1.) Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.

2.) Place pork, beef, onion, garlic, water, salt, thyme, sage, black pepper, and cloves in a saucepan. Cook over medium heat until mixture boils, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to low and simmer until meat is cooked, about 5 minutes.

3.) Roll out one 9″ pie crust and place in the bottom of a greased pie plate. When meat mixture is finished cooking, spoon into bottom of pie crust. Place another pie crust on top and pinch edges to seal. Cut slits in top so that steam can escape.

4.) Beat one egg and brush on top of pie crust, being sure to cover the entire surface of the crust.

5.) Place in preheated oven and bake for 35 – 45 minutes, until the top crust is golden brown and the mixture is bubbling hot. Remove from oven and allow to rest for 10 minutes before slicing.

6.) Serve and enjoy!
