- 1 Flank steak (around 1Lb)

- 1 Sweet potato
- 2 Cups cooked peas
- Rough chop steaks in 1/2" x 1/2" chunks, and reserve.
- Mince onion, dice mushrooms, and strain peas, reserving.
- If using frozen pie crusts, allow to come up to temperature.
- Put your sweet potato in a sealed ziplock bag, and microwave for 3 minutes on high. Allow to cool, then dice into small cubes.
- Bring a large cast iron pan up to high temperature, and add 2 Tbs oil.
- Working in batches, cook steak cuts until browned but not cooked through, and reserve
- Add onions, sprinkling with This Thing of Ours as your do, and sauté until well browned. Remove and reserve.
- Add butter and remainder of oil, then mushrooms, again sprinkling with This Thing of Ours, and cook until well browned and reduced by 2/3rds.
- In large bowl, add all your ingredients: steak, mushrooms, onion, sweet potato, and mushroom soup.
- Preheat oven to 375F.
- Shake over both Slow Cooker Superstar and This Thing of Ours Part II.
- Fold to combine, carefully as you do so as not to turn the whole thing into mush.
- Roll out both pie sheets to stretch them and thin them out. Lay down the bottom sheet in your pie dish, bringing it up all the way up the sides.
- Ladle in your pie mix, ensuring there are no gaps/holes, stopping around 1/8th" from the top.
- Carefully top with the second crust, trimming so that it's flush with the edges of our dish.
- Pinch and crimp together the edges of the crusts, then indent against the edges with the back of a fork.
- Sprinkle the entirety of the top of your pie with Everything But The Brooklyn Bagel Seasoning.
- Slice a few holes in the top of the crust to allow air to escape.
- Carefully run a dull table knife between the crust and dish to pull back so it doesn't become stuck during the cooking process.
- Ring the outside of your crust/dish with tin foil, and pop in the oven for 40 minutes.
- Remove foil, and cook a further 20-30 minutes, or until top is well browned and starting to flake.
- Take your pie out of oven, and allow at least 40 minutes to cool.
- Serve with a big squirt of ketchup, congratulate yourself on making the finest family pie one could make, pass around some slices, and devour.
