Steak Pot Pie Pastry


  • 3 cups flour all-purpose
  • 1 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup vegetable shortening
  • 1/4 lb butter unsalted butter, diced
  • 1/2 to 2/3 cup ice water
  • 1 egg beaten with 1 tablespoon water for egg wash
  • Kosher salt and cracked black pepper


  • Begin by mixing the flour, salt, and baking powder in the bowl of a food processor fitted with a metal blade. 
  • Add the shortening and butter and mix quickly with your fingers until each piece is coated with flour. Pulse 10 times, or until the fat is the size of peas. 
  • With the motor running, add the ice water; process only enough to moisten the dough and have it just come together.
  • Dump the dough out onto a floured board and knead quickly into a ball. Wrap the dough in plastic and allow it to rest in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
