"Simply delicious" is the best way to describe this meaty main dish! It's like a potpie with flecks of oregano in the flaky crust. —Sue Draheim, Waterford, Wisconsin


  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 cup cold butter
  • 4 to 5 tablespoons cold water
  • 1 pound boneless veal sirloin steak, cubed
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) diced tomatoes
  • 1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 slices cheddar cheese (1/4 inch thick)


  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, cheese, garlic salt and oregano. Cut in butter until crumbly. Gradually add water, tossing with a fork until dough forms a ball. Divide pastry into thirds; set aside a third.
  2. On a floured surface, roll out remaining pastry to fit a 9-in. pie plate. Transfer pastry to a pie plate. Trim pastry to 1/2 in. beyond edge of pie plate; flute edges.
  3. For filling, coat veal cubes with flour. In a skillet, brown veal on all sides in butter. Add the tomatoes, tomato sauce, onion, cheese, sugar and seasonings. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 30 minutes.
  4. Transfer into prepared crust. Top with cheese slices. Roll out remaining pastry. Cut into 2-in. circles. Place on top of filling. Bake at 400° for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown and bubbly.
