|3 hours later. Meat and potato pie|
Get one pound of stewing steak and place it in a pan with water (cover meat), add a chopped onion and leave it to simmer for about an hour and a half and meat is tender. Peel and dice 4 large potatoes and add to pan, cook until soft. Add 2 OXO cubes and place in a large pie/casserole dish (like the one in the picture), make pastry with 8 ounces of sieved flour, a pinch of salt, 2 ounces of butter and 2 ounces of lard. Your mixture should resemble bread crumbs with no lumpy bits. (You can always substitute this with bought frozen pastry.) Make a well in the middle of your mixture (pastry) and add 2 to 3 tablespoons of cold water. Mix together using a knife until you get a firm paste. Roll out on a floured surface. Cover the pie dish and brush with a egg wash (1 beaten egg and a little bit of milk). Put in the oven and cook until it's golden brown. Serve with mushy peas and red cabbage.
Wash it down with a few pints of home brewed bitter.
See you later.
