This recipe is my great grandmother's. An authentic Pennsylvania Dutch recipe. It is not a stew and not covered with crust. The recipe can be made with beef or chicken. I cannot think of a better comfort food recipe. Very simple to prepare. Dad fondly called this recipe "Tire patches".
- 1 stewing chicken or 1 beef chuck roast
- 1 egg
- 1 cup flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 bay leaf
- 1 cup sliced celery
- 1 cup chopped carrot
- Cover meat with water. Add bay leaf, celery, carrots and salt and pepper. Stew until the meat falls apart. Shred meat and return to pot. If using chicken, remove bones and skin and return meat to pot.
- To make pot pie noodles: MIx one cup of flour with one egg and one teaspoon of salt. Mix till soft ball forms. Roll out on a floured table. Cut in to 2" squares. Allow to dry for several hours.
- Add pot pie noodles, salt and pepper to taste and cook till desired texture. (al dente). Serve over mashed potatoes.
