Directions:
Measure flour and salt for pastry. Cut in lard until dough resembles small peas. Add water and divide into 6 equal parts.

Roll dough slightly oblong. Slice in layers on dough, first the potatoes, then the onions and last the meat, sliced or diced in thin strips. Bring pasty dough up from ends and crimp across the top. Making the pasty oblong eliminates the lump of dough on each end. Bake about 375 for 1 hour. Brush a little milk on top while baking.
