1/4 lb Butter
3/4 c Flour, white
3/4 c Flour, self-raising
Water, ice cold
2 lb Lamb or beef
2 md Brown onions
1/4 c Seasoned flour
-(flour with basil,
-oregano and pepper)
1/2 lb Mushrooms
1 Capsicum (green pepper),
1 c Bread crumbs
1/2 c Tomato sauce
MAKE PASTRY: Cut butter and flour with two knives until mixture
contains particles the size of small peas. Sprinkle with cold water
until pastry clings together. Shape into ball and place in
refrigerator for 1/2 hour.
Roll out to cover pie dish (about 8 inch). Leave enough pastry for a
top. Pre-bake the pie shell for 10 minutes at 350 degrees F. To
prevent crust walls from collapsing, fill with dry beans for the
first five minutes.
MAKE THE FILLING: fry onions and meat, continuing until onion is
lightly browned. Add flour mix, sliced tomatoes, sliced capsicum,
tomato sauce and bread crumbs to pan. Continue until capsicum is
softened. Add mushrooms and fry for 1 minute more.
Place the fried mix into the pre-baked pie shell, cover with pastry
lid and cook in moderate oven for 20 minutes. Serve hot .
