I first tasted this while going thru the Menonite/amish Country. This is as Close As I can get.
Not sure why they call this a pot pie, Its more likea beef stew to me, with noodles.
Seems every home, just as in our Homes cooks a bit differently but with very basic ingredients. Nothing they don't have on hand.
Remove meat from the Broth. . .set aside
Make Dough while Beef is Stewing in the pot.
Add: Onion and parsley & frozen vegies. Bring broth to a boil.
add in alternate layers, Cubed potatoes, & dough squares to boiling broth
Beat egg and milk.
Add flour to make stiff dough.
Roll out paper thin, then cut into 1" squares.
Cover and cook 20 Min.
Adding more Water if Necessary to keep a good broth.
Serves 6-8 easily with Buttered Biscuits, or Fresh baked French bread.
