1-1/4 to 1-1/2 pounds. sirloin steak
2 Cup diced carrots
2 Cup diced potatoes
1 Cup diced onion
salt and pepper

Have your butcher grind the sirloin steak into a very coarse mixture or you
can do it a food processor. Add carrots, potatoes, onions, salt and pepper.
Mix well. Add 1 C. of mixture to a pastry circle that has been rolled out
like a pie crust. Fold over 1/2 of crust to enclose meat mixture and pinch
together edges. Brush lightly the pastry top with 1 beaten egg. Bake at
400F. for 30 minutes.

Makes 6

Pastry Dough:
2 1/2 C. flour
3/4 C. crisco
1 t. salt
6 T. water

Add salt to flour and add shortening. Cut the shortening with a fork into
the flour until it is the size of small peas. Add enough water to form dough
into a ball. Divide dough into 6 pieces. Roll out into pastry circles as you
would a pie crust.
