Steak Pot Pie

By Kathy Smith

Steak Pot Pie Recipe:

3-4 lb steak, diced into sections or pieces

Pie dough (instructions below)

1/4 cup of unsalted butter

Pepper and salt

1 cup of milk (do not use non-fat milk)

4 cups steak stock

8" baking dish or pie pan

To Prepare:

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Place the pieces of steak in a large pot and add just enough water to cover the top of the steak. Bring to a boil and then reduce the heat to medium-low and slowly boil until the meat is falling apart. As the meat cooks, you may prepare the pie dough and grease the baking dish.

Cut the dough in half and then roll out one half to about 1/8 inch thick. Carefully lay the rolled out dough in the bottom of the pan. If there is any leftover pie dough, trim it from the edges of the pan and reserve.

Add shredded steak in the dish and the remaining dough. If possible, layer the steak and the remaining dough. Add the milk and distribute with two tbsp of the butter. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to your liking.

Now take the second half of the pie dough and roll into a long 1/4 inch thick rectangle. Dice the other two tbsp of butter into little pats and distribute along the dough. Fold the pie dough in thirds and roll out. Repeat once more. This will ensure that the butter is blended into the pie dough. Roll out into a thin circle and place on top of the bottom half of the pie. Squeeze the edges together and then slice a hole in the top to allow hot air to escape.

Bake the steak pot pie in the oven for 35 to 45 minutes until the juices bubble and the crust is lightly browned.

Pie Dough Recipe

2 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon of salt
1 cup butter, diced into small pieces or shortening

3/4 cup of ice water

To Prepare:

In a big mixing bowl, combine the flour and salt and then work the butter lightly into
the flour using either two forks or a pastry blender. Once the flour mixture resembles coarse meal, slowly pour in the ice water and mix just until the dough can hold together. Do not over mix, or else the dough will become "gummy". Wrap in plastic wrap and chill in your fridge for 60 min in order to "rest".
