  • 12 oz. shin beef

  • Salt and pepper
  • 6 oz self-raising flour

    Cut up the beef and cowheel, cover with water and add the onion, salt and pepper. Simmer for three hours. Strain, and keep the liquid. Remove the bones and onion and cut the meat into neat pieces. Put into a greased pie dish, moisten with cooking liquid, and taste for seasoning. Mix the dour and suet with a pinch of salt, and mix to a soft dough with cold water. Roll out and put on top of the meat. Bake at 400°F, 200°C, gas mark 6 for one hour. Make gravy with the remaining cooking liquid, and serve the pie with gravy, mashed potatoes and a green vegetable.
