    Mille®'s Note:

    Traditional British pie, normally filled with steak and kidneys. I hate kidneys, so I omitted them.

      I've made this now with both beef and elk, both very good (my preference is the elk). My family loves the crumbly cheese topping. A favorite all around (nothing like brown food for comfort)- I've now copied this to my family cookbook. Thanks Miller.

      Another winner, Miller! I followed the ingredients to the letter with one exception, I used olive oil in the place of meat drippings. At first it seemed that there would be too much liquid, but after taking it out of the oven the first time, it had reduced. Thanks for posting this.
