What's for Supper Saturday

Mmmmmm, PASTY!!!! A big hit in this house, but not familiar to everyone =) A pasty (pronounced "pass-tee) is a pie of meat and potatoes baked in a flaky crust. I like mine with lots of ketchup. To make:

2 C flour
1 C butter
1/2 teasp. salt
1/4 C milk
1# ground beef
3-4 potatoes
1 small onion

I let the butter sit out for 30-60 minutes to let it soften a bit b/4 I start. I cut it into "pats" and toss in a mixing bowl. Add the flour and salt, blend like you do when making a regular pie crust--when the flour and butter is formed into little peas, stir in the milk with a fork. When it's all combined, you'll roll out 2 crusts, one to line your pie plate, the other is the top.
Line a 9" pie plate with one crust, in it put your peeled and sliced potatoes--don't make the pieces too big or they won't get done during cooking!!! On top of this, diced onion--if you want, completely optional. Then crumble the RAW ground beef over this, do not brown before hand! The second crust goes on, seal the edges and make a few slits on the top for steam escape. Bake at 350 degrees for 60 minutes.
