How to make it

  • In a Dutch oven, lightly brown onion in shortening. Meanwhile, combine flour, salt, pepper, ginger and allspice in a plastic bag.
  • Place meat cubes in the bag, a few pieces at a time, and shake well to coat. Remove onion and set aside. Brown beef on all sides. Add water; cover and simmer for 1 hour or until meat is tender, stirring occasionally.
  • Add potatoes, carrots and reserved onions; cover and cook for 10 minutes. Stir in peas and continue cooking until all vegetables are tender, about 10 minutes. Spoon meat mixture into a 9-in. square baking pan.
  • Roll pastry out to a 10-in. square; place over meat mixture and seal edges to pan. Cut several small steam vents in crust.
  • Bake at 450° for 25-30 minutes or until pastry is browned.

    " It was excellent "

    I used leftover prime rib, so I just added it at the end. Instead of water I used beef broth and had to add another cup as it simmered away. I also used different seasonings, bay leaves while cooking the potatoes and used thyme, rosemary, garlic and Worcestershire sauce. I used the convection fan at 425F and it cooked for 30 minutes. Next time I have stewing beef I'll try it with the ginger and allspice! :)
