into the pie crust.
Place top crust on top of pie and pinch edges to seal.
Cut slits in top crust so steam can escape. Cover edges of pie with strips of aluminum foil.
Bake in preheated oven for 20 mins, remove foil and return to oven.

Let cool 10 mins before slicing.
