Meat Pie with Potato Crust

Author: Top of the Rock Astronaut / Labels:

Cut cold roast beef into thin slices, removing the fat and gristle; cover the bones and trimmings with cold water; add a few slices of onion and carrot, and a stalk of celery, if at hand; let simmer several hours; strain off the broth and simmer in it the slices of beef, until they are perfectly tender. Season with salt and pepper, and pour into a baking dish; cover with a round of potato crust in which there is an opening; bake until the crust is done (about 15 minutes).

Potato Crust.—Sift together 2 cups of flour, half a teaspoonful of salt, and 2 level teaspoonfuls of baking powder. With the tips of the fingers work in half a cup of shortening, and then 1 cup of cold mashed potatoes; add milk to make a soft dough, turn on to the board, handle as little as possible and pat and roll out to fit the dish.
