1 oz.  kidney (optional)
  juice of 1/2 lemon
3   bacon rashers, chopped
2   onions, peeled and sliced
1.5 - 2 kg  (3-4 lb) chuck steak, trimmed and chopped into small cubes
2 cup  water
1/2 tsp  black pepper
1/2-1   level teaspoon salt
  few sprigs of fresh thyme or
1/2   level teaspoon dried thyme
1 stick  celery, finely chopped
3 Tbsp  plain flour
1   recipe shortcrust pastry
 
soak the kidney in a little water with lemon juice for 1/2 hour to 
remove any strong flavour. fry chopped bacon in a large heavy based 
saucepan, and when the fat starts to sizzle, add the onion. fry over a 
low heat until the onion is soft. add the chopped steak and finely 
chopped kidney. pour in water and season with salt, pepper and thyme. 
cover and simmer gently for about 1 1/2 hours. smooth out the flour 
with a little extra cold water, then stir this into the meat. stire over 
the heat until thick. pour into a deep pie dish of 2 litre (8 cups) 
capacity. if you own a pie funnel, place in the centre of the meat (you 
could substitute an upturned egg cup). roll out the pastry, cut a few 
strips for a collar. place these on the wet rim of the pie dish and 
brush with milk or beaten egg. lift remaining pastry onto a rolling pin 
and place on top of the pie. trim edges with a knife. press edges 
together with a fork to seal. make a few steam holes. glaze with beaten 
egg or milk and bake in a hot oven for 30-40 minutes.
