Meat and Potato Pie

This is serious comfort food. Like a chicken pot pie made for a mountain man. I would love to try it with chunks of beef rather than mincemeat, but for the time being it will have to do.

1 lb beef
1 onion
2 cloves garlic
2 cups diced potatoes
2 cups carrots
1 cup peas
1 cup corn
1 can mushrooms
1 can cream mushroom soup + 1 can of water
1/2 cup milk
pie crust (two, for top and bottom)

Preheat the oven to 350 (176 C). Saute beef onion, garlic, spices, carrots in a large pot until soft. Drain excess fat. Then add potatoes, soup, peas, corn, mushrooms and milk. Simmer on low for 30 min until the liquid is reduced. Then spoon the mixture into the crust, seal edges and bake 30-40 minutes, or until the crust is golden.
