• Ingredients

    1 pound Doug’s Regular Grass Fed Ground Beef
    ½ cup finely chopped onion
    1 tablespoon Troyer Amish butter
    3 to 4 cups chopped turnips
    ½ teaspoon salt
    ¼ teaspoon pepper
    1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
    1 teaspoon beef soup base
    ½ cup water
    pie crust for 1 pie (make your own or unroll from the box)
    Troyer’s Amish Extra Sharp Cheddar Cheese, to serve


    1. Preheat oven to 425 Degrees Fahrenheit. In a cast iron skillet (I like my 10 inch for this) sauté ground beef and onion over medium heat until no longer pink (the beef) and slightly softened (the onion), about 8 to 10 minutes.
    2. Add butter and turnips to the skillet. Stir to coat with fat. Cook with beef and onion until lightly browned, about 5 to 8 minutes, stirring once or twice.
    3. Add seasonings and water, stir well. Cook for about 5 minutes until the water has combined with the soup base to make a sauce and the beef and vegetables are moist but not runny.
    4. Add the pie crust to the skillet, tucking it in around the edges and poking a few slits in the crust.
    5. Transfer skillet to preheated oven. Bake for 15 minutes, then turn down heat to 350 and continue baking another 30 to 45 minutes until crust is lightly browned.
    6. Serve with a hunk of cheese.
