Jameson Pot Pie

So the Hubby had wanted to Smoke some pork chops on the grill. Of course I'm all for this! What he brings home is a delicious juicy slab of Pork Tenderloin! To say the least I sliced that sucker up into 2" slices and began to marinate them and prep them for him while he got the grill ready! But there was just to much meat to cook for that night just for the family. So of course I got the brilliant idea to make Pot Pie!!! Using the same marinade that I did for our dinner that night I proceeded to make a masterpiece for the following night for dinner!
This is a three step recipe. And so delicious I'll be making it again!

In a Gallon Zip lock bag:

4 pork chops chopped into good sized cubes (they cook faster in the crock pot)
Seasonings: onion powder, paprika, Creole Seasoning, garlic powder. Be generous and just coat the meat before you put the meat in the bag!
1 Tbls minced garlic
1/4 cup or more! of Jameson Whiskey or your favorite whiskey!
Enough vinegar based BBQ sauce to coat generous!

Allow the meat to soak in the fridge overnight....or for at least 30 minutes to 1 hour!

Crock pot the whole bag! Just dump it in maybe add a tad more BBQ sauce or a little bit of water to make sure all the meat is covered. Cook it on high until the meat is cooked.

While the meat is cooking....
Use your favorite biscuit recipe or....

2 cups flour
1 cup milk or 1/2 and 1/2 or heavy whipping cream
mix until well blended. Set aside.

The Guts of the Pie!
1 frozen bag of mixed vegetables
1 bag frozen mixed bell peppers
1/2 cup mayo
1 can cream of mushroom
1 Tbls Dijon mustard.....or your favorite mustard!
The same seasonings from earlier! (Paprika, onion powder, creole seasoning, garlic powder)
CHEESE!!!! I am a cheese fanatic! So I on average use three types of cheeses. this time i used:
Smoked Provolone, mixed bag of shredded cheese and slices of American cheese! yum.....!
and Smoked Sausage or Kielbasa

Now you are probably wondering why I had you cook the meat before putting it in the pie. Because now you won't have to worry about it being fully cooked! You just have to make sure the crust cooks and you are set!

-Slice all the meat into smaller chunks and place it into the bottom of a large casserole dish or use a few    smaller casserole dishes.
-Spread the Veggies over the meat. Then the peppers.
-Mix the mayo, cream of mushroom, mustard and season to taste...add more mayo or mustard to taste! Don't be scared! ;) Spread this over the veggies...use all of it don't waste such good stuff!
-Then Do a layer of each of the cheeses. I normally cut the slices in half and spread them out. Then layer the shredded cheese on thickly last!
-Gently press everything down!
-Roll out your crust mixture from earlier....about 1/4" is good. and cover the guts!
If you are using the basic crust i posted here...preheat the oven to 450 and bake for 30 minutes. Check it every 10 minutes to make sure it isn't baking to fast. you don't want to burn your hard work!
Or if you are using your favorite biscuit recipe follow those directions!

Pull it out when the crust is cooked thoroughly!  Serve and enjoy!

Delicious and really pretty easy. It's just layering everything up!
Good Luck and try your own variations!
