Steak and Kidney Pie II

lorrie sterling

This pot pie is a meal, a simmering stew beneath a flaky crust. It will satisfy the heartiest appetite. You can use the milder flavored veal or lamb kidney instead of beef. You need not soak it overnight in salt water.

Very much like my Grandma's recipe, which was one of my favorite dishes that she made. I can only think of a few differences. I believe she used baking soda rather than salt to soak the kidneys. She baked it in a very large, deep aluminum pie dish, and would place an inverted custard cup smack-dab in the middle of the lower crust before spooning in the filling. This held the top crust up and kept it from lying on the filling and getting soggy.

Good pie, but quite messy and smelly to make.

This is a very, very good recipe. One thing I do is put it in individual casseroles or foil loaf pans, cover with pastry, and what I do not use cover tightly and they are ready to use for the next time .
