Ingredient List

5 oz. top round beef
1 large potato
2 medium shallots (or 1/2 medium yellow onion)
1/2 cup green peas
1/2 cup diced carrots
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 stick butter
8 tsp. ice cold water
1/4 tsp. salt
2 tsp. of bouillon flavor (Maggi or Knorr)
1 medium egg
2 tsp. curry powder
2 tsp. dried thyme

Cut beef and peeled potato into 1×1-inch cubes and place in pot along with chopped shallots (or onions). Season with salt, pepper, bouillon flavoring, curry powder and dried thyme. Add 1/4 cup of water and place over low-to-medium heat for 15 minutes. Mix periodically and allow to cool. In a large bowl or mixer, mix room temperature butter with sieved flour and salt until consistency of bread crumbs is reached. Add water by the teaspoonful while mixing until the mixture clumps together. On a cool, floured surface, roll out dough with a rolling pin, and using a cookie cutter, cut out round shapes. Brush cut dough with egg wash, and place 1 teaspoonful of pie filling. Cover and brush again. Seal with fork. Place in oven at 325 degrees for 45 minutes. Let cool and enjoy.
