Emily’s Beef Pie w/ Herb Crust

*2 Tbsp shortening or oil
*1 lb beef stew meat, cut in 1 inch cubes
*1 onion, sliced
*1/2 tsp steak sauce
*1/2 tsp seasoned salt
*1 cup canned tomatoes or jarred tomato sauce
*2 carrots, sliced
*2 celery ribs, sliced
*2 potatoes, peeled and sliced

Herb Crust:
*1 cup flour
*1/4 tsp thyme
*1/4 tsp rosemary
*1/4 tsp seasoned salt
*1/3 cup shortening
*(note:fresh herbs are MUCH better)

Brown meat in the 2 Tbsp melted shortening. Add onion and cook until onion is lightly browned. Add seasonings and 1 cup water. Simmer 30 mins. Add vegetables, simmer 30 mins longer. Place in round baking dish.

For crust, combine flour with seasonings. Cut in shortening w/ fork, until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add 3 Tbsp cold water all at once. Mix well to form stiff dough. On floured board, roll into a circle about 1/8 inch thick (should be 1-2 inches larger than baking dish). Crimp edges and cut 2 or 3 slits on top. Bake at 425 for 25 mins.
