4 c. flour
2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 c. shortening
3/4 c. plus 2 tbsp. water
2 eggs
2 lbs. round steak diced
6 med. potatoes, peeled and diced
1 large onions, chopped
garlic salt
1/2 c. butter

Preheat oven to 400. Sift together the flour and the salt. Cut the shortening into the flour as you would for a pie crust. Mix together the water, vinegar, and eggs. Mix into the crumbs with a fork. Roll out half of the dough into a rectangular shape and put into a 9 x 13 inch baking pan.

Mix together the meat, potatoes, onions, and spices. Dump into pastry-lined baking pan. Dot with butter (don't omit this). Roll out remaining dough and cover the meat mixture. Seal edges with bottom pastry and crimp. Cut steam slits on top. Bake for 20 minutes at 400. Reduce heat to 350 and bake for another 1 1/2 hours. Cut into squares and serve hot.

Den's family makes individual servings by rolling out the pastry as you would a pie crust. Fill half of the circle with meat mixture, fold other half over the top, and crimp the edges together. Put on a cookie sheet and bake at 375 for 45 min. to 1 hr.
