Ulla Kjarval


  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 1 large tablespoon butter, melted
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 cup diced rutabagas (if desired)
  • 1 medium sized potato, diced
  • 1 La Cense Flank Steak, diced


Mix the filling together and season with salt and fresh cracked pepper. Pile half the filling mixture on only half the round of pie dough. Sprinkle with hot butter. Fold the dough over the filling, pressing edges together well. Cut slit in top of each into which a teaspoon of hot water should be poured occasionally to keep from drying out. Bake 45 minutes in hot (400 degrees) oven or until well browned. Then reduce to 350 for 15 minutes.
