  • 2/3 cup cooked chopped or ground beef, pork, lamb, chicken and/or turkey
  • 2/3 cup chopped cooked potato, sweet potato, carrot, turnip, and/or rutabaga; cooked corn or cooked peas

Pastry for a Single-Crust Pie
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup shortening
  • 1/4 cup butter, cut up
  • 1/4- 1/3 cup ice water

Prepare Pastry for a Single-Crust Pie. Divide dough into four portions. On a lightly floured surface, use your hands to slightly flatten a portion of the dough. Roll dough from center to edge into a 6-inch circle. Repeat with remaining dough portions.
For filling, in a small bowl, combine meat, vegetable, onion, and steak sauce.
Spoon about 1/3 cup of the filling onto half of each pastry circle. Lightly moisten edge with a little milk. Fold other half of pastry over filling. Seal edges by crimping with a fork. Cut slits in pastry to allow steam to escape. Brush with a little additional milk. Place on an ungreased large baking sheet.
Bake in a 375 degree F oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until pastry is golden brown. Cool slightly on wire racks. Serve warm with ketchup. Makes 4 servings.
Pastry for a Single-Crust Pie
In a medium bowl, stir together flour and salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in shortening and butter until pieces are pea size. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of the ice water over part of the flour mixture; toss gently with a fork. Push moistened dough to side of bowl. Repeat with additional ice water, 1 tablespoon at a time (1/4 to 1/3 cup total), until all of the flour mixture is moistened. Gather mixture into a ball, kneading gently until it holds together.

    To save time, use half of a 15-ounce package (1 crust) rolled refrigerated unbaked piecrust instead of the homemade pastry. Let stand according to package directions. Unroll and cut into 4 pieces. Roll each into a 6-inch circle.
