Beefsteak Pie

  • For the crust:
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1/2 cup mashed potato
  • About 1/4 cup water
  • For the filling:
  • 1 1/2 lbs round steak
  • 2 Tbsps flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/3 tsp pepper
  • 1/8 tsp ground cloves
  • Water
Sift together the salt, flour and baking powder. Cut or rub in the shortening. Add the mashed potato and mix to a dough with the water. Chill while preparing the filling.

Cut the steak into thin strips. Dip each piece in salt, flour, pepper and ground cloves, stirred together. Put a small piece of fat in the center of each strip of meat. Roll up and place in a deep baking dish or casserole. Half fill the dish with water. Cover closely and bake in a slow oven at 300°F for about an hour. Remove the cover.

Roll out the crust and put it in place over the meat. Put the dish back in the oven and bake for 25 minutes longer.

**A few, small pieces of kidney or oysters or mushrooms may be cooked with the meat to give variety in flavor.
