Family Sized Beef Pie

Ingredients

Crust

  • 1 ½ c flour
  • 1 c butter or margarine, softened
  • 1 T cold water
  • ½ t baking powder
  • 2 small potatoes cooked, peeled, and grated (I usually substitute some potato flakes, because I'm lazy!)

Filling

Directions

Divide dough into 2 parts, one a little larger than the other. Roll the bigger piece into a rectagle on a 16 by 11 by 1 inch cookie sheet. Spread filling out within one inch of the edges. Roll the rest of the dough out one inch smaller around than the bottom crust and place it on top of the filling. Brush edges of bottom crust with water and fold over the top. Press with fork. Brush edges with egg white and prick with fork. Bake at 425 for 20 minutes. Cut in squares and serve with beef broth poured over the top of each serving.

Crust

Mix butter with cold potatoes. Add water. Sift together flour and baking powder and add to mixture. Don't overmix. Chill.

Filling

In a large frying pan, brown ground beef with the chopped onion. Drain. Add salt and pepper. Mix in rice and chopped eggs.
