Beach Pie

Nothing to do with beaches here, but “Beef Peach Pie” sounds aaaawful! I was looking for a simple meatloaf recipe this weekend, and found this instead. Step up? I think so. It’s delicious, and tasted sort of familiar, like something I maybe had 15 years ago and vaguely remember liking.

To make the…crust, combine the beef, egg, milk, onion, bread crumbs, salt and pepper in a large bowl and mix evenly. Press into a 9″ pie pan, and then prick with a fork all over.

Bake for 30 minutes, and then remove from the oven and pour off any excess grease. I used a pretty low fat ground beef, so there wasn’t really enough to pour off.

Pro tip: I know some people who until quite recently didn’t realize that you shouldn’t pour animal grease down the sink. Don’t do that! It can congeal and clog your pipes. Pour it off into an empty can or jar, let it congeal, and chuck it.

While the beef cooks, stir together the ketchup, brown sugar, and vinegar. Drain the peaches. Don’t worry about removing every drop of juice, as a bit leftover will help flavor the sauce.

Arrange the peaches over the beef as evenly as possible.

Pro-er tip: Don’t just stick your hand in the can to get the peaches out. I’m pretty sure I have tetanus now.

Spoon the sauce over the peaches and beef.

Return to the oven for another twenty minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool for ten minutes before eating.

I recommend serving with your favorite mashed potato recipe, and spooning a bit of the extra sauce left in the pie dish over the potatoes. Yum!

Meat Pie!

    You totally tricked me into looking at this with your title. I thought to myself, “Oh, I like beaches! I like pie! This will be delightful.” And then, it was meat.

    I’m not sure your post truly addresses the fact that this recipe sounds…..like an odd combination, to be polite. And yet you seem to consider it normal. Even for you Corinne, this is odd. Haha. But if you say it’s tasty, I believe ya!

      It’s weird, but it totally works!

        I find it funny that my name is also Corinne, and I get odd responses all the time when I make this dish. I found the recipe on Allrecipes as well. Everyone I have ever made this for, absolutely loves it! The hard part is convincing people to just try it.

        Heh, yeah, it can be a hard sell. Some people are depressingly unadventurous! Also, yay Corinnes!
