Ingredients

    •    1 cup shortening
    •    1 1/4 cups ice water
    •    1 teaspoon salt
    •    5 1/2 cups thinly sliced potatoes
    •    2 carrots, shredded
    •    1 onions
    •    1/2 cup diced rutabaga
    •    1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
    •    1/2 pound lean ground pork
    •    1 tablespoon salt
    •    1 teaspoon ground black pepper

    •    1 cube beef bouillon
    •    1/2 cup hot water

Directions
    1.    Whisk together flour and salt in a large bowl. Cut shortening. Make a well in the center of the mixture, and quickly stir in ice cold water. Form dough into a ball. Set aside.

    2.    Dissolve the bouillon cube in the hot water. Combine uncooked vegetables, uncooked meats, salt, pepper, monosodium glutamate, and bouillon.
